Recovery Partition

I use Timeshift to back up my system. This is a total waste. I restored a snapshot successfully, and upon rebooting, I have no networking capability, and sudo is broken, along with plenty of other stuff. I restored several other snapshots- same thing. So Timeshift is actually more harm than it is go...

Re: How to disable password prompts in Mint 14?

Do *NOT* disable the password. Under *no* circumstances whatsoever. :shock: Learn the healthy way to work with Linux; don't try to turn it into a security-deficient clone of Windows. Bad advice. Some of us have a reason for disabling all security prompts. In my case, I'm running Mint in a VM that I...

Re: Custom Mint Live Login

I don't think I've modified it, especially after looking at the directions you linked to. Would it be safe to replace the corrupted one with a copy from a fresh Mint ISO? EDIT: From all appearances, there were no changes made to initrd. I rebuilt it anyway, and I come to the same problem every time....

Re: Custom Mint Live Login

I'm still having trouble with this. Is there somewhere else I can ask this question where I might get a slightly quicker response than I have so far here? I tried the usual suggestion of "googling" or "search the forums" but I haven't found any solutions. I still need help with t...

How can I dual Boot Mint and TAILS?

Hello, I currently single-boot Linux Mint, and have been doing so for some time now- and love it. I'd like to dual-boot TAILS with Mint. I want TAILS to be live every time I use it, so here's my thought: Install TAILS on a USB, use Clonezilla to copy it, then make a 4GB partition for TAILS to sit, t...

Re: Touchpad drivers

I'm having the same problem. On my netbook, HP Mini 110 on Mint 12 the touchpad worked great. Two-finger scroll, and two-finger "right click" worked well. I never tried three-finger "middle click." I couldn't figure out how to upgrade from 12 to 13, despite using the built-in upd...
