I recently got a new(ish) computer, and I wanted to install Ubuntu on it (I use a [outdated] version on my main computer, so I figured it was no big deal.) I want to dualboot, so I opened up gparted as root and tried to resize the main partition (currently containing windows formatted in ntfs). It gave me this error:
and didn't let me touch the partition without getting mad at me. I have the required packages for mounting ntfs partitions that it says I'm missing, mounting the partition in nautilus and accessing it via /mount/whatever works fine, gparted is the only program to have this issue.
Is there a problem with my software, or is there an issue with the partition itself? I would have tried updating a few packages, but both wired and wireless internet were broken for some reason (never had this issue with 12.04). Thanks for any help you can provide.
