Question gparted error inotify_init failed: Too many open files


Hi,

I have got error with gparted started from terminal:
inotify_init failed: Too many open files

I have read somewhere that is should be corrected by increasing of value of /proc/sys/fs/inotify

but there are three values:

cat /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_queued_events
16384
cat /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_instances
128
cat /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches
65536

which one is appropriate to increase ?

thank you,
kind regards,
M.

P.S. anyway, I have been expectring to increase some value of number of opened files , not those ones ;-)

Yes but I thought the key was "fs.inotify.max_user_instances"?
