Bug Description

The package gnome-disk-utility depends on the package gdisk for many of its gpt functions, but gdisk isn't listed as a dependency.

Error message:
Error setting partition flags on /dev/sdb1: Error spawning command-line `sgdisk --typecode 1:"c12a7328-f81f-11d2-ba4b-00a0c93ec93b" "/dev/sdb"': Failed to execute child process "sgdisk" (No such file or directory) (g-exec-error-quark, 8) (udisks-error-quark, 0)

sgdisk is in the gdisk package.

Thank You For Your Time

Thank you for your bug report, it seems like those calls are coming from udisks2, it should probably Recommends/Depends on it
