SOLVED: Fresh install of LM 18.2 made secondary HDD unmountable

Hi all! A couple of weeks ago I bought a new laptop with a fast but small SSD. I also ordered a HDD-caddy so I could replace the DVD-drive with the old, slow but large HDD from the previous laptop, to use as my /home partition.

SOLVED: How to delete LVM partitions in old HDD to be used as /home

I've got a new laptop with a small but fast SSD which is superb for my root partition, but way to small for my /home partition. The old laptop was therefore cannibalized for (among other things and most importantly) its large HDD, to be used as /home partition in parallel with the built in SSD as ro...

Re: Problem installing anything on Mint 15 KDE

Ah, ok. It would seem after all that KDE uses another way of managing the repositories. Then I suggest you use synaptic to remove medibuntu and add vlc.

Re: Problem installing anything on Mint 15 KDE

Hm, that really sounds strange... :? But if I understand You correctly; now everything works as You intend it to do, and on KDE as is Your wish? So the only problem right now is that you get the same error messages as previously? I believe I know how to remedy this. It should still be a problem in t...

Re: Problem installing anything on Mint 15 KDE

Hi dcora87 I don't use KDE, but perhaps I can help anyway, the resources behind the interface is the same after all. I too had to uninstall medibuntu to get rid of that pesky string of error messages. :P If You would be so kind as to tell me what You have tried so far? Did You just copy/paste the co...
