Unfortunately, I am unfamiliar with your particular issue...so I don't
know how much assistance I can be, other than the below note:

If you used a guided install method, then a swap partition was made for
you... and no, it would not show up under computer:///
and actually...you don't _need_ a separate partition... you can also
make a swap file if you need to.
please check the contents of the file "/etc/fstab" to see what you do
have already, which may be of some more help to others. To do this, run
the following command
If you're unsure, you can just paste the contents here, so somebody who
understands better can have a look. If it turns out that you do indeed
need swap, I can probably walk you through the process, or find a nice
tutorial for you.
Hope that helps!
