Apparently, during the installation of Ubuntu 14.04, it did not delete an existing partition. Now, I want to merge that one with a new one (How to merge partitions?). However, deletion of the old partition gives this error:
Please unmount any logical partitions having a number higher than 6
Which I can't do because dev/sda6 is being used while running Ubuntu.
Is there any way to do this from the running Ubuntu? I already read about the option of using a gparted live disk.
The partitions to be merged are dev/sda6 and dev/sda7 (see the below screenshot).
