Gparted not starting from desktop menu in TC10
« on: July 14, 2019, 10:20:37 PM »
The desktop file for  gparted  in  TC10  looks like this:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ cat /usr/local/share/applications/gparted.desktop | grep Exec
Exec= /usr/local/sbin/gparted %f
tc@box:~$
As a result, all you get is a popup saying you need root privileges to run gparted. It should look like this:
Code: [Select]
Exec=sudo /usr/local/sbin/gparted %f
I have another issue with  gparted  described here:

Since you can easily destroy data with gparted, it was done like that deliberately to encourage users to think before proceeding.

Hi Juanito
OK, no problem. I fixed it at my end.
