    Hi everyone, I've searched the forums for this problem because I assumed it would be common but I don't see it so please be patient if I'm asking an old question. I've got 7.1 Horus, Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS, Linux 6.5.0-14-generic on an HP elitebook with 8gb and 1 tb.

    I recently started getting the message "Low disk space on 'Boot' 0 bytes disk space remaining" and now I'm getting all sorts of problems, from graphics not appearing (esp icons) to applications freezing when I open them. I don't know if it's possible to ascertain whether the full boot partition is causing this but I thought if I could resize the boot partition it might help. I've got gparted but I can't see how to resize the boot partition. Even if resizing the partition doesn't help with the specific problem, I need to resize it anyway to continue doing updates, which I assume are responsible for filling the partition.

    Is it possible using gparted? Should I use thecommand line? Should I reinstall (I seem to remember it is possible to size partitions on installation). I'm an idiot when it comes to commands so please bear that in mind. Thanks.
