It only saves a...

Re: Is Ubuntu changing the boot order for grub?

It was the 1st time I have seen the "mint" entry change to Ubuntu. Its also the 1st time that I have seen a distro change the list order that the "default" distro is to boot into without me specifically installing grub to the MBR or, in this case, the bios-grub partition from a p...

Is Ubuntu changing the boot order for grub? (solved)

Re: How to confirm that correct graphic drivers are installe

If you are happy with your graphics, I would just leave it. AMD can drop linux support for radeon cards so even if there is a driver available from AMD , and you install it, AMD may drop support and you will have to revert to the open source driver anyway. Happened to me (Radeon 4390HD) and it was a...

I can access other drives or partitions simply by using a live CD. If I get a permission error, I just do sudo nautilus/dolphin/caja, whatever.

Re: OpenOffice

you are giving WAY too little information

Anyway, the best solution... open synaptic and search for openoffice.org, although I dont see why you need it as I assume libre office is pre-installed

Re: Linux MInt 13 Update Manager not working in KDE

In the meantime you can use sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade in the console.

You could also, in synaptics, try uninstall mintupdate , update manager core and whatever other update manager is installed (i have the KDE version also...an then reinstall them via synaptics

Re: Backup and restore whole OS [SOLVED]

as I said here...
this will restore your install exactly as it is now (as long as the new partition size is big enough for your data needs, which I assume you will make it)

Re: No internet with Live CD!

Thats a pain in the ass if if doesnt continue with the install without net access.
You should be able to set up net access with the live cd before installing.
How do you access the internet? mobile broadband dongle? wired?
