Re: Backup Tool

I realize I'm not answering your original question, but I'm just pointing out if you don't need to reinstall, you can simply create /home partition and transfer your files without a backup on the fly.

Re: Backup Tool

I'd just like to add you can create and transfer /home to a new /home partition using a LiveCD.

A quick google search "ubuntu create new /home partition" should give some tutorials. For instance -> http://www.maketecheasier.com/move-home-folder-ubuntu/

No, it shouldn't. The package just contains 32-bit libraries for compatibility.

Re: Making Mate look like Gnome 2?

MATE is a fork of GNOME2, so yes, the default appearance of MATE would appear to look, and function like GNOME2.

Re: Prevent Banshee from appearing in system tray after clos

Re: Where does apt-get download from?

From one of the repositories listed in the file, /etc/apt/sources.list

Most regular software packages will come from the Ubuntu servers, while specific Linux Mint packages will come from the LM servers.

Re: Theme Where Everything ISN'T GREY

I think MediterraneanNight has good dark themes.

Some element of gray are usually present in the darker themes, though you should be able to find a few that have just black window title borders if that's all you're after.
