In Fedora 18 if I remove usermode-gtk, gparted silently fails to run from the application menu. It can still be run from the console.

Gparted should have an explicit dependency on usermode-gtk.

This is a packaging issue, can you please fix it? It has been opened for 10 months!

Thank you!  This one bugged me to no end.

I can confirm both the bug and the workaround.

You may get a faster response by changing the title to something like "gparted missing dependency on usermode-gtk."

Comment 3 Joseph D. Wagner 2013-05-04 06:07:39 UTC
Also, I'm using Fedora 18, so this bug impacts that version too.

Comment 9 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-04 08:04:17 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
