GParted doesn't run

into

Can't see any .pnd

  • Click on the green icon near the Xfce menu.

Still can't see any .pnd

  • Left-click anywhere on the center of the Xfce menu bar.
Panel-->Panel Preferences-->Items-->Battery Monitor

  • Launch Thunar (the file manager), and click on the "eject" icon.

  • It's a bug, probably from GTK. I don't know how to fix it yet.
