Open the Language Settings in Ubuntu and install the missing language support. After opening the settings the system will automatically remember the language files must be installed. My question is why doesn't choosing "marathi" at the start-up screen does all this for me automatically? We are not the developers. Create a bug report. ;)

Technically, the answer is "yes." You can use fdisk to partition in-use MBR disks and gdisk to partition in-use GPT disks. GParted will also let you alter any partition that's not mounted, or create new partitions in unused space, but GParted won't let you alter any partition that's currently mounted (or otherwise in use). The big caveat to fdisk and gdisk ...

You can alter only partitions that are not mounted. Since /, /usr, /home, ... are needed to run the system, you will not be able to change the partitions they are on from the running system. All other partitions (e.g. from an OS installed in parallel) can be altered after unmounting them, by sudo umount /mountpoint I think you can unmount directly from ...

Well. There are really a number of reasons that your installation can stall. I stumbled upon your question while looking for an answer to my own current (and also first) Ubuntu installation problem. I'm not versed well enough in Ubuntu (nor Linux in general) to be able to give your direct tips -- but I'll share some of my findings (some of which I have ...

You haven't said why you want to install an OS for one computer by using another one. Without that information, I can't evaluate whether your reasons are good. Odds are they aren't, though. EFI (which all Intel-based Macs use) is different enough from BIOS that BIOS tricks people have picked up over the years don't apply, and trying to use those tricks can ...
