The latest Ubuntu update included Linux version 4.15.0-23-generic. This
appears, after a single test after a reboot, to have allowed a FAT-
formatted USB memory stick to be recognized and mounted. I opened the
device and copied a file to it then unmounted it with no problem.

However, the encrypted device still does not work. When inserted, a
dialog box appears that allows no input except in it. I entered the pass
phrase, but nothing happened except the pass phrase (dots only) were
spread out beyond their input area. The machine was effectively locked
out. Previously, I had power cycled the machine to get out of this
condition, but this time I had an appointment and just left it. When I
returned several hours later, the dialog box had disappeared. Yet I was
not able to access the device: a box with an error message appeared
instead. Nor could it be ejected: "Writing data to Lexar USB Flash Drive
Device should not be unplugged."
