I can not find a way to start gparted from ubuntu 14.04 Live CD.

There is an icon on desktop for "Ubuntu Software Center", if I open it - it states that gparted is installed, but there is no icon to launch gparted on desktop. Also there is no menu with installed programs. Also there is no icon to start terminal.

If I press Ctrl+Alt+F2 - I am able lo switch to text console, but when I write gparted there - it throws error "Can not open display"

just press the command button on your keyboard (aka windows key) and type gparted to find the program.

to open a terminal in ubuntu press strg + alt + t. gparted can be run from there using

$ sudo gparted.
