and run the update again.

I think the actual mount point is /media/papun/Linux Ext4

Code: Select all

sudo chown papun:papun "/media/papun/Linux Ext4"
Sorry, my bad!
Thanks for the correction!

It looks like /dev/sdb5 is the ext4-formatted partition for your backups. In that case you would need to open a terminal copy-paste and run the following command in order to change the ownership from root to your user:

Code: Select all

sudo chown papun:papun /media/papun/Linux

Hi MintyMorkyMindy, If you're hesitant to manually edit the /etc/fstab or you just prefer a GUI tool for admin tasks, let GNOME Disks take care of the editing of disk mount point options. Just make sure to test your changes before rebooting, otherwise you could find yourself in a bit of a pickle. Ho...

With your external drive hooked up, run

Code: Select all

lsblk
in a terminal to find out where your ext4 backup partition is mounted. Next:

Code: Select all

sudo chown $USER:$USER /path/to/mountpoint
Change /path/to/mountpoint/ with the actual path.

rado84 - Can you clarify whether this is intended for a 19 install or an 18.3 install?

I want 4.13.0-45 because... Maybe another option (taking the long way home) would be to boot up a live 18.3. In Synaptic, update the cache (reload-button). Search for the linux-image you want. Mark the relevant packages for install. Go to "File": Generate package download script. Run the script to ...

You might want to have a look as well at rsync/grsync for incremental backups. Rsync is by the way what Timeshift uses too, under the hood, that is.

Re: Timeshift and the Settings

Alright. Good idea to have it set up like that for having easy access and overview. My drive being crammed with several OS:es, I keep my snapshots on an ext. drive. Works alright that way also. Just have to hook it up all too often to take the snaps and hopefully not all too often to restore.

Re: Timeshift and the Settings

Cf. the Gparted view in @AZgl1500's post. He has opted to mount /dev/sda4 (his backup partition) at Backup under /home/John . I did that to allow me to view that partition in NEMO, I got it. Did you have to change ownership for the Backup folder, since Timeshift writes to that partition as root?
