    I have gparted with consolekit instead of elogind.

    Try
    apt-get install gparted elogind-

    or
    apt-get purge elogind gparted+

    @fungalnet – From which version of antiX are you starting with?

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    How do I tell this, all I know is sid, same installation it was 3 years ago I built trying to move everything I had since Debian 7 when it became impossible to upgrade without the “crap”.

    I have gparted with consolekit instead of elogind.
    Try
    apt-get install gparted elogind-
    or
    apt-get purge elogind gparted+

    Thank you, I admit my apt/apt-get skills have gotten very rusty getting spoiled with Arch’s pacman flexibility. I look and look at man/help and never can remember or find what I thought once existed.
    I will play with these commands and see. Maybe apt-get install gparted elogind- consolekit2- polkit0- …. what else do I have on the “most hated list”.

    The culprit is policykit-1 not elogind.

    gparted has policykit-1 as a dependency. gparted dependencies

    policykit-1 has these as a dependency policykit-1 dependencies

    As you can see, libsystemd0 and logind are required (which are provided by elogind in antiX).

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    I’ll try building gparted without policykit-1 as a hard dependency.

    Later: debs built and seem to work ok.
    Should appear in repos soon.

    For the impatient, get them here: debs

    You’ll need to install gparted and gparted-common eg from the downloaded directory:

    sudo apt install ./gparted-common_1.1.0-0.1.antix1_all.deb ./gparted_1.1.0-0.1.antix1_amd64.deb

    You are amazingly nice …. for a Yankee (northerner … mPaok) 🙂

    Where else would you ask for such repackaging and get it.

    @fungalnet – Just to check, with the latest changes, gparted no longer needs elogind, correct?
    However, it does need dbus.
