I’m trying to resize a Fat32 filesystem on a SSD. I installed GParted and verified the the bundles it needs are installed (dosfstools and storage-utils). However, GParted still won’t let me change the size of the partition, giving me this warning in the Information dialog.
Unable to read the contents of this file system!
Because of this some operations may be unavailable.
The cause might be a missing software package.
The following list of software packages is required for fat32 file system support: dosfstools, mtools.
What’s going on here, why does GParted not recognize that it has what it needs?
