Re: Home contents on desktop problem

Thank you gm10, the first code worked!
I guess I have lost the files that were on my desktop before this happened.
Do you know what may have caused this in the first place?

Re: Extending root partition

Thank you gm10, and to all of your replies! I no longer have to resize things at the moment as I have taken the advice of examining root and removing unneeded files. I have around 3GB space in there now and I am continuing to look for more. When I do decide to extend root I know how to go about it n...

[SOLVED] Extending root partition

Hi there, I have looked around the Internet for answers to this query but I am still not entirely confident about what I think I should do here. As you can see the space on root is getting low and I wish to increase it. Is it simply a matter of booting to the live disk, opening Gparted, and dragging...

Re: Good youtube videos? or bloggers?

BigDaddyLinux is quite good too, he hosts live shows as well where he has a group of guests from all over the place, it is quite entertaining.
I also like Tom on Switched to Linux.

Re: Kids can't use computers

I am 59, my daughters, who are in their 20's, come to me with "dad, Netflix won't load", "my laptop is really slow!", "HEEEELP!!!"
I compare it to cars. A lot of people drive cars but have no idea what may be wrong when it suddenly won't start.
