Re: Share files between linux desktop and linux laptop

May I ask you you aren't using the file sharing system built into Cinnamon? Thanks for the advice. It sounds more involved than I would have come up with on my own. I may give it a try. I am always willing to learn more useful things about these computer things. My knowlege is lacking in many areas...

Re: Share files between linux desktop and linux laptop

Why not instaling Copy.com or Dropbox on both systems? If you upload your files to a cloud storage server and install the client on both systems, the advantage you have is that your files are stored on 1 location and accessible from multiple locations. And any file you modify/edit on 1 system will ...

Re: third page of install shows no drives or partitions

Didn't look close enough at the results. My bad. Pretty sure that I used Gparted to do the partitioning. I have been thinking... Kinda dangerous for me. I have been using Rufus when in Win 7 to create USB drives from isos and been using the partition scheme MBR. I am trying it again using GPT partit...

Re: third page of install shows no drives or partitions

I see that the partition table is mac. Does this mean that I need to re-install everything with a different partition table?
If so, how do I define which partition table to use and which is the best to use for multiboot?
I would like to keep Win 7 as well as Linux.

Re: third page of install shows no drives or partitions

Did you remove Windows or is it a dual/triple boot? You might have to boot into Windows and turn off "Fast Boot" Do you have GPT partitioning? No, I didn't remove Windows. I am not familiar with 'Fast Boot'. I will try to get information and check this out. Not sure what GPT partitioning ...

date font size in task bar

Mint KDE 13 32 bit.
Figured out how to change font color for clock and then added the date below the time. However, the date font is a lot smaller than the time. Is there a way to increase the font size of the date?

Re: how to use storage device manager

I apparently haven/t been clear in my question.

What can I do with Storage Device Manager? Or is there documentation somewhere about how to use SDM? Just curious. Not an earth shaking problem.
