-This is all very old fyi and not current or helpful; might delete it soon. Resize an .img with virt-manager, for example, expanding a 64GB disk to a 124GB disk.  Start by installing the optional tools for this:+These are two different attempts (both with 1 success each) of resizing .img files from the command line. Resize an .img with virt-manager, for example, expanding a 64GB disk to a 124GB disk.  Start by installing the optional tools for this:
      
   sudo apt install libguestfs-tools   sudo apt install libguestfs-tools

-After messing around with this, and succeeding 1 time in resizing the drive this way, I decided that just issuing ''apt install qemu-img kpartx'' and then expanding within the VM's gparted GUI was far easier.

It does require moving and/or deprecating swap (or other earlier partitions) or you cannot merge the file system. Also, check ''/etc/fstab'' and make sure that entries reflect changes.
