Topic: Unable to run gptsync

I downloaded GParted live 1.5.0 amd64 to try to repair my bootcamp partition startup on my Intel based Macbook Pro.  According to the docs I need to run gptsync.  Whenever I enter the terminal and type

sudo gptsync /dev/sda
I get the error
"BASH: gptsync: command not found." 

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Do I need to download another version of GParted?  That is what the docs indicate to do, but I can't figure out how to et the command to run.

Thanks in advance smile


Re: Unable to run gptsync

The package for gptsync appears to no longer exist for Debian GNU/Linux, upon which the GParted Live image is based.  The last mention I found for Ubuntu was in Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 which was released in April of 2014.  With that in mind you might try an older live version of Ubuntu Trusty, or an older GParted Live such as 0.18.1 which was released in 2014.

The gptsync command was added on the 21st of May, 2012 with the GParted Live 0.12.1-5 Stable Release so it should for sure be in that version.
