135
136 <para>
137 To manipulate file systems Gparted has a run time dependency on various
138 file system tools (you only need to install the tools for file systems you
139 actually use):
140 <xref linkend="hdparm"/>
141 (required for optionally displaying serial number device information),
142 e2fsprogs (installed as part of LFS),
143 <xref linkend="jfsutils"/>,
144 <xref linkend="ntfs-3g"/>,
145 <xref linkend="reiserfs"/>,

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