I want to take 20G from my /home and put it in my /. I logged into live installation drive and launched gparted.

The partitions look like this:

enter image description here

sda4 is root, sda5 is boot and sda6 my home partition.

If I click on sda6 and resize it from left to right I will get a warning that moving partition might cause your operating system to fail to boot and after that partitions look like this: enter image description here

Now there is sda5(my boot partition) in the way and the only way is to move it to the right of my unallocated space like this:

enter image description here

Now I can merge unallocated space with root:

enter image description here

If I click apply will lgparted be able to generate new fstab or do I have to do it manually?

Your fstab won't need updating if UUIDs of your partitions dodn't change. But it is worth checking.

But you'll need to re-install grub.

  • so I should re-install grub after gparted finishes or do I need to boot into live usb and fix that after reboot?

  • You fix it from LiveUSB. But you'll need to mount your /boot and chroot there.
