Re: ISO burn to UBS issues

Sorry for the crap ton of information, Wow. You should be sorry, that is indeed a lot of crap. I didn't see anyone asking where to shop, what to buy, or whether or not they should dual boot. Did you even read the question before spewing off at the keyboard? The question was; how to check the ISO on...

Re: Computer Died (Rant Alert)

That's tough luck about the computer, but all electronic gadgets die eventually. I'm surprised you didn't have a backup of the passwords. I thought you were keen on backups. Yeah, but on such an expensive computer after only 10-11 months? I still haven't heard back from System 76. I did have a back...

Re: Granny's here now . . .

New to Linux, although I've been threatening to switch from Windows ever since W10 was released. I'm over 70 years young and enjoy 'tech', but despise W10.

Re: Ready to get away from dual boot. What's the best approach?

Re: [Solved] Where's the Trash Can, (Trash Folder, Trash Directory, Rubbish Bin)?

Where's the Trash Folder in Mint? (Like the Recycle Bin in Windows?) I found two answers. 1) If it's not on your Desktop, you can put it there: Menu > System Settings > Desktop > change the Trash setting from Off to On. Or, if you don't like icons on your desktop, 2) Menu > Files > Go > Trash. Open...

Re: New-to-Linux my recommendations/tips

foxclone and cloning in general is not suitable for new users It's hard to argue with that. But I would encourage them to do it later on. It's comforting to know you can restore your OS even if a Timeshift is not available, or if Timeshift ever fails. I take an image about every 2 months, and clear...
