I am planning on upgrading from mint 8 "Helena" to mint 10 once it comes out. However, I have the appearance and behavior of my computer just how I like it on Helena, and was wondering if there was an easy way to keep all of those settings. I have a seperate /home partition, so I was thinking I could just tell the installer to use that partition as home? Are there any problems I would run into doing that (besides having to install a whole bunch of programs right off the bat)? Is there any way I could test it out in the live cd session (mounting the home partition and editing some magical files?)
Thanks for the help!
