    Question How to install GParted on Live-USB of Linux Mint 17 MATE


    I would like to install/include GParted on Live-USB of Linux Mint 17 MATE RC 64-bit. This is to prepare the flash drive to format drives even when there's no internet available to install GParted. I believe GParted has been removed from Mint ISOs since Mint 16.

    Thanks a million in advance.

    I ran up a test copy of 17 Mate yesterday and noticed that Gparted has been replaced with a different program, but i can't remember what it's called. Look through the list from Menu and you'll find it.

    Forgot to mention in original post that, I went thru the Menu but couldn't find GParted or anything similar.

    What happened when you tried to install it? sudo apt-get install gparted

    If it wasn't found, you may need to add repositories. See the link below for Mint 16. Should work.

    Gparted is on the Cinnamon version, just not Mate. Do you have persistence setup on the flash drive?

    Thanks for the reply.

    i just prepared Live-USB using Unetbootin... Guess i need to "install" Mint on a flash drive... But then it's gonna take quiet bit more space than usual under 2GB...??

    You can use unetbootin to put the LiveCD on the flash which will take up the same amount of space as a Live CD/DVD. You can add persistence with unetbootin for Ubuntu derivatives like Mint.

    Thanks again for the reply. How could I do that, so when I install GParted on a Live-USB (Live-DVD), it will stay even after reboots.

    When you run unetbootin, at the bottom of the window there is an option to enable persistence in Ubuntu. Just tick the box and you should have it.

    You have the option to actually set the persistence size in MB, click the up/down arrows on the right of the input box or enter a number in MB.
