From inside my bash script, is there a way to increase my Xdialog default font size? If not, is there any other way to do it? I found a commercial program using Xdialog with instructions on increasing the font size, but they did not say how they did it. But, it does mean it can be done:[URL]...

I have a few VMs set up with virtualbox but am finding that I'm now running out of space in some of the VMs. I really don't fancy creating new VMs and reinstalling and configuring them so is there an easy way to increase the size of the virtual disks?
I have 4 primary partitions on my hard drive. One of these partitions has been divided into 3 logical partitions with some free space left over. The order is this: "swap", "/", "/home", and about 80GB of unallocated space. I want to incorporate that unallocated space into the home partition. I tried this by booting a live CD and starting GParted but it didn't give me the option to increase the size of my home partition or the primary partition as a whole. The only thing it would let me do is decrease the size of my home partition.
i have this directory with multiple images 'pics' and the size is 20mb, and i want to make a .zip or .rar package of this directory but with an increased size so the .zip/.rar file will be 100mb, and then when you extract it the file size is the original 20mb
Finally i have installed ubuntu 10.10 on my home PC. Its working so so good i cant really imagine :-). At the time of partition due to my immaturity, i selected the size of '/' to be 10 Gb. Now i want to increase it without reinstalling ubuntu. Is there any safe way of doing it ? i did some research and came to know that Gparted might be of some help, but i will really be grateful if any of you can guide me.
the use of livecd for example, can i use liveusb instead ? i was thinking of making liveusb of centos 5.5.
Is it possible to increase the size of a partition that is using LVM?I have 5GB of unpartitioned and unallocated space on my disk. I wish to add this to my VG. This free space is physically before the LVM partition.Can I increase the size of the physical partition using pvresize? Or is the only way to to create a new 5GB partition, add it to the VG and allocate it to the LVs? This is not ideal as I wish to minimise the number of partitions I have on the one disk.
I have installed ubuntu in my 500GB passport drive. The ubuntu partition size is 120GB. I want to increase the root partition size because i ran out of disk space for "/" I have installed Gparted and accidentally created new partition table. Then all my disk space turned into unallocated space. So, i immateriality rebooted my system. Then, I am not able to boot into the drive. Moreover it is not detecting in windows too. How to undone that "MISTAKE" ??
I copied 10.4 from a 20gig hd. onto an 80 gig hd with Clonezilla and now I can't get Gparted to expand the partition to include the 50 gig that is unallocated. Obviously I cloned the drive incorrectly.
I am very much new user of ubuntu and hardly know anything about linux. What is swap memory? I have dual boot system with windows7 and ubuntu 9.04. My hard disk size is 320GB and RAM is 4GB. Currently swap memory size is 4.3GB. Can I increase swap size? Will it have any advantage? How to do that?
