Re: "gparted" what is it and what is it for?

'
ve wondered several times whey GParted isn't auto included
May be because we do bot really need it when Nibt install does it job.

As concerning me I installed LM 15 (twice) + LM16 and gparted wasnot needed.

Re: Clonezilla,,,where is it ?

Thank you I got it.

I did not know we can reach it only from terminaland I was trying to launch it from Mint menu.

I want to reinstall my HD and do not want to lost my "fine tuning". Clonezilla looks like appropriate for a such task.
If any other ideas , you're welcome.

Re: Disable confirmation dialog on shutdown

Kill two birds with one stone.
Install Shutdown timer 1.1 http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/95

Because sometime it may be useful to set a timer but as the timer is set to 0 minutes, just click on Shutdown and you will shutdown , right away, without confirmation dialog.

Re: Mint 16 Cinnamon - Elevated CPU Temp?

Cinnemon needs more CPU calculation en with a Celeron it is harder.

Below 60 C you are safe.
Look a good spot for CPU : http://cpuboss.com
