comment How do I run 'sudo' command inside a script?
@ChrisK yeah, don't do that. Just run sudo script.sh instead. It is both simpler and easier to do and makes for a more legible script.

@Testpriya that is a very different issue. If that's what you need, please edit your question and explain it. It is possible but more complex.

@AlexWolf that's because you've mounted it. Run sudo umount /tmp/foo and try again.

comment Lubuntu 15.04 & Windows 10: expanding partition
@AlexWolf what do you mean "no change"? Did you run sudo gparted? Did that open a window like the one I show above with your disk drive? Was the empty space not listed? If so, please take a screenshot and add it to your question.

Please edit your question and add the output of these commands: ls -l ~/.bash_history; history | wc; echo $HISTFILESIZE; echo $HISTFILE; ps -p $$ (run it in mate or gnome terminal and then also on xterm).
