If you are talking about defragging the Ubuntu partitions then generally speaking you just don't need to. Some partitions types can become slightly degraded when they get very full (over 95% for example) but on the whole it's not required.

I use shake.
You also need to edit fstab and apt-get attr and libaatr-dev

Can you help with this problem?
