Ubuntu – How to format/partition SD card

kubuntupartitioningsd card

How can I format or partition SD card in Kubuntu?
Is there an application with GUI for this?

Best Answer

I would recommend installing gnome-disk-utility Install gnome-disk-utility, which allows you to add / remove partitions, format the partitions with a given filesystem, and change the volume label. Of course, for an SD card, you'll probably just want to format it (using FAT if you need Windows compatibility or Ext2 otherwise).

I don't think this application ships with Kubuntu by default, but it should be available in the repos. Install it with:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-disk-utility
