I did read about resizing partition with gparted but it doesn't work for me...

I have Windowns 7 on a primary partition and lubuntu on extended, I mean on extended I have 'root' partion and 'swap'.

I've shortened Windows partition on the primary partition and would like to lengthen my root on the extended partition.

I run my bootable usb with lubuntu and run gparted... and only I could do was changing partition I shortened... I cannot increase size of my lubuntu root partition...

I am planning totally delete windows partitions and use whole HD for lubuntu is there any easy way to make all my lubuntu as a primary and the only one partition on my HD? (of course didn't mention of swap).
