Re: BrucesWay Revised

It has been like wading through treacle but I'm back with a complete re-write of MintToolkit creation. In this era of the decline and fall of UKplc that's aided by Disbelief and Denial it's well-nigh impossible to get this FREE information taken seriously. If I were to charge £250-£1000 for it, it w...

Re: BrucesWay Revised

Profuse apologies to everyone. In writing a User Guide I have completely trashed my PC and am first recreating a USB device to aid a complete re-build and have become aware of some mistakes like failing to invoke proprietary codecs. It will take a couple of weeks but I shall return with amended file...

Re: BrucesWay Revised

Sorry again but I should have added that whilst a 16GB device is large enough to be a powerful troubleshooting tool complete with a PortableApps suite etc for use by Windows, merely needing hostPC access, a 64GB device can house my entire music collection re-encoded as high quality 160Kbps VBR2 MP3s...

Re: BrucesWay Revised

Sorry for the delay. The standard method merely install to a single partition. Mine installs as a Live USB plus a data partition that also be used by Windows. After all that work it can be replicated with Clonezila with the actual Owner and Password changed with Users&Groups promptly allowing us...

Re: BrucesWay Revised

It looks like there are no Mint expert takers for what's been rejected, presumably preferring larger devices that have been banned from air travel, so I will simply have to find another way 'to spread the word'. Meanwhile apologies for a couple of amendments. To paragraph 9 please add 'Edit /etc/def...

BrucesWay Revised

Well Here it is, the Revised Version of BrucesWay Installation which will probably get lost in the chaos of other Tutorials. Conforming to Forum Restrictions it is intended for Mint expert use in providing newbie/novices with a Ready-to-Use copy of pre-installed and configured LinuxMintSonyaMATE64 o...

BrucesWay Installation

For decades I have been using a different way to evaluate new versions of LinuxMint and provide Ready-to-Use installations on USBkeys.
I am now struggling to generate a PDF file small enough to pass on no strings attached instructions

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

As the only ‘Blog’ on the Web that’s likely to be heeded by its small development team, I guess that it’s hardly surprising that it has attracted so many new forum users with long pent-up frustrations like the small group who have always wanted Linux Mint to take a KDE desktop approach. Their views ...

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

As Posted in the earlier vote, although continuing to use Mint9 Isadora, I have found that LMDE's MATE is better than Cinnamon for me, providing bottom Panel Added mini-apps, particularly the always displayed Workspace Switcher that allows me to run 'before and after' instances of Writer or FireFox ...

Versatile Lisa USBkey Creation 'HowTo'

Over the decades I have learned that a firm foundation is essential for hardware or software and LinuxMint12RC is no exception when it comes to Creating a Dual-Function, Persistent USBkey. Based on the use of 32-bit Gloria's Gparted to prepare the USBkey and the use of 32-bit Isadora's Startup Disk ...
