    gparted doesn't resize

    Hey!

    Im using the lastest buntu in tohsiba nb100 and now i want to make a new partition for windows. wich means i have to resize the only one i have. To do this im using gparted in a "liveusb" ubuntu.

    However, option resize/move (or something like that) does not apear clickable. But the hard disk is unmounted...

    How do i solve this? any clues?...

    thanks

    perhaps your live Ubuntu is using your swap file? try swapoff command

    You could try to start gparted from terminal with root privileges.
    gksudo gparted
    That worked for me
