I have a large hd that only 1/2 of it is an ext4 for /home. I am trying to make another partition using the XFS filesystem but its greyed out in Gparted. From what I have read here its already installed and loaded in the kernel module.

Ubuntu 13.10 x86_64

Because as gparted says in view -> Filesystem Support, it needs the xfsprogs package to be installed.

Thanks, though it was installed properly, Gparted shows exactly what package is needed. – Ronaldo Nascimento Feb 6 '14 at 17:45
