Find out the installation path in Ubuntu

Having difficulty in shrinking your partition???

Want to install Linux in your windows system and finding it difficult to create a partition from your main partition??

Is shrinking not working (not giving enough space for new partition) even though your primary partition is having enough disk space left??

Is windows de-fragmenting utility not working on your system???
