139 <para>
140 To manipulate file systems Gparted has a run time dependency on various
141 file system tools (you only need to install the tools for file systems you
142 actually use):
143 <xref linkend="hdparm"/>
144 (required for optionally display serial number device information),
145 e2fsprogs (installed as part of LFS),
146 <xref linkend="jfsutils"/>,
147 <xref linkend="ntfs-3g"/>,
148 <xref linkend="reiserfs"/>,
149 <xref linkend="xfsprogs"/>,

158 reiser4progs.

160
161 <para>
162 Root privileges are required to run Gparted. If you wish to run the
163 application from the menu, further applications and configurations are
164 necessary. Examples of applications that may be used:
165 <ulink url="http://people.debian.org/~kov/gksu">gksu</ulink>,
166 <ulink url="https://launchpad.net/kdesudo">kdesudo</ulink>, or
167 <ulink url="https://github.com/tarakbumba/xdg-su">xdg-su</ulink>.
168 Other solution is to use <application>pkexec</application>, from
169 <xref linkend="polkit"/>, but some configuration is necessary.
170 Another simple solution is <xref linkend="ssh-askpass"/>. Below, we
171 describe these two alternatives: "ssh-askpass" and "pkexec".
