tune2fs: command not found

Postby jörg » 2019-07-31 06:57

Hello everyone,
in my new installed Debian 10 (buster) the package e2fsprogs 1.44.5-1 is present, but my input in root-console: tune2fs -c 25 /dev/sda6 says: command not found. Any help would be appreciated.
Greetings, Jörg

Code: Select all
# which tune2fs

Code: Select all
dpkg -L e2fsprogs | grep bin/

For a user declared as a sudoers, this works
Code: Select all
sudo tune2fs

....I would add, at least for me.
Because even as root, tune2fs command is found without tweaking any file anywhere.
Looks like I am the only one not facing the "command not found" problem / don't know why.
But it does not seem to be a real issue to type '/sbin/tune2fs' instead of 'tune2fs'.

For FAQ's sake...

We should run a pool to be won by the first person to predict which week will not have a question about the change to su -

It is a bit hard to search for the solution, when you do forum search for "command not found" it automatically changes it to "+command -found" which is extremely unhelpful.

Plain su should never be used (unless you know what you are doing and really need it). It puts you into your home directory with someone else's rights. Can create hard to diagnose failures when files are created or modified.
