The OS is called Ubuntu, not Ubundu.

You will need to use live CD to shrink the partition next to the swap space by 2Gb then extend the swap space into the new freed space.

Obviously run a full backup if you have data that is important to you. In case of catastrophe.

Can you help with this problem?
