It's sometimes hard to check if the optional dependencies are already 
installed the system used for testing.  We often need to rely on reports 
like yours to resolve this type of things.

I would actually recommend gptfdisk instead of gparted. 

The user syntax is a lot easier.  We need to add that to the book.
