Re: Creating perfect 1 to 1 image possible?

You need to identify the correct location of the mounted backup device

It can vary

Re: Connected to router but no internet

So this old Mac has worked in your old place
It's connected to the router in this new place - but no internet.

It's odd

Hopefully someone has an idea, I'm not sure. And I have to sleep now

Re: Creating perfect 1 to 1 image possible?

dd does create a bit for bit exact copy

I would probably have used ddrescue
it would start like this:

ionice -c3 ddrescue /dev/sda

But you should be fine

Re: Linux Mint 19.3 xfce no reconoce ubs wifi TP-LINK WN725N

I'd buy yourself another USB device that works.
There are plenty of stores selling Raspberry PI stuff. And all their USB Wifi will work in Linux. Just around $5

Re: Connected to router but no internet

Is this your only device that you have that is connecting to this shared network?
In other words, can say for example that your phone is connected to it and that is fine?

Re: How to mount cdrom or dvd?

Support for CD and DVD drives is mostly flawless in my experience.
Having said that I use them less and less. Actually can't recall when I last did, so it's most likely years ago.
You can repair fstab from a live session FYI

But can we ask, how did you install Mint? Via a USB stick or DVD?

Re: How to mount cdrom or dvd?

I'm not sure I understand.
Typically a cd or dvd will just mount. It does so under /dev/sr0

It's certainly not normal to add it to fstab

Re: USB Stick formatting fdisk

Use fdisk from a terminal Typically, you would simply start fdisk: remember it's all sudo Identify your device with fdisk -l And replace the X below eg: the USB might likely be sdb. Be sure to get this right fdisk /dev/sdX and select: o create a new empty DOS partition table and then: n add a new pa...

Re: Firefox - Changing Hidden Mozilla Folder Name

I use a few different FF users under one session login
When I move from one to the other, I rename say my personal .mozilla as .mozilla_me
And then rename my wife currently renamed .mozilla_wife to .mozilla
Bit fiddly, but I seldom have to do it. And it works flawlessly.

Re: Cannot Write to USB Drive

Is there a locking device built in to the USB? It's usually a very small inconspicuous toggle

You could zero the device with dd
But be careful

Re: Desktop vs Home folder

Actually the use of the 'Desktop' as was traditional in windows is a poor choice and it's not one I would recommend
But you can use it as you describe

There is a backup tool in Mint, but I have no experience of it's use
My guess is it will be good or they wouldn't put it there.

Re: partition for docs so they survive system crash/reinstall?

If you create a /home partition (I do this) then it need never be formatted really. At least in my case, I have had no need to for years now and even if you start a new installation you would simply set the mount point and not format it. I use ext4 still Never ever had an issue Creating an additiona...

Maria I'm not sure why you started another thread on this matter, but you will be getting in a mess IMO with so many conflicting ideas. I'm not saying they are wrong, as it is possible to do things in many different ways. But you didn't explain that you already had the wine builds PPA Installing win...

Re: installed 'wtlib2016' from a dvd but it keeps crashing!!

Sometimes its worth testing a new .wine and re-installing I usually just rename the existing .wine to something like .~wine Then run the WTLIB install again If it works you can eventually delete the old folder you renamed You can also ask here for help https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sCla...
