Terminal dosen't recognize command unmount

Asked by william on 2009-02-02

I'm trying to rename a USB drive and make PGP key on encrypted USB Drive. Running 8.10 off live disk. Have tried:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo unmount /dev/sdb1
sudo: unmount: command not found
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall
Reading package lists... Done

build-essential is already the newest version.
checkinstall is already the newest version.

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo unmount /dev/sdb1
sudo: unmount: command not found

Thanks for the help

are you looking for umount ?

Please type:

sudo umount /dev/sdb1

instead of:

sudo unmount /dev/sdb1

Hope this helps

Tab key is handy for that predictive text feature - but not usually good on the first letter obviously ;)

Good luck and regards from
