Re: (Solved) How to delete/uninstall thonny

For information to all.
Placing the program on a bigger screen I zoomed out the thonny program window.
Far most up to right there was a clickable text, that gave back the normal menubar.
Thanks for that! :)
Problem solved.

Re: Security, advantages to use several accounts

May a "beginner" like me tell a hint?
"same IP all the time"?
Shut of the router for 15 minutes and you will get a new IP adress from the Internet provider next time you power on the router.

Re: Move /home from /sda1 to /sda2

Before I make a new trial, shall I move
from /home/myname/myfiles
to /home/myfiles?
Are there any files in the /home the Grub picks up from the home for logging in?
Thanks.

Sorry. No. I was tired and had to work with other things. But I will do and test again. Please wait some day. I can not understand how that will enable typing in my password so I can log in. The keyboard doesn't take any input. By the way, the Caja filebrowser has the option to open file as root/Adm...

Re: Move /home from /sda1 to /sda2

Hallo...again.
:) I did it again. :)
And changed back and everything is okey.

Same result, could'nt log in.
So.....there must be something wrong with the login since it doesn't take any input from the keyboard.
I think there must be more files need to edit.
Suggestions?
Buffy?
Anyone?

Re: Move /home from /sda1 to /sda2

Oh, silly me..a thought hit me.... :idea:
Shall I creat the /home katalog on this /sda3; copy files; and when the fstab after the restart recognises the new UUID number it will automatically pick up the new catalog /home and use it as home direct?
Is it sooo..... simple? :roll:
