Re: How to refer to a Hard Drive

Hi Ken - the Linux System is indeed somewhat different from that Windows System,
but as others will tell you - - the move to a Linux System is definitely worth the effort.

Re: Create a separate partition for snapshots during Linux Mint installation ?

it would really depend on the size of the / root partition, as one would assume that the backup partition may need to be at least as big as that / root partition, and maybe plus a bit more, as well. in my experience, on MX the / root files occupied around 3500MB, but on LM the / root files occupied ...

Re: Linux Mint 19.0 64 bit "Tara" and Codeweavers CrossOver 17.5.0 32 bit

I'm using Cinnamon, but on Linux Mint 19.

Re: Installing Linux Mint 19 from ISO, please read

Yeah - - Use the Default Settings - - I'm still a bit flaky on that Level Four:
- being turned on - by default.
so I'll most likely knock out both Level 3 & 4 - untill I'm more comfortable about using either of them.

Re: Backup Tool - LM19Cinnamon

- the Timeshift program would backup the system or / root files
- the Mint Backup program would backup the user or /home files

whereas Grsync could be configured to both.

In the Login Window tool, set the background to /usr/share/backgrounds/linuxmint/default_background.jpg and disable user backgrounds.
Thanks for your reply. But I wasn't able to locate the login Window tool.
Try using Log-In Window from Menu - Administration & see if that helps you . .

Re: Can I buy an install usb that works?

Not the live USB but if he wants a persistent USB then there will be a lot of accesses to it. Unless he moves all that to the eMMC but then he could really just install it properly. that's basically what the Puppy Linux Series is doing & could also be done when running this Live Environment, - save...

Re: Difficulty in disk partition while installing

sure - in a typical partitioning system, there is often an un-used section,
and often ~4 - 8Mb in size,, but you can't actually use it - - it needs to be allocated an Partition . .

so - your 1Mb is an allocated partition :) but, on a GPT Table - - that doesn't matter, at all.

you may need to install the Gparted program, from Package Manager AKA synaptic.
No - you won't - - it's available in that Live Environment, that is your current LinuxMint Install Media.

so boot that Install Media & try out the Above Method
