This is a common issue when e-mailing or uploading video files.
One note is that you should make the filesize you choose below about 20% smaller than you need. For example I took a 219MB video and told it to be 20M. The resulting file was still about 21.9M but it was OK when I said 18M and was barely below the 20M size.
ffmpeg is our friend here, just use this command:
Change the -fs 100Mto the size you want eg. 20M, 500M
This is caused because the user is running as qemu for virt-resize and if qemu does not have privileges to read from the source and write to the destination, it will fail with the below. So either change the uid of qemu or change the ownership of the source and target.
virt-resize --expand /dev/sda2 /root/kvmtemplates/windows2019-eval-template.img /root/kvmguests/kvmkvmuser4515........
If you can print other PDFs but not a particular one it is very likely that the PDF size is A4 (the longer, skinnier Asian paper size) instead of the North American letter size ( 8.5" x 11"). This breaks printing in most cases. Or it may print if you find a program that ignores the size issue.
Here is an example of an A4 being rejected by a printer in Ubuntu Linux via CUPS

Do you hate how Centos 7 defaults to allocating most of your valuable space to /home even though it is a production server?
Here is a quick guide on how to take back that space live, while online (of course make sure you have backups just in case something goes wrong!):

It could just be my specific Java but other KVM/IP works ok on my machine but with Supermicro's IPMI for some reason the console window doesn't resize and even putting it in full screen leaves the window cut off as shown below:
As you can see above the screen is cut off you can't see the "Iagree" on the right side.

The Correct Way To Resize In Place
qemu-img resize kvmuserwindows2008dcetest.img +1G
Below is a common mistake that some users make they are trying to specify a new image name but it can be resized in place (just make sure the VMis NOT running and you've backed up the data in case something goes wrong).
qemu-img resize kvmuser453111.img kvmuser453111-larger.img +5G
convert "file.TIF" "resize.jpg"
convert.im6: Unknown field with tag 317 (0x13d) encountered. `TIFFReadDirectory' @ warning/tiff.c/TIFFWarnings/788.

I've never seen this before in all of my years. Ihave some very old CDs and DVDs 12-15 years old that seem not to work in this BD-R/DVD-R/CD-R Asus drive.
The discs are fine actually and ironically they even work fine on a normal LG USB based BD-R drive!

If the file size is too large you need to resize them on the fly:
convert -resize 25% *.jpg output.pdf
The resize flag takes a % I have tried without and it seems to take it as pixels and becomes way too small.
You can also play with the "-quality 25" flag to decrease file size even more.........
libguestfs tools howto guide for managing virtual machine images.
libguestfs-tools aka guestfs tools has a lot of tools that make this very easy for you. You can easily mount partitons from an image with some of the commands below.
To mount a partition
#mount the kvmuser102821.img image and the /dev/sda1 partition from it to the local directory "mount"
guestmount -a kvmuser102821.img -m /dev/sda1 mount
# first we need a physical volume which we use the pvcreate tool to create
# I create mine on /dev/sdb3

Physical volume "/dev/sdb3" successfully created
# pvdisplay shows the newly created volume
"/dev/sdb3" is a new physical volume of "1.35 TiB"

The best way I could figure out is to use another guest of some sort to do this, while assigning the disk that needs to be resized to the same guest.
So say we have /dev/xvda as the guests drive and we've booted it up.
We also have /dev/xvdb (this is going to be the image/disk to be resized).
In this case it's based on an ext3/4 image.
Run e2fsck on it to ensure there are no filesystem errors.
VBoxManage modifyhd XP.vdi --resize 15000
VBoxManage modifyhd XP.vdi --resize 15000
That resizes the virtual hard drive image "XP.vdi" to 15000MB instantly.
I doubt this is safe to do while the VM is running and I'm not sure if it would attempt it still but turn the VM off first to be safe.
I also notice in the VBOX GUI that it still shows the orig........

My only wish is that you could also convert the image type from say tiff to jpg etc...
This is an awesome/handy/feature and great tool to have. This is one way where GNOME/Nautilus excel, the possibilities are endless to simplify and make simple/mundane tasks quicker and more efficient than ever.........
I thought it was a GNOME problem because no matter what styles I applied Nautilus wouldn't change, but it was only Nautilus that wouldn't change/update anymore so I should have known.
The only fix/solutionI knew of other than rebooting is the following:
sudo killall nautilus
I tried closing all instances of nautilus that were visible and it had no effect.
And another thing to remember is that only will appearances/styles/themes not apply to N........
I have no idea why but mkfs.ext3 defaults to a patheticlly small blocksize of 1024 bytes/1KB (kilobyte). That means the maximum filesize is ONLY 16GB! With 2KB/2048 bytes you get a 256 GB maximum filesize, and with 4KB/4096 bytes you get 2TB!
I finally noticed/paid attention to this after realizing that with rsync and scp that no file larger than 17GB could be transferred. I then realized it must be a file size limit on the partition.
Here is what tune2fs tol........
I'm really starting to love ImageMagick, I've used it to mass convert/resize family photos with scripts and all kinds of handy things.
Today I just learned that you can create PDF files with it too, say if you have images scanned or anything else it's very simple:
convert *.jpeg output.pdf
You can replace jpg with whatever format your files are in. One thing to remember is that you can specify the order that the images/pages are added to the PDF manu........
