BL5-64bit - GParted doesn't start anymore


When started through the Menu, Gparted doesn't start at all and if started through the terminal, it does start, but I get this message:

Code:
Unit -.mount does not exist, proceeding anyway.

======================
libparted : 3.2
======================
How can I fix this, please?

It looks like it's reading some hidden file called '.mount', or maybe '-.mount'

Find that if you can. Check homedirs (Yours and root's). See if you get some sense from 'sudo gdisk -l', and if you do, give it a disk to work on 'gparted /dev/sda' or whatever.

Again, moving from gksu to pkexec (in Ubuntu 18.04.2) is causing this.

I opened the launcher of GParted, where the Exec line looked like this:

Code:
Exec=/usr/sbin/gparted %f
After adding pkexec, like this

Code:
Exec=pkexec /usr/sbin/gparted %f
everything is alright again.

EDIT:
Well, not everything, to be exact, because when I start Gparted through the Menu, it's ok,
but when started through the terminal I still get the message.
I think, I can live with that, because I usually start Gparted through the menu anyway.

Still, I would appreciate a solution for this.

Hello

This is all I found after some quick web research
https://askubuntu.com/questions/1105...ceeding-anyway

If it does not impact to gparted fuctionality, I would ignore it.
