I had Windows and installed Ubuntu 12.10 alongside Windows.

I want to allocate suitable disk space to Ubuntu. I installed the Gparted Parition Editor from the Software Center.

My problem is: It closes down as soon as I open it.The same happens when I try to open it through Terminal.

This is the message I get in the terminal:

(process:2977): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
    Using the fallback 'C' locale.
======================
libparted : 2.3
======================

(gpartedbin:2977): glibmm-ERROR **: 
unhandled exception (type std::exception) in signal handler:
what: locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid

Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

This is the result of sudo fdisk -l:

Try running it from the command line and see if there is any output: sudo gparted –  psusi Jan 2 '13 at 1:52
    
Please make it clear whether you have done a Wubi installation (= Ubuntu within Windows) or whether you installed Ubuntu alongside Windows in its own partition. –  user25656 Jan 2 '13 at 5:21
    
@psusi If I run it through terminal.It happens the same but I have the following messages.I don't understand it. I am new to Ubuntu. (process:3347): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.

@vasa1 . Honestly I don't know the difference between the two but is there any way I can check that and let you know. –  user12448 Jan 2 '13 at 14:46
