View Full Version : problem installing g-parted

May 17th, 2008, 01:42 PM
I tried installing g-parted on my IBM THINKPAD X23 running ubuntu 8.04 using package manager from online depository, but it has not finished installing fully and now my hard drive is being read all the time even when laptop is idle.

G-Parted does not show in accessories but shows as installed under package manager. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but is still the same situation.

Can anybody help as I am a newbie

You could try using synaptic and "Fix Broken Packages" in the edit menu, but if that doesn't work try entering
sudo dpkg --configure -ain terminal. That may well fix it for you.

You might try running:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure gparted

to see if that clears up your problem. Or completely uninstall and reinstall the package.
