When GParted is open, I cannot use the GUI to mount, unmount, or do other operations to partitions. The GUI (includes GNOME, KDE, and Xfce) complains that the "daemon is inhibited".
However, if I use the terminal, I can do all those operations normally as if GParted was not open.
My question is how can I disable or circumvent the restrictions that GParted places on the GUI? As a desktop user, this was confusing at first and not desirable.
