    gparted live CD

    I have down loaded the gparted iso and made a live CD. It works fine except i can't seem
    to find the tools to exit or close when i am finished. Okay the exit icon is there but doesn't do anything. I have been doing a hard shutdown to close the program, but i
    must be missing something.
    Any suggestions?

    You have to double click the icon then you'll see a list of options such as shutdown, reboot and one other I forget.

    Do all the otehr options work?

    Thank you; I will try this. None of the options in toolbar with
    the exit icon seem to work.

    It sounds daft but honestly, this foxed me for ages until I realised it needed double clicking.

    Hopefully this will fix it. I just tried a USB install of Gparted 0.14.0-1 and not much has changed. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks again, I don't think i tried double clicking last time.
    Can't remember for sure though.

    An update here, unfortunatly the double click doesn't work. When i copied the CD, I
    made 2 copies, same results with both. Maybe it's the download ?

    I downloaded from teh gparted home website though it was bas**id slow.

    When you start Gparted to you select anything other than default options (bar preferred language)?

    Now I come to think of it, I remember that it was hit and miss with the older version on older laptops.
    Are you able to select the exit button using tab button?

    All i have used so far is the default options. I have tried pretty much every keyboard trick i can think of.
    Gparted works, i just wonder about the possible side effects of always doing
    the hard shutdown?

    I find that Parted Magic (which contains Gparted and more) is much easier to work with.

    I saw that on the website when i downloaded, but being unfamiliar with it elected
    to try gparted instead.
    Thanks for the tip. i will look into it.
