GParted 0.7.0 is less than ideal, so am looking for something else. Is there a credible alternative?

[update] The two issues I was having had nothing to do with GParted.

    What are you looking for that GParted doesn't have? – Michael Mrozek Feb 6 '11 at 21:05

    ^^ This. GParted is the default for partition editing tasks on Linux. I would not know what is not 'credible' so, pray tell, what bothers you about it? – wzzrd Feb 6 '11 at 21:32

    Did you find that this was related to your USB stick problem (unix.stackexchange.com/questions/7028/…)? If so would you mind updating this question? It sounds more like a distribution-related (automounter) problem than a problem with gparted. – glomad Feb 7 '11 at 18:07
  • @ith You are right. – tshepang Feb 7 '11 at 19:44

Unless something changed recently GParted is de facto standard tool. The only viable alternative are partially CLI partially GUI tools like cfdisk.


partitionmanager is a KDE/Qt gui using the same libs GParted uses. (afaik) It is almost feature-equivalent.

As of now, it lacks support for setting file system labels on some file systems, where GParted can set them just fine.(eg. fat32) Other than that, it works just like GParted.
