First time I've seen all 4 options explainedMint_BackupRestore wrote:I always have two partitions on my hard-drive which are formatted with EXT4. On one I keep my old Linux (e.g. 14) and on the second one the next version (e.g. 15). When version 16 comes out I then overwrite version 14 and so on. This way I have an additional backup and can always jump back one version
b.) You can make a backup of your old Linux version by using Clonezilla (http://www.clonezilla.org)
The command tar -upvf just tells tar to add the “Installed_Programs” folder to the archive (the u option means update, the p option means preserve all users and owners, the v option stands for verbose output, the f option tells tar that it should use the “$destination$version$Date$ArchiveFormat” as filename to store the tar archive).

into the terminal.

Mint_BackupRestore wrote:Could you please explain to me the exact steps you did when changing the default fonts (e.g., downloaded font from http://, then copied the font to folder XYZ, then changed settings in Libreoffice to 123). Then I can check the script is restore that or not.

Mint_BackupRestore wrote:Note that Openoffice is no longer being developed, thus the migration to Libreoffice might make sense.
Mint_BackupRestore wrote:If it is really disabled in in Quiana, then I would do the following: 1.) Install and update all packages using the Quiana repositories as far as possible. Then restore your old “sources.list” file by hand (just doubleclick on the *.tar.7zip archive and look for the file). Put that file into your /etc/apt/ directory. And install that one package using “apt install packagename”. Then of coure restore the sources.list to Quiana.
Mint_BackupRestore wrote:If you have spare time it would be great if you can make three partitions. In partition 1 you install an old Mint version and in partition 2 you install a new version. Then you make images of both operating systems using Clonezilla (http://www.clonezilla.org) on partition 3.
I did no file management operations at all, I simply changed default font settings within the Office software.
Last time I used apt-get remove from the terminal. Would it be better to include --purge as well?
That's news to me. Apache only just released 4.1 at the end of April 2014. Where did you read that?
What partition sizes would be needed? I'm a bit short of space to shrink much more. Also what sort of partition, not all primary I hope? Also got a big issue with my formerly bootable USB disk. Needs a total reformat and repopulating with ISOs. Would you recommend unetbootin? Haven't used that before
