Re: Back in Time and Timeshift

I am not familiar with either Back in Time or Time Machine. I believe those are for Data recovery or backup. Timeshift is designed to recover your operating system from failed software "updates". Not sure if it is actually useful/successful for many. I tried it and found it to be less than satisfact...

Re: Caja 1.20.2 rename bug

Just to ping anyone interested in this thread: I posted a way to reproduce this bug here: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?p=1765488#p1765488 I guess you never filed a bug report...

Re: out of space,tear down that partition!

Like Pierre said above. Use Live Media and manipulate the partitions with Gparted. It is probably crashing because you have no room left and no swap partition. After you have some room for the system to run it will probably be fine. You will probably need to move the boundary of that extended partit...

Re: DOSEMU and LMDE 4

Apparently there is a package for DOSEMU in Sid. Yes, version 1.4.0.7+20130105+b028d3f-2+b1 is in the Sid repos. try it. BTW: despite common lore Sid seems to be pretty stable, I use it daily on a couple machines but I do Backup all Data frequently and always have fallback OS installed and ready.

Re: How do I remove Linux Mint installation and partition from a dual boot SSD from within Mint itself?

There is no "Linux Mint" installed in your system, so that option from the Grub menu will not work. NOW, make a plan of where you want to install and do it. The existing Grub Menu will be replaced with a fresh one that should work. First, before you keep messing around..... ***did you backup your pe...

Re: Regarding Mount Order [SOLVED]

No reformatting or cloning of any sort, which makes the situation strange, I think. I am going to try mounting using the PARTUUID first and see if that works (I wasn't aware fstab could use PARTUUIDs). If not, I will assign different volume labels to make them unique. If this still doesn't work, I ...

wow, that is very strange. The UUID is intended to be unique (universally unique identifier (UUID)) I have no idea how it got that way, but maybe it was a manufacturer thing. *You can use Gparted to change the UUID to a new Random UUID... and then you would edit your fstab file to match.

Re: net install options

I agree with both of you. Net Install is very nice.

IF adequate internet speed is available it is great, and for the last few years it has been my preferred method.
Kitchen Sink is fine for some. but not for many.

Solution: roll your own. It is a worthwhile learning experience.

I use Firefox ESR. Same experience when I tested Mint Mate.

My profile is extensive, nothing came over with the FF Mint version.
