Your post indicates you used the number one rather than a lower case letter L as I suggested in my earlier post.
I don't know why you couldn't copy. What exactly happened?

xterm doesn't support right-click copy-pasting.

please use lxterminal instead.

iirc, lubuntu even has a terminal icon on the panel.
if not, the terminal (it is probably not called lxterminal) is there in the menu under accessories, utilities, system or... you will find it!
and you will notice that it looks different from xterm once you open it.
enter the command there, highlight with you cursor, right-click => copy, and paste here.

I tried again with -l (letter l) instead of 1 (nmbr 1). Got different results but still can't copy. Anyhow something came up with boot, so I wrote it out. Headings are devices - boot - start -
end - blocks - ID - system. First listing Sda1 had an "*" under "boot"...then 2048 start and a bunch of numbers under end and blocks Under ID was "83" and System was "Linux".
Subsequent listings were for Sda 2 and 5, with "boot" column blank. ID and System columns had 5 and "extended" for SDA2 and "82" "Linux swap / Solaris" for Sda5.
Further down this section was repeated with Sda 6 added and lots of big numbers -- some repeated.
Still can't boot anything.
