• Can't Start Gparted....

    Hello Everyone,

    For some reason it appears that my gparted has stopped working (I used a few weeks ago without any issues). I cannot launch the application from my Gnome DE at all.

    I tried firing it up in the Terminal to get the specific error:
    Error below:
    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo gparted [sudo] password for aahmad: Created symlink /run/systemd/system/-.mount → /dev/null. Created symlink /run/systemd/system/boot-efi.mount → /dev/null.

    Anyone have any ideas on how I can get gparted working again please?


  • gparted
    gparted wants to run as root. Before starting it, allow root user to display applications on your desktop by typing the following in a command line. Refer GNOME bug 772875.

    xhost si:localuser:root

    [updates once a week] = [90% less problems]

  • @joekamprad – Thanks for the update! Running this command, will the change persist after a reboot?

    Just want to make sure the change sticks / persists correctly.

  • Thanks @joekamprad ! Got it fully working again under Wayland.

    Appreciate the help sir! =)
