Questionhow to activate new USB "Flash drive " in Linux ? Pin

OK, first plug it in...duh...
Then run "lsusb" to verify the system actually acknowledged the new USB
Next run "gparted" - that should identify /dev .
While "gparted" is open use "Device" and "Create partition table " (gpt)
( It will take forever to run on 125GB stick...)
Create small test partition ( saves time) , use / add BOTH names
Recheck using fdisk ..

Use CLI to "mount" new USB stick -


For good measure - reboot...

After reboot the new USB file should show up in Ubuntu "file manager" AND
Ubuntu "Disks" .

This is where I get lost - it should with unexpected / different data.

"disks" shows mount point AND it may not be same as added using "mount"

the second issue is

so far the ownership of the device was not assigned

sometime that can be done in "disks" , but not while adding / activation of this new USB stick.

What did I missed?

Since I am not sure about /dev or mount point , if possible , I would prefer GUI application to change / assign ownership.

Thanks , appreciate any help.
