Introduction

[GParted] is a powerful HDD partition editing tool. Use it to make/delete/resize nearly any file format. GParted is available in the extra repo and also as a [Live CD] if you'd prefer. One reason to actually download the Live CD would be that you need to make modifications to your root filesystem's partition which you cannot do without it.

Installation

GParted is in the extra repo as mentioned above, to install it simply use pacman as you would with any other arch package

# pacman -S gparted

Optional Dependencies

The base gparted package doesn't come with support for all filesystems. Here is a brief list of additional packages you can install to add support for different filesystems:

e2fsprogs: for ext2/ext3 partitions
dosfstools: for fat16/32 partitions
jfsutils: for jfs partitions
ntfsprogs: for ntfs partitions
reiserfsprogs: for reiser partitions
reiser4progs: for reiser partitions
xfsprogs: for xfs partitions
