Re: [HOW TO] Convert Ubuntu 12.04 to Linux Mint 13

Sorry about that. The domain I had was through .tk and they cancelled it. So I'm working on getting it transferred to a new domain. Give me a few days here. I've been working some crazy hours and haven't had a day off in almost a month.

Re: Defrag tool for Mint?

As for defragging NTFS from Linux I haven't been able to find much. But with ext4 there is a program you can use. Just simple run e4defrag /location I found a good article about it as I was wondering the same thing myself. http://www.hecticgeek.com/2012/10/defragment-ext4-file-systems-using-e4defrag...

Re: [HOW TO] Convert Ubuntu 12.04 to Linux Mint 13

Wish I had a good answer for you on that one. I don't have a laptop so I don't really have a way to test it. But as I said I'm working on the comparison between packages on fresh installs. I did manage to get them all installed in a VM. Just haven't sat down to compare them all, and work up a proper...

Re: [HOW TO] Convert Ubuntu 12.04 to Linux Mint 13

Thanks karichen, Much appreciated. That rainy day might be today, minus the fact it's not raining. I think I need a break from coding all day. So I'm thinking I might do some work on getting the guide updated a little more. That will definitely help me out in my venture to make a true convert. No pr...

Re: [HOW TO] Convert Ubuntu 12.04 to Linux Mint 13

Well, not time spent in front of your computer - very little user input and active in-front-of-PC time is required installing and updating a system, at least compared to doing this. Also, there will always be Ubuntu leftovers, e.g. notifyosd, Ubuntu branding, icons, themes and stuff like that. You ...

Re: [HOW TO] Convert Ubuntu 12.04 to Linux Mint 13

Quality guide, mate, good job. I think, though, with all the work that goes into it - you're better off simply backing up your files and do a clean install om Mint 13. Yeah it definately is the easiest way. But as stated due to my complex system setup I can't use the standard install disc. I'm forc...

Re: [HOW TO] Convert Ubuntu 12.04 to Linux Mint 13

I tried to follow instructions; but ran into a problem. When you say "Click session" to choose Cinnamon session, Where do I find "Session" to click? I think my problem is MDM never installed.

Re: [HOW TO] Convert Ubuntu 12.04 to Linux Mint 13

Hey thanks much. If it helps I tested in the VM twice, and I've been running live for a month or so now. No issues. I'll post an update sometime down the road when I have a chance to compair a stock Linux Mint install with a stock Ubuntu install, so I can figure out exactly which packages come with ...

[HOW TO] Convert Ubuntu 12.04 to Linux Mint 13

As Linux Mint doesn't currently off an alternate install disk I've would it much easier and faster to convert my installation. I know some people will think I'm crazy, but it's the best option for me right now. So what were going to do is take a fresh installation of Ubuntu 12.04.1 (latest available...

Re: Installing Mint over Ubuntu without loosing all my docum

It is possible. I wrote up instructions on how to convert Ubuntu to Linux Mint.

I have to do it this way because there is no alternate install disc for Mint.

Updated tutorial today. Still have a couple things to test out.
