Bug Description

I'm running ubuntu 18.04 with latest updates (Jan 18, 2018) on a Dell Latitude E6530: when trying to start Gparted it asks me for the sudo password and then nothing happens, Gparted doesn't start at all.

GParted: 0.30.0-3ubuntu1 (dated Jan 14, 2018)

running it from the shell with "sudo gparted" results in:

Unit -.mount does not exist, proceeding anyway.

I'm having the same issue. gparted was working fine. I restarted my pc and somehow it was uninstalled when i turned my pc back on. I installed it and tried running it and the same thing happened.

I'm running a completely clean fresh new install of ubuntu 17.04

Output for "sudo gparted":
