Fresh Install?

Postby andrewe on Mon Apr 21, 2008 5:13 pm

Hey all,

I've been using Linux Mint for around 2 months, and it's been quite satisfying. What's the quickest way to reinstall Linux Mint? I feel like I've toyed around with it too much and i want to start fresh. I'm dual booting with Vista and I want to wipe the Linux partition clean and extend it from 20GB to around 40-50GB..

And also, I've been having trouble with the Appearance options.. i set it to normal and after a reboot, some of the effects don't work (e.g. hovering over the left and right corners for those neat overviews).. is there anyway to have those settings saved?

Thanks in advance!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

andrewe,

I would refer you to my post in the below thread.

viewtopic.php?f=90&t=11672

Also, if you would like to do some reading describing some of your options and a few basics, look in the thread below. There is some commentary and links that will probably give you more information than you really wanted. :-)

Thanks a bunch,

I've created a new partition for just my data, so that when elyssa releases i'll just reinstall the os.

But! My second problem still persists (even after a fresh install). Appearances doesn't seem to completely save my preferences (transparency on window title bars work, but again the hovering over the left and right corners don't). It's just a nuisance having to go into appearances every time I reboot...
