Install GParted Partition Editor On Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick Meerkat”

The GParted application is a graphical partition editor for creating, reorganizing, and deleting disk partitions. A disk device can be subdivided into one or more partitions. The GParted application enables you to change the partition organization on a disk device while preserving the contents of the partitions.

GParted uses GNU libparted to detect and manipulate devices and partition tables. Several optional file system tools provide support for file systems not included in libparted.

Features

Create partition tables (e.g., msdos, gpt)
Enable and disable partition flags (e.g., boot, hidden)
Perform actions with partitions such as:
create or delete
resize or move (while preserving data)
check
label
copy and paste

Alternatively you can use the terminal to install GParted. Open the terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal ) and type:

~$sudo apt-get update

enter your password. and then type

~$sudo apt-get install gparted

This ensure the installation of the most current version.
