Re: GRUB is overwrought

So I guess what I really want is a simple explanation of how grub decides what to boot. You might have missed the simple explanation that Flemur provided. Reinstalling Grub offers no assurance that it will fix the problem. sudo grub-install /dev/sda ...doesn't reinstall the grub package; it install...

Re: The Best Way To Step Up To 18.1? [SOLVED]

You should automount your /data partition with a line in your /etc/fstab.
Instructions for that are in the tutorial link I posted earlier :arrow: HOWTO: Create & Use a Separate DATA Partition

Re: The Best Way To Step Up To 18.1?

So if /dev/sda failed before I got an operating version of Mint on /dev/sdb, I'd have to use the bios boot menu until I could get things fixed. No. The BIOS boot menu would do you no good, because you would have no functional Grub. You would have to install an OS to the remaining hard drive, and in...

Re: The Best Way To Step Up To 18.1?

That will work - until /dev/sda fails.
Then you won't be able to boot from sdb because doing it that way will make the Grub on sdb controlled by the OS on sda. If sda fails, you have no boot menu at all.
Grub has to access the /boot/grub/grub.cfg file to build the menu. If that is gone... no menu.

Re: The Best Way To Step Up To 18.1?

how do I install Grub to sdb instead of sda? Here I am talking about when you are installing 18.1 to /dev/sdb - you would install Grub to /dev/sdb as part of the installation process. UPDATE: I think this is the command: sudo grub-install /dev/sdb Do I need to remove it from /dev/sda first or is th...

Re: Cinnamon.css Active Window help

Those .svg images are in the metacity-1 folder. To change the color of a .svg image, install inkscape. sudo apt-get install inkscape Open the image in the inkscape program and change the color. Or, you can just steal other .svg images from a different metacity theme, if you find the color you want. ...

I have never used binding, personally, so I am not good with the details. I simply open the Photos folder in the file manager and create a Bookmark. That is good enough for me. Or, you can open a dual-pane view in your file manager, (View menu > Extra Pane). Open your /home/yourusername folder in on...
