I'm quite new to Linux, having tried Ubuntu in the past, I prefer Linux Mint because it is more user friendly.
I have successfully installed a persistent installation of Linux Mint on my 4GB USB drive.
So far everything seems al right, except for one thing. An 'install' icon appears every time I boot up the OS, even after shift+deleting, it still re-appears after a reboot. Could this be deleted permanently somehow? Or alternatively, is there some start-up script that does this automatically?
I don't want to go deep into this but I think this may be the result of the somewhat "unorthodox" install you have to make to get a persistant install on a USB stick. It's probably something in /etc/init.d that makes it come back I can't test as I don't have a USB stick big enough (not to talk of no time for it )
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
