I'd like to install Gparted on my mac, and I thought I could use Homebrew or Macports to help with that, but I can't seem to figure it out. I tried using Homebrew because I haven't really heard good things about Macports.

  • You cannot install GParted on Mac OSX. You will have to use the Live Version.
  • This is according to the GParted website itself.

Here is a screenshot of it:

GParted Requirements

  • You can definitely find GParted alternatives for Mac OSX here.
  • I found something interesting here, that parted does not even compile for Mac OSX.

Hope this helps!

Btw, the Ubuntu site has a nice guide about how to create a bootable USB stick from an .iso image on OS X: – waldyrious Dec 13 '15 at 11:36
