Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I didn't knew it, so I installed it after you mentionned it and using it, I got what is on the first attachment to this post. It seems in fact to "see" only half of my Hard Drive of 1To, and it doesn't actually use it.
To illustrate my problem, in the second attachment there is what happens when I want to install something.
If you did not select to specify partitions manually when you installed Ubuntu then the second drive would not of been partitioned/formatted or mounted. Therefore it appears to be invisible to the operating system.
With 200GB of unused space on the SSD I'm not sure why the OS indicates not enough space. How big is this program?
You need to be root to use the fdisk command i.e.
sudo fdisk -l (and enter your password)
As stated you can use gparted to partition / format the 2nd drive and add an entry in the /etc/fstab file so it will automatically mount at boot up. There are lots of options. Do you want the 2nd drive for /home or just for data etc.
As you are very new to Linux, from first link just watch the video on how to create partition and format it in ext4 with gparted. Just watch first 1:40 minutes of it. Unless you want multiple partitions, just keep 1tb full - don't resize.
Second link is on how to migrate your /home. Just concentrate from 'Migrating the Home folder" part. You may need to replace /dev/sdb1 instead of /dev/sda3 in the tutorial.
My program also works. I think that the program means Go for Mo. That's the error.
Sorry for the "I know how to use sudo". Obviously I don't know all of its capabilities, but I know that when I have to modify restricted things, I have to use sudo and then put my password. That's what I wanted to tell.
