as stated it is a fact that kpm IS slower than gparted. again it is nopt a matter of PERSONAL preference, it's a matter that gparted DOES work far, far, far, far, fae better thah kpm.
Care to share your metrics? In both GNOME & KDE?
partitionmanager in plasma works fine for me, leave gparted to gnome, xfce etc. if someone needs it, just install it and remove partitionmanager
With partitionmanager3 pay attention to the queue. Undo and redo until it is just right.
just replaced 3 for 4.
I see, but some reason I still have v3.3.1-1 installed. Guess I will try v4 when it is ready.
4 is in the repos. if you want it just open pamac and look for it.
Okay, it seems I was mistaken. If doing replacement route I needed to upgrade/replace both
partitionmanager (4.0.0-1) and
kpmcore (4.0.1-1) dependency. Along with a reboot. Now it appears to startup without any errors.
