Re: Virtual Box Questions

Here is a good tip. Annoyance, Virtual Box unmounts and takes control of my external USB drive.

Re: no desktop effects with Mint 6

I was able to run effects until I did a reinstall, then I had the same problem. If the gnome desktop provides effects, it will not allow compiz to work.

Re: VirtualBox Error

I find when I screw up my system, I just pop in the CD and do a reinstall. Just do not format the partition, set partition to root and use the same name and password, and import documents and settings for linux mint when it asks. Your system will be like new, all your data will be in the home folder...

Here is how the last few lines of my sources.list looks. See how your compares. You can just cut and paste and replace your other repositories down, it might help? ## ------------------ ## OTHER REPOSITORIES ## ------------------ ## +++ Canonical (stable) +++ deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/...

configuring Mint Backup

Is there any way to configure mint backup? All it does is back up to home directory with no options. I would like to back up to the external drive. Any way to edit the pearl script?

TIA
