The upstream GParted team added a work-around to version 0.30.0 to
enable it to run seamlessly under Wayland.

See https://gparted.org/news.php?item=214

Unfortunately the packager for Ubuntu decided to not use the --enable-
xhost-root work-around.

See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gparted/+bug/1737248

The consequence is that GParted only runs seamlessly on X, and not on
Wayland.

You might try petitioning the packager who made the decision.

Ubuntu have decided to set xorg session as the default, as wayland is not yet mature enough.

There is a few similar reports against gparted, but not only; see lp:1726545 for example.

I cannot get xorg to work on my laptop, therefore wayland

sorry for the duplicate.

Klaas.
