I am using Ubuntu. I found from web search that to open Disk management below command is needed:

sudo palimpsest

But when I am trying it in the terminal and result was : command not found.

I also tried gksudo and gksu commands but nothing happens, help me to solve it . Thank you.

  • I have seen gnome-disk-utility details in the aptitude and Its mentioned there as palimpsest is from GDU . – rɑːdʒɑ Apr 20 '13 at 15:38

The program has been renamed to gnome-disks in GNOME 3.6.

Execute this command:

apt-get install gnome-disk-utility

If you get the result "gnome-disk-utility is already the newest version", then run:


It seems that it is not installed. Try to install the gnome-disk-utility package and see if it works.

  • its already installed – rɑːdʒɑ Apr 20 '13 at 15:45
