Re: Question About moving software to new OS

Horse, I would backup everything with FoxClone, as prescribed by Andy [he posted in your thread]. For under $70 bucks, you can purchase a 2TB USB HDD from Western Digital, with a 2 year warranty. https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=WD+2TB+Elements+Portable+Hard+Drive+USB+3.0+Model+WDBU6Y0020BBK-WESN Than...

Re: Question About moving software to new OS

You can use mint's backup tool to backup the system (software selection), but it's limited. It will only restore applications you have installed from software manager. Backing up and restoring /home or if you have a separate /home partition means you can keep all your config files. I think I might ...

Re: Question About moving software to new OS

Moving personal pics and video is easy, just use a backup drive. I wouldn't do that with software though, you will tend to need newer versions for the new release due to the general lack of backwards compatibility in Linux. I just reinstall them after the clean reinstall. Thank you, i think that's ...

Re: Question About moving software to new OS

Thank you for the information. I've read where doing a standing upgrade from 19.3 to 20.1 will not work well. As a matter of fact, I don't even get the option for an upgrade in my 'update manager' edit column. I don't mind doing a fresh install, I just hate doing all the work of reinstalling all the...

I currently have Mint Cinnamon 19.3 and would like to do a fresh install to 20.1 The question I have is, can I do a backup on my current 19.3 software installs and move them over to 20.1 ? Also, would this be easier with a USB stick, or should I look into getting an external HD ? If so, which extern...

Only Ebay Times Out (It fixed itself)

This probably has nothing to do with Linux Mint, however I'm at a loss. I Have 6 computers , 3 PCs (eathernet cable) , and 3 laptops (WIFI connected) , all with Mint 19.3 All updated the same. All of a sudden 5 days ago I was unable to get on my Ebay with 5 of the computers. The one notebook had no ...

Re: Set user interface scaling wrong

OK, typed in system settings and got to the display page. The setting is now at normal again, but the menu screen is still mostly off screen, like it's to big.

Your desktop environment would be a start. ;)

Re: Set user interface scaling wrong

None of that works for being able to drag anything. Holding the alt key and using the mouse or pressing alt and the space bar does nothing.
I saw this in another thread, but for some reason it doesn't work here.

Re: Could not install the security updates

I'm having the same problem, but only on 2 of my Mint 19.2 computers. The rest don't seem to have this problem. Has anyone come up with an answer. is it hardware, or installed software like Skype? I did recently sign up to Stream Yard, but that's on only one computer and it seems to be only in Firef...

Re: Need H.264 decoder

Well, I found another way to do this, it's not the best way, but it works. The camera opens up 2 options, PMHOME and Removable Disk. Choose Removable Disk and open, PRIVATE/AVCHD/BDMV/STREAM/ directory. Then drop that into Openshot or kdenlive and export to save to a file. This takes a bit of time t...
