gparted can't read f2fs partitions, even if gparted has created it!
in the information window of the f2fs partition I get the report:

"Unable to read the contents of this file system!
Because of this some operations may be unavailable.
The cause might be a missing software package.
The following list of software packages is required for f2fs file system support: f2fs-tools."

Additional info:
* gparted-0.20.0-1
* f2fs-tools-1.4.0

Steps to reproduce:
* create a f2fs partition
This task depends upon

Have you tried to install f2fs-tools package?
Comment by mattia (nTia89) - Sunday, 29 March 2015, 08:52 GMT
I tried again today.
Latest software installed.
Same issue.

ANYWAY I think I find the trouble: gparted show me this warning ONLY if the f2fs partition is unmounted.
Infact if gparted scans available devices and partitions while f2fs partition is mounted, gparted shows me no warning

For this reason I filed a new bug in gparted bugtracker and I request the closure of this one
