[WORKAROUND] Errors galore in gnome-disk utility.

Post by leetwanker » Thu May 07, 2015 8:03 am

It seems gnome-disk-utility is pretty limited in what it can do for me. Half the things I try give me errors like this:

Code: Select all

Error Creating Disk Image
Error allocating space for disk image file: Invalid argument (g-io-error-quark, 13)
I saw in another post that installing gdisk would get rid of the errors so I installed it. I'm still getting errors.

Code: Select all

An error occured
Error seeking to offset 2225496064 (g-io-error-quark, 13)

Code: Select all

Error mounting filesystem
Error mounting /dev/sdb2 at /media/justin/4380b11d-8416-4e71-96b3-3d1b010e8861: Command-line `mount -t "ext4" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sdb2" "/media/justin/4380b11d-8416-4e71-96b3-3d1b010e8861"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

 (udisks-error-quark, 0)
And so on and so forth...

Seems that there are bugs in udisk2 . .

Askubuntu - g-io-error-quark, 13

Thanks so much for that link!

Step 1: Uninstall gnome-disk-utility
Step 2: Do this:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-tests
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-disk-utility
All better now? Enjoy!

workarounds are good but this tool is a serious problem.
you can easily break the system.

has anybody alerted the Mint team?
has anybody filed a bug report?

I am trying to do that, but am at a loss
Thanks

I just tried to benchmark a new 1TB drive with a fresh 100 GB empty partition set up as ext4 using 32 bit Linux Mint 17.3 Did benchmark with same system, and get similar error, even now Jan 2018.

Error seeing to offset 30000610816 (g-io-error-quark, 13)
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....
