So install it on the live DVD.

If I understand this proposal, I disagree. Gparted should always be run from a live CD/DVD in order to change any partition safely. If run from an HD installed O/S, one or more partitions will be locked or active.

Mint is slow to install high scoring ideas.

One aspect of Linux mint is that some things move slower then they should.


quake0 7 years ago

Can we get this idea considered at least.


quake0 7 years ago

Any news on this?

I agree with quake0; I can't see any reason why gparted shouldn't be installed. It's a great program, and doesn't take up much space.


quake0 7 years ago

To the two people that voted against this. Can you give a reason why?

Gparted is also useful for USBs and external drives,
and more user friendly then command line tools for partitioning.
