Hi! I'm a long time Windows user, first time Ubuntu user. From windows, I've partitioned 10 GB for Ubuntu. I installed it from a USB Flash Drive (I'm using a netbook that doesn't have a CD tray)

During the installation, I've chosen not to create a Swap File because I had a hard time getting this thing installed and I just wanted to get it over with and create a Swap File later.

Following directions from this site:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq

I went to terminal and typed this command:
gksu gparted

but I get this error message:
john@Acer-AOD250:~$ gksu gparted

(gksu:3957): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",

(gksu:3957): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",

(gksu:3957): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",

(gksu:3957): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",


Where do I go from here? How can I create a Swap File from that 1 GB partition I created?

Hi johnq1216. Welcome to forums!

That's is a known bug (check it here (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/light-themes/+bug/762167)). To solve it install this package: gtk2-engines-pixbuf

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf
Hope that helps.
Regards.
