Okay, so I was fooling around on Ubuntu 13.10, then noticed that when I right-click my USB stick in Nautilus, I have a "Format" option.
When I click "Format", a new window opens and asks for what to do. I choose my options, then click on "Format".
And then, nothing appends... My USB drive is not formatted, and I don't have anything asking for my password.
I looked around, and found this thread, which is not helping, since the "Format" option on right-click does not appear with nautilus started as super-user.
Any thoughts ?
Please note that I'm not trying to format my USB-stick, I'm trying to format it with the built-in nautilus action.
The "Format" option in context menu is provided by gnome-disks. Gnome-disks can't format my drive either. So far, I've found using it one error
