@annoyingduck: Thanks :-)

Pacman warns you about old Perl packages, but not old Python packages. I just checked and hopefully that is coming soon:

@willemw You sir are a steely eyed missile man! Working fine now after rebuilding all 3 of those packages. Thanks for the help.

@annoyingduck: That's why mintstick cannot find the parted library. (Rebuild and) reinstall those 3.7 python packages.

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.7 /usr/lib/python3.7/ is owned by menulibre 2.2.1-1 /usr/lib/python3.7/ is owned by mugshot 0.4.2-1 /usr/lib/python3.7/ is owned by python-pyparted 3.11.1-1

And I checked, Python 3.8 is installed.

@annoyingduck: Did you upgrade all the python packages to 3.8? Check with: pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.7

And this is the output in the terminal when attempting to execute a format: /usr/lib/mintstick/ PyGIDeprecationWarning: GObject.timeout_add is deprecated; use GLib.timeout_add instead GObject.timeout_add(500, self.check_format_job) Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/mintstick/", line 7, in <module> import parted ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'parted' /usr/lib/mintstick/ PyGIDeprecationWarning: GObject.idle_add is deprecated; use GLib.idle_add instead GObject.idle_add(self.format_job_done, self.process.returncode)

@willemw Here's the terminal output that fires up the Mintstick GUI that you asked to do: mintstick -m format /usr/lib/mintstick/ PyGIDeprecationWarning: Since version 3.11, calling threads_init is no longer needed. See: GObject.threads_init()

The same thing happens, I choose the disc to format, hit ok,/usr/bin/python3 requires SU, blah, blah...nothing happens, just an error has occured pops up. And yes Python3 is there in the mintstick location file.

No. What's the error message? (Run "mintstick -m format" from the command line. I assume you are launching mintstick-format.desktop. Does the first line of /usr/lib/mintstick/ contain "python3"?)

I keep getting an error has occurred when trying to format any drives since the last build. Anyone else showing this, happening on 3 of my machines, all running XFCE

@erikdubois: Thanks for reporting. Updated to Python 3.
