Re: The definitive dual-booting guide

I am not sure this would work for every one, but I use virtual box, you can install windoze on the virtual machine, and not even bother with multiple boots and waiting for your PC to reboot and shut down the slug of an OS windoze.

Same thing happened to me. Double click the volume object in the lower right hand corner, and check that all the sliders are up. I have a Dell also. Hope this helps you.

Re: configuring Mint Backup

I found them right in the Synaptic Package Manager. I just checked, currently I have libqt4core and libqtgui4 installed, I dont not have libqt4-core or libqt4-gui installed. I would just give it a try, you can always uninstall just as easy if it dont work.

Re: Live external USB drive?

Installed Unebootin, it nicely prepares the external hard drive, boots as if it were the live cd, but everything is much faster. Cant wait to install the next distro!

Re: Undelete partitions?

I found a utility called TestDisk, that allowed me to recover the partitions. It would not have been the end of the world, as I have another external hard disk that I swap and sync with every month. But I am glad I did not have to recreate a the one I deleted.

You should post screen shots of your printer configuration set up step by step. For me, it was the simplest printer install in my life?
