How to get a better KDE menu

I like the KDE desktop, but The menu is very clumsy to use. This is partly because there is no back button in the applications menu. I like the classic menu best especially since the categories pop out in a list when you hover over it; however, it looks so plain. Can anyone give me a suggestion for ...

Re: How to install with manual partitioning

The wine folder is located in home/.wine/c_drive.

Re: How to install with manual partitioning

Why make the mount point /mnt/disk2? Could I just make the mount point /data? I am somewhat new to Linux was just just curious if there was a reason for it or if it was just personal preference.

Press Ctrl+H in your file manager to see hidden folders like that. I believe your virtual C drive with programs installed is ...

What sizes would you recommend for each partition?

/
/home
/swap

P.S. space is not a concern.

(Solved) What is EFI/GPT support?

Linux Mint Debian has no No EFI/GPT support. What exactly are these in simple terms and how do these impact the basic PC user? I know that EFI is replacing the BIOS I believe.

Flagship OS

I have been reading all the recomendations to switch Mint to a Debian base rather than a Ubuntu base.
Is Linux Mint Debian Stable going to be the new flagship OS in the future?

Re: Considerations before you install

Concerning the original post, What is the difference between the /home partition and the three data partitions?

Are they the same thing as the home except the data is split out into three different partitions?
