My home partition is full, so you know at what kind of trouble can leads this. I have two partitions by 40 GB and I was wondering which would be the best method for transferring files or adding a path?

You can extend your size of the given partition with gparted. It's a tool used for creating/editing the partitions. To install it, open your terminal with CTRL + ALT + T and type:

sudo apt-get install gparted.

There you can extend your partitions. Helpful link: Geeks

I've tried Gparted and I have to un mount the home partition which is being used, so no dice. Any other suggestions? –  caldronis Jan 26 '13 at 17:36
