[SOLVED] Gparted help

Post#1 by Jack » 12 Nov 2017, 16:30

It won't run or work in the menu only in terminal.

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest/Downloads# gparted
======================
libparted : 3.2
======================
Failed to execute child process “mkudffs” (No such file or directory)
root@porteus:/home/guest/Downloads#
What is wrong or how can I fix it.

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

Jack, do you install udftools (I mean udftools-1.0.0b3-x86_64-2_slonly.txz)?

Google
Failed to execute child process “mkudffs” (No such file or directory)

https://fossies.org/linux/gparted/ChangeLog
908 When udftools are not installed and the mkudffs program isn't found
909 GParted would report this error during startup:
910
911 # ./gpartedbin
912 ======================
913 libparted : 3.1
914 ======================
915 Failed to execute child process "mkudffs" (No such file or directory)

Try:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm -g udftools

Go to /usr/share/applications and try to find the gparted.desktop file. Open it with leafpad or another text file utility. What do you see after exec= ?

On my Cinnamon desktop the GParted app is:

/usr/share/applications/gparted.desktop

Exec=gksu gparted

Where did you get GParted from Jack? USM should have the correct app with the module, plus all the required modules.
