Use the Slackbuild (you will also need to install gtkmm).

The full list of dependencies is:

Code:
atkmm
cairomm
glibmm
gparted
gtkmm
libsigc++
mm-common
pangomm
That's some things to build - but still much less than other programs like Banshee I usually run it with "kdesu gparted" after that and it's fine

Why not a native CLI or live-disk unless you need to use it repeatedly, still?

I assume that jamison20000e suggested that you can have GParted on a live CD.

PS Or on an USB stick. I don't know why they don't suggest to simply use the dd command to write it on the USB stick though, assuming that you make the ISO image hybrid first using the isohybrid command (included in Slackware 14.1).

I could see if doing lots of partitioning non-stop, G\KParted is nice but if it's pre-installed here at home I maybe use it once if that plus what happens if you can't search for help and have to use the CLI tools?

Get and install sbopkg, there's a queuefile for gparted:

http://www.sbopkg.org/
Then:
Run (as root):
Code:
sbopkg -r
then:
Code:
cp /usr/doc/sbopkg-0.37.0/contrib/sqg /usr/bin/sqg
then:
Code:
sqg -a
That gets all the queuefiles.
Then:
Code:
sbopkg -i gparted.sqf -k
Easy.

I just tried, so I confirm the procedure to burn GParted on an USB stick

Download gparted-live here (at time of writing: version 0.18.0-2). Choose the architecture you want: i486 or amd64. To boot on a machine with an EFI firmware you must choose amd64

Go to the directory where you have put the ISO file.

For i486 type:
Code:
isohybrid gparted-live-0.18.0-2-i486.iso
For amd64 type:
Code:
isohybrid -u gparted-live-0.18.0-2-amd64.iso
Insert your USB stick and double check its device name with cat /proc/partitions as all data on it will be erased (you don't want to wipe out your hard disk, do you?)

Issue this command (I'm assuming your USB stick device is named /dev/sdx, replace x with the relevant letter):
Code:
dd if=gparted-live-0.18.0-2-<architecture>.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=1M

Not to mention the more we 'make' the more we can break (said with 386,423 files and KDE ) not that I'm worried with Slackware.

It's useful to have gparted both as a live CD, and installed on whatever computer(s) you have.

I had a need for a partition resizer and used the live cd version of gparted. It did the job with no problems. I resized a 500 gig partition to 750 gigs and it took hours. Be prepared to have the machine out of commision for a while if you use the live cd to resize a partition.

More than halve the time same here, resizing data partitions that is. Maybe it depends on the data?
