My computer has an unallocated free space of 3.69 GB according to Gparted in Ubuntu. I want to add that unallocated space of 3.69 Gb to the Ubuntu Partition. My problem is that when I type the command line in the terminal in Ubuntu I get dev/sda 5 to 8 with Linux. To which one do I add this unallocated free space ??

Please check the graphics if that helps.

It depends on where you want the extra space on your file system. If you type 'mount' in a terminal, it will give you a list of partitions that are mounted at that time. You will most likely want to add the free space to the partition specified mounted as root, /. You could also add it to /home /var, /etc depending on your set up.
