I am attempting to rename an HFS+ partition for a friend to use. After formatting, the volume appears as "untitled". Gparted and Nemo cannot seem to relabel it due to their own limitations for dealing with HFS. I can read/write normally, but currently cannot edit the GPT label, which is what I want to do. How can I do this?

  • In GPT the label is the partition name. parted supports changing it, so gparted should too. – ajeh Jun 26 '18 at 20:52
  • My apologies, gparted does not seem to have a function to change a partition name, at least not on the surface. But parted can. – ajeh Jun 26 '18 at 21:02
