After all 'parted' and 'fdisk' are seeing increasing sda2-Debian and sda3-swap, but graphical file manager 'Thunar' don't seeing increasing sda2-Debian (i.e. its status-bar expose Free space: 733,9 MB) the size was before all changes .Besides this in the booting time are doing the check of disk, duration is 2 min.If I execute:

I guess you have to tell your file system that
it can make use of that extra space. That's what
"resize2fs" is for (NOTE: I've assumed you have
an ext4 file system on sda2-Debian: otherwise
you'll need another command).

It will default to your (new) partition size, so
just giving it the device name should work.

Back up your valuable data first!
