Unhappy Ubuntu 14.04 sudo gparted: command not found


I made the mistake of cloning over my cloning drive....reinstalled and updated to Ubuntu 14.04. I didn't setup the drive to begin with and I have no idea what's going on. After the reinstall and updates, I try to test the cloning instructions I was given and I get the line "sudo:gparted: command not find". Is there a step I missed in reinstallation or something I need to do to make this work?

becky1973,

Welcome to LQ.

We may need further information from you about this problem.

Before you go any further, have you got your valuable data backed up elsewhere?

What exactly are you try to achieve by cloning?

In Terminal you could try this instead:

Code:
sudo parted
This link about Gparted may help you:

The business I work for uses Ubuntu to clone drives that are not bootable but the data can be saved onto a new drive ( sudo ddrescue)

becky1973,

You appear to be using Antonio Diaz's Ddrescue:

http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html


Forensicswiki-Ddrescue:

http://www.forensicswiki.org/wiki/Ddrescue


In Ubuntu, Mint, Debian etc, to download and install Diaz's ddrescue, note that there is a g preceding ddrescue.

In Terminal:

Code:
sudo apt-get install gddrescue

Is cloning a suitable way of preserving your data?
