Doing it now. Thanks for that. Just same, I figured out what files I can't live without andback them up just in case something goes wrong (I do have an old 200 gig drive, just need big enough to save absolutely everything) Why am I more scared now than I nuked that bloatastic monster that calls itse...

Non-destructive installation

Currently I have Ubuntu Natty with LXDE as my desktop, but I want to replace it with LMDE (XFCE version.) I have several hundred gigs of files on the partition with Ubuntu, but lack a way to back up all of them, short of running out and buying another HDD. I guess I should put those files on separat...

Soundconverter is in the regular repositories. You might be impressed with how stable Linux is now, but it won't stay that if you continue to use Automatix.

Automatix is actively dangerous to Ubuntu systems (which includes LinuxMint,of course )

BlahBlah_X is correct. However I'd just like to had that if you go to a place like removed/ Firefox will open gdebi and install the deb package. Or if you just download it to your desktop or somewhere you can just double click to install. If your asking how to compile software, that's something else...

I jumped the gun too. The only problem that I've noticed so far is that Ubuntu didn't update my menu.lst properly. How I realized this a bit peculiar. I couldn't get to GDM. So I edited xorg.conf to use the nn driver insetad of the nvidia. Once in X, I looked to see what kernel headers were installe...

Ah, cool. I didn't know about this extension either.

Also Netscape 9 (based on Firefox) also obeys user preferences in dealing with tabs.

First you'd need to see if they are mounted. Just type "mount" in a terminal. raccoon@MintyAbomination:~$ mount /dev/hda2 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro) proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) /sys on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) varrun on /var/run type tmpfs (rw,noexec,n...

I use ext3 myself. I don't think it really matters, though. If partitions are all ext3 now, there's no compelling reason to change that.

I don't believe there is a solution. I was reading through the Fx documentation and saw that if a page specifies that a link should open a window, it WILL override your setting and open a new window instead. What was going through the developer's heads, I have no idea.

Most strange. The Computer and Home icons disappeared from the menu, which was expected (and I was thinking they'd be a way to fix that if this worked) But when I clicked those areas nothing happened at all, even though I had the values in gconf. Oh well. That thing just about doubles the amount of ...

I see. That explains why I couldn't find a repository list :lol:

Anyway, I edited that file and restart the X server and it still didn't work. So I restarted the whole machine and nothing.

This might be caused by nautilus being the default file manager. So if anything that using the file manager it automatically uses nautilus. Are you using Linux Mint XFCE CE final? No. Just regular Mint but I installed XFCE. I couldn't find a line to add to the sources.list to get proper Linux Mint ...

A strange question: Mintmenu and XFCE

I got the Minut menu to work on XFCE through the xfapplet. But When I choose "Home" or "Computer" in the menu, it Nautilus still appears and I would like Thunar. I right clicked on the menu and went into "Preferences" and gconf-editor came up. In the Mintmenu folder I found Plugins and under that pl...

Actually there is a way to do it. Add the xfapplet to your XFCE panel and it will ask what Gnome applet you want and just choose mintmenu.
