Ubuntu desktop manual partition - Define third partition

Choose partition type for the third partition. Remember that we can only create four primary partition. This is the last partition example on how to create partitions for Ubuntu desktop. If you are going to create more than four partition, choose the logical type.

We are going to create /home directory as the third partition mount point. So giving the extra space for the partition is better. I am not going to create a partition for /usr/local or /var directory. For a basic desktop usage, those partitions created just now is enough. So, to continue, choose the ext3 as the file system and choose /home as the mount point. Click OK to proceed.
