Bug Description

I recently upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10. Yesterday I added a new USB drive. I installed GParted which did its part. Then I went looking for DiskManager and found it is not installed. Disk is installed, but does not allow me to 'take ownership' of the drive.

SO, the situation is the drive has been prepped and formated in GParted, but I cannot put any data onto it. e.g. Only 'root' can do anything to the drive. It is intended to be another backup drive, but I cannot start such a process.

Ubuntu 12.04 had DiskManager, which allowed me to do things, including 'take ownership'.

Ubunto 12.10 does NOT have DiskManager, NOR can I install it.

Disk is a severely incomplete tool, by comparison.
