Re: Will not boot, HD full, boot from usb unable to move files or empty trash

OK, next sudo find /mnt -iname '*trash*' -delete, but they are small files and symlinks so I don't think that will give you enough space yet.

After running the above run sudo du -hd1 /mnt/home/ligia

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fingerprint/fprint
^^This has to be run in a terminal in order to add the PPA.

In Software Sources putting ppa:fingerprint/fprint into the box will suffice.
Yea, you just didn't do it correctly as philotux advised so use either method as outlined.

Hi all. I added 2 PPAs to the Software Sources list. However, they don't show up when I go back to view them. Only option that's given is to Add. Can anyone please advise? Cheers!
How did you add them :?:

Paste back the results of inxi -r which will list the repos.

Re: SSD for Boot and HDD for storage problem

philotux,

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but It seems like the OP wants just the boot partition on sda1(SSD) and the rest on the HDD

I'm wondering what the advantage of that is :?

But, maybe I'm just confused :(

Re: SSD for Boot and HDD for storage problem

moosivaras,

Can I ask what the purpose is/what you expect to gain having /boot on the SSD :?:

Having a separate /home partition makes more sense in the context of upgrades or reinstallation.

Re: doing new install, formatting of Win7 drive taking way too long

Try formatting the partition pre-installation from the terminal using mkfs.ext4 -v so you can see what's happening,

If it hangs-up get the pid and sudo strace -p pid should provide further information

From what I understand all desktop versions come bundled with the same suite of applications. The base system for Mint is Ubuntu and I'm assuming the same base applications are included with all version. This is what I've observed since using Mint for a few years.
