Here is my round up feedback re: installing Mint 14. I continuenly had problems with password acceptance, no matter what I tried to clearup. So, I decided to just install it again.
I did not want to foul up my other window OS. I installed another Mint OS along with the rest of previous OS. I got several installer crashes while installing before I used a different cinnimon OS image. I also used automatic login. I then went back later and use grub2 to remove some of the other remaining Mints from the grub start up list. Of course, I had to use Boot Repair to correct the boot loading errors. On the grub boot list, I saw one Mint 14 listing (with advance options) What does this one do? There are basic set up features that should be part of the initial installation setup needs, like Font display reading size.(should be larger). I also found my picture and document files had been loaded in a ruthless maze. For instance if you select either, the pictures/documents, neihter show up (just empty space). I remembered during installation, a error indicated file loading problems. When I started to search for my pictures/docs files, I saw lots of files listing that did not make sense. What is this Recycler vs the trash can? what is the virtual files like 45 gb, 13gb with entries? The Download files area were unreconizable. Also before I forget, what is wrong with login to LinuxMint site. I can log in with no problems using my ubuntu net-laptop, but I had crazy problems loging in using my Mint desktop, even using different browsers. I have no problems when I log into my other Mint ( login required) OS. I have tried many times to confirm registration entering username/email address and mint site says they do not exist. I then had to re-register again. Now I can log in (shows logout) but can not go to my post, like before no matter how I try, I can't get to the same location for post searching or posting. Also I have tried to use the Backup Tool that came with Mint 14. I followed the directions but when I give it the hard drive and folder to use, it says completed/finished. I then go to the backup location but find nothing has been saved there. I did it again with just designating the hard drive. and it displays done/finish. But I could not find the name of the file where it saved it to the hard drive, nor where it placed it, to verify its contents?? As of today, I'm able to use Mint successfully. Please reply on my questions. Thanks
