How do I add more swap memory in ubuntu?

You entered the wrong swap size no problem I'll show you how to increase your swap
I will create a 512Mb swap file:
Enter in bash this line:

1. sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/512Mb.swap bs=1M count=512
2. sudo mkswap /mnt/512Mb.swap
3. sudo swapon /mnt/512Mb.swap
4. gksudo gedit /etc/fstab
add this line in the fstab file you just launched:
/mnt/512Mb.swap none swap sw 0 0
