Thread: KDE quickusbformatter will not run

  1. #1

    Default KDE quickusbformatter will not run

    As title says, quickusb formatter throwsa error on use, saying installed software is not installed:

    Code:
    Kilbert@linux-f5tb:~> quickusbformatter
    **** FORMATTING AS FAT 32 
    EXEC COMMAND :  "mkdosfs" , ARGS:  ("-v", "/dev/sdi1") 
    Debug message from helper: Umounting device :  "/dev/sdi1" 
    Debug message from helper: Executing: /bin/bash -c "mkdosfs -v /dev/sdi1" 
    Debug message from helper: ERROR OUTPUT :  "/bin/bash: mkdosfs: command not found
    " 
    Debug message from helper: OUTPUT:  "" 
    Debug message from helper: EXIT CODE :  127 
    Debug message from helper: ERROR :  "Unknown error" 
    Debug message from helper: Current Dir :  "" 
    Debug message from helper: Current env :  ("DBUS_STARTER_ADDRESS=unix:path=/run/dbus/system_bus_socket", "DBUS_STARTER_BUS_TYPE=system", "HOME=/root") 
    ^X^C
    Kilbert@linux-f5tb:~> wheris mkdosfs
    If 'wheris' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf wheris
    Kilbert@linux-f5tb:~> whereis mkdosfs
    mkdosfs: /usr/sbin/mkdosfs /sbin/mkdosfs /usr/share/man/man8/mkdosfs.8.gz
    Kilbert@linux-f5tb:~>
    ANy help is appreciated.

    Need to be root from the errors. Most thinks in sbin need root permissions

    THE program asks for root password, and running as root creates same issue.
    Appears the program is looking for the mkdos etc.. in the wrong directory.
