Just in case you don't really want to use gparted, but just want a GUI partition manager, the latest KDE version have KDE Partition Manager, which is really great (upgraded KDE courtesy of AlienBOB as usual: http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/new-...current-users/ ; and in case you're not using -current: http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/kde-...t-if-you-want/ )

Well, parted is in the /l series (not in /extra), so it should be already installed (in case of a full installation, of course).

Other dependencies are listed in schmatzler's post #4 of this thread

Sorry Didier, I used Akragator to look at the 0 replies today and found myself commenting blind into a live discussion a couple of time. Didn't mean to create confusion

No worries dijetlo, things like that happen (to me as well :-)

Let me add that your posts show that you are helpful to others, and IMO only that counts.

SzBoardstretcher made an excellent point the other day in regards to the existing threads being used by others as part of a knowledge base available to the community so word selection and clarity need to be considered as well. I know that little search box in the corner up there became my very good friend over the years when I was struggling with this stuff.
But just the same, thanks, it means a lot coming from you.

Accuracy is a good thing and we all value it, but if one fails at doing something blindly following a wrong recipe, that person will have learned to always exercise his or her critical mind and think by him or herself, and that is invaluable.

But, I'm stretching this thread off topic, sorry

I've missed a VERY IMPORTANT step out of post #9!!!
After copying sqg to /usr/bin, open it in your favourite editor, and change the release number to 14.1 in this line:
Quote:
REPO_BRANCH=${REPO_BRANCH:-14.0}
Sorry about that.
