Re: Do I need antivirus for my Mint 17.3 Rosa?

do I need antivirus? If so, which? I guess Comodo makes a product, but I seem to recall that ALL free antivirus programs are basically telemetry gatherers for profit. Advice? My advice is, as I believe many here will echo, do not use any Antivirus programs/scanners. There's really no need for them ...

Re: Routine complete backup

And do you define 'necessary changes'? Surely there is a simpler way! The changes are just the UUID's of the flash drive partitions as they will differ from the source machine's partitions. Also you can replicate a 20GIG / and 20GIG /home partition to a 32GIG flash since the total file usage was on...

Re: Automatic login

@WharfRat: things have changed in 18.2, with LightDM instead of MDM.... :) Wow, thanks for letting me know. I installed the latest Mint version on this machine last year then upgraded via the update manager to 18.2 so I'm still running mdm as the display manager. I checked the VB installation of Mi...

Re: confusion over 'sytem info' vs 'inxi -S and cat /etc/*-release

It seems apparent that you're still at Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa.

Does your update manager's edit pull-down show an upgrade available :?:

You also might want to consider a fresh 18.2 installation.

Re: Bleachbit?

greyowl,

If you do decide to use it, be very careful of your settings/selections.

Many posters to this forum have suffered dire consequences after running bleachbit.

Re: Linux Mint partition corrupt - chance of recovery?

I'm surprised that windows blew away your linux partition :? Other than that slight omission of backups (note, plural) you seem to have done most of the sensible recovery things. But on that evidence you are between a rock and a hard place if testdisk/photorec can't help. I have to agree with syg00 ...
