KDE Partition Manager

KDE Partition Manager is an application to help you manage the disk devices, partitions and file systems on your computer. It allows you to easily create, copy, move, delete, resize without losing data, backup and restore partitions.

A large number of file systems are also supported:

  • ext2/3/4, Btrfs, Linux swap
  • Reiserfs
  • F2FS
  • NTFS
  • FAT
  • exFAT
  • LUKS encryption support
  • and more....

Back up your data before using this software. KDE Partition Manager is a potentially dangerous program for your data. It has been tested carefully and there are currently no known bugs that could lead to data loss, but nevertheless there is always a chance for an error to occur and you might lose your data.


KDE Partition Manager is a KF5 application, so you will need the KDE frameworks libraries to run it on your computer. Most modern OSs will install them as dependencies for you when you use their default package manager as the installation method.

It also makes use of external programs to get its job done, so you might have to install additional software (preferably packages from your distribution) to make use of all features and get full support for all file systems.

The methods listed below for each major OS are based on executing the installation commands on a terminal window. Alternatively, you can use your OS’ package management app.


sudo apt install partitionmanager


As the root user:

apt install partitionmanager

CentOS, Fedora, RHEL

sudo yum install kde-partitionmanager


sudo zypper install partitionmanager


  1. Enable the community repository on /etc/pacman.conf:
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
  2. Install the partitionmanager xz package:
    pacman -Sy partitionmanager


sudo emerge partitionmanager
