# Ubuntu – Can I leave GParted on a system after installation

gpartedubiquity

Is it possible to leave Gparted on the system after installation, seeing as it is already on the LiveUSB? As a related question, why is it removed from the final system in the first place?

As user320 explained, you can install GParted through the Software Center or sudo apt-get install gparted. As for your second question, I believe the reason why GParted is not a part of the final installation is because Canonical decided to go with Disk Utility, which is a lighter version of GParted. The idea is to give the end user direct and clear access to simple but effective utilities; providing them with power tools from the get go can be confusing and maybe even dangerous. Power users, on the other hand, can find those power tools on their own.
