Install Gparted by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr \ --disable-doc \ --disable-static && make
This package does not come with a testsuite.
Now, as the
switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.
--disable-doc: This switch disables
building of the optional documentation. Remove it if you have
installed GNOME Doc Utils.
To manipulate file systems Gparted has a run time dependency on various file system tools (you only need to install the tools for file systems you actually use): e2fsprogs (installed as part of LFS), jfsutils-1.1.15, ntfs-3g-2013.1.13, reiserfsprogs-3.6.24, xfsprogs-3.1.11, btrfs-progs, dosfstools, mtools (required to read and write FAT16/32 volume labels and UUIDs), hfsutils, hfsprogs, nilfs-utils and reiser4progs.
Root privileges are required to run Gparted. If you wish to run the
application from the menu, further applications and configurations
are necessary. Examples of applications that may be used: gksu and
gksudo, kdesudo, or xdg-su. Another
simple solution is the GTK+ based
gnome-ssh-askpass2 (does not need
GNOME) that comes with OpenSSH-6.4p1, under the
contrib directory in the source.
