Re: Web History

What's your browser? Mine (Waterfox) has a feature called 'Import and Backup'. I bet Firefox has that, too.

How can I just turn the track pad off?
You have not told us your desktop environment, so this is a shot in the dark: try the settings under Mouse and Touchpad.

This is an old thread, so I'll lock it now. If you have further questions, please start a new thread. Cheers!

Re: USB stick removed too early

Choose first option if you want to dual boot windows and linux mint and second option if you want to remove your windows os and just want linux.

Re: USB stick removed too early

Something else, yes. And then choose your previous Mint partition(s).

If you are wondering what is what, open GParted from the live Mint, and take a screenshot to show us so we can see what you are seeing.

Re: rename selected files

You can also do the same in the file manager in image viewers like Pix or XnView. What makes it cumbersome is it will be a one-at-a-time operation. It doesn't have to be. Like I said, XnView is great at batch conversions. It's much more than an image viewer. I suggest you avoid using spaces in the ...

Try XNview MP. Great for batch operations on images, including renaming.

I think you should first format the partition and then install linux mint on it instead of just overwriting it.
The installer will do that for you if you let it.

Re: Installing from Live DVD

I don't think that it does, apart from the 'teething troubles' that are common with a new release and often repaired in x.1 or x.2... but of course, it's up to you. 18.3 is indeed very nice.
