I cant find gparted to formate external disks

hi all

i’m wanting to format my external drives to ext4 from ntfs , is gparted still the go to app to do this ?

i cant seem to find it on my EOS lol or am i blind

Which application is the best for any given purpose is a matter of opinion.

That being said, if you don’t have gparted installed you can install it with:

sudo pacman -Syu gparted

It’s on the Live.ISO, available in Live-Mode. search for gparted in the Whisker-menue.

awesome thank you very much

exactly it is installed on the ISO but not per default on installed systems.
