Title: gparted doesn't work in the new Debian 10.0 in my Dell Inspiron 1545
Post by: nogueira13 on September 03, 2019, 11:23:04 pm
I already done twice the install of Debian 10.0 in my Laptop Dell Inspiron 1545 and I choose Gnome (under Xorg, Gnome Weyland and Mate). I install it using the Netinstall CD disk. In the two cases, I can't use gparted. I installed it but when I start it, I type the root password but the app doesn't open. Even in Mate graphics manager.
I already received the following message when I tryed to format an usb pendrive:
"Error synchronizing after initial wipe: timed out waiting for object (udisks-error-quark, 0)"
Another error that I found is that when I start an app "overgrive", it is not showed me that the app is running in the notifying panel.
I beg your pardon for my poor English but my native language is Portuguese.
I hope you may help me.
Sincerely
Antonio Carlos

What happens if you run:
Code: [Select]
/usr/sbin/gparted
in a terminal ?

I received this message:

[email protected]:/home/nogueira# /usr/sbin/gparted
Unit tmp.mount does not exist, proceeding anyway.

And gparted didn't openned.

You might want to read this
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gparted/+bug/1744372
and this
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gparted/+bug/1737248

Yes they're specifically about Ubuntu, but I'm going to bet the same 'Gparted won't work under wayland' applies to Debian too.

Maybe gnome-disks would be a better bet, unless you want to try a version of Gparted that does implement --enable-xhost-root

Couldn't you just switch out of a wayland session back to an X session .. then use Gparted .. then switch back ?
