Re: Custom Timeshift for Document Backup

Re: Custom Timeshift for Document Backup

Timeshift is a system snapshot I think I get it. Timeshift keeps a backup of my system configurations, which can be restored if something borks between now and some future update, not necessarily the content of my system (eg. documents). I'll look into backup programs, and in the meantime be more d...

Re: Linux kernel?

If I may peacefully hijack this thread for a moment... This is my first time to see a Kernel update (new to Mint!) so I'm wondering if I should go right on ahead and update it? Is it something that is urgent to be done? And if I have problems, I just revert to the old Kernel as per the advice with G...

Re: [SOLVED] Questions on Cache

This is now solved! I decided to go with a full clean install after liking what I experienced on the USB drive, so partition didn't really matter. Got Chrome and all is working fine. I decided to actually record (in code) my usual haunts and passwords so I have a useful paper backup for all that now...

Here is a random "how to" from Google for that... https://www.debugpoint.com/2019/10/how-to-create-persistent-usb-ubuntu-linux-mint/ But, there is a very comprehensive guide o...

[SOLVED] Questions on Cache

So I've literally just dipped my toes into this Minty water and so far its 1,000,000% better than that bloatware windows crap. My computer's (re)boot time has reduced from 8 minutes to 30 seconds. The only things prohibiting me making a full switch to 100% Mint installation (as opposed to using just...

What an exciting journey!

G'day mates! I'm JP from Sydney. Well I must say that this introduction serves to prove that a complete and utter n00b like myself can even figure this out. I have no experience in Linux, coding, programming or anything to do with computing except being a 20+ years a point and click Windows thrall. ...
