Thanks to the precious tips from @GeneC and @sunewbie I managed to resize my partitions and now I am triple-booting Win7, Mint 10, and Mint 13KDE!

Re: Questions on triple boot

Thank you very much @GeneC :D

I will give Clonezilla a try.

May I ask you one more question?
Do you re-install the boot loader every time or do you keep the one you already have?
I was thinking to keep the one I currently have in Mint 10 and use that one.

Dear gurus, I currently have Win7 and Mint 10 installed on my machine. I would like now to add a 3rd Mint version (maybe 13 KDE) to run some tests and replace my beloved Mint 10 :cry: My hard drive has 3 primary partions (system + Win7 + Data) + 1 logical partition with Mint (root + /home, +swap).

So I guess we should wait before updating mintupdate.
Is this correct?

Re: Mint 13 LXDE. When?

I installed Mint Debian with XFCE on an EEEPC and then put Openbox/LXDE on top.
I have now something which resembles closely Mint 12 LXDE, but I have to admit I am not fully satisfied with the machine performance.

For some reason, 'pure' Mint LXDE performed by far better. Really missing Mint LXDE :(

Deactivate permanently bluetooth in Mint 12 RC

I would like to prevent the bluetooth service to start at startup. In previous Mint releases, it was as simple as opening the startup manager and deactivating it. In Mint 12 RC, the bluetooth entry in the startup manager is gone. How can I deactivate it? And the 2nd question which will come next: ho...

my 2 cents:
Mint LXDE is a billion times better than the currently available MATE.
Mint LXDE is fantastic desktop polished everywhere.
MATE is a collection of rough edges and it is more resource hungry.

GNOME 3 Power Consumption

According to the post below, it seems that Lisa RC consumes way too much power:

Re: Mint 12 RC - Noob's first impressions

However, I do not see the difference between MATE and GNOME3; I am running only from the liveDVD for now. Am I missing som...
