Does KDE not come with a partition editor?

Postby blevo on Sun Jul 19, 2009 4:59 pm

Just tossed in the new RC. Never played with KDE before. After going through some of the programs in the menu I didn't see a partition editor. Is there one?

What do people generally use for KDE?

Yes, I don't know if it is installed by default, I don't use KDE, but if not you can use the GUI app QTParted. It's the KDE equivalent to GParted in Gnome.

You can also just use Parted... (type 'sudo parted' in a terminal)

Thanks linuxviolin,

don't think one is included in the install (GUI anyway)... I didn't see qtparted in the package manager. Guess I'd have to add a repository for that then... there was "partition-manager" for KDE though

meh, onto more pressing matters

Yup, partitionmanager, for KDE, found in Synaptic Package Manager.

I've found that KDE's partition manager does not work as well as Gparted so I run Gparted in KDE.
