Re: how to create ISO of my system ?

Hi jarp53, The backup tool, Relax & Recover, mentioned in my last post, did not have a GUI, whereas this one, Refracta, mentioned below, has a GUI. "These tools will work on most Debian or Devuan-based systems. Refracta is based on Devuan GNU/Linux. Everything installed in Refracta is free and open-...

Re: how to create ISO of my system ?

Hi jarp53, This looks like what you want (and maybe even more).

Re: how to create ISO of my system ?

Hi jarp53, With the default Disks (gnome-disk-utility) application, I was able to make an image (.IMG) of my partition and also able to write it (IMG/ISO) to a flash disk. (OTT, Disks is also a good partition manager) And as per the below passage, the .IMG file can be simply renamed to .ISO, if it i...

Re: How to prevent a program from taking Thunar's place?

I've also noticed this happening in my friend's system with Ubuntu. For him, after installing Easytag, when he tries to open the file manager from the menu, Easytag opens up.

Re: Speed optimizations?

Your system is just fine for running XFCE (Mint 5) except for that harddisk. BTW, did you say 2GB or 20GB? My system is a PIII 533MHz & 192MB RAM m/c with a 4GB partition for Mint 5 XFCE. I've have a 40GB HDD which works perfect with my system. The default install of Mint 5 XFCE takes around 2.2GB s...

Re: Linux Mint 5 Elyssa XFCE CE RC1 (BETA 025) is out!

Hi all,

I have been using GNU/Linux Mint 5 XFCE for around a month now. It has been a wonderful experience living with it. 8)

Just wanted to share this to acknowledge, appreciate & admire the GNU / Linux / Xorg / GTK / XFCE and of course the Mint developers. :D
