These are hidden folders which are only visible in your file manager when you enable "View Hidden Files"I have Noticed one change in my home folder. Now there are some new folders like ".adobe", ".cache", ".cinnamon",etc., and files like ".profile",".bash_logout",".xsession-errors", ".gscan2pdf" etc.
Have you got "backports" enabled in synaptic?
I made that mistake and ended up doing a clean re-install to get Mate 1.4 back.
I would not hesitate to install Mint 16 and forget about Mint 13.
My own experience was that I installed Mint 16 on a trial basis, and found that I liked it so much that I could not go back to Mint 13. That was even though I had Mint 13 configured just the way I wanted it - like you did.
ome of these indicate possibly failing hard drive. The item about "E" indicates you're using Windows on the PC as well --since Linux filesystems have no concept of "drive letters" that are used in Windows. You need to confirm this.
