Re: Switching from Ubuntu

Install and run apt-on-cd on your Ubuntu System. Burn the iso image to a cd. Repeat the process in Mint but instead, you will restore within apt-on-cd in Mint.

Re: Partition ownership

Make sure you're using the root mode for Krusader (red icon).

Re: Can't install Mint with burned CD

I'm not familiar with your Windows burning s/w. If you are sure that you are in fact burning it as an iso and not a data file then you might want to check to see if the app supports md5 sum checks. You'll have to hunt around within you app for this feature. Also, check the sticky on this board for a...

Re: Partition ownership

I think that if you change the ownership and group to your user id, you'll be ok. If you use the root-mode for Krusader, you should be able to accomplish this under the properties. Of course, you could also do this in command mode by $sudo chgrp /media/somedirectory myuserid $sudo chown /media/somed...

Re: Partition Problems

Get a copy of GParted Live. Burn the iso and boot directly to the burned CD. Make your changes and you should be good-to-go. Note <opinion> GParted Live is an essential tool you probably want to have available anyways</opinion>. It's a whole lot faster to boot to GParted Live than it is for most Liv...

Re: Mint 5 KDE Multiple Desktop Question

Thanks, that did it. A bit surprised that it isn't the default state ... but I guess that's all part of the re-familiarization process with Mint and the current KDE :) .

Recently installed the version 5 KDE of Mint. In the desktops setup I have it set to 6 desktops. Haven't been able to decipher how to switch desktops as I don't see any links in the bottom toolbar to the individual desktops. Would appreciate it if someone would point me in the correct direction. Tha...

Re: The New MintInstall?

Unless I'm missing something here, the MintInstall has separate tabs for GetDeb, APT and Mint. The APT option is selectable for either the Mint of Ubuntu repository.

Looks pretty complete for me.

Re: fstab question, and UUIDs revisited

Hi First, a question. Has the problem of no Fstab entries for partitions other than the one LM is installed on fixed yet? This problem does not exist if you choose the manual partition at time of installation. With the manual partition, you can identify any partition on any of your hard drives to b...

Re: [help] Backup using Mint and a external USB enclosure

For the ext3 partition(s), you might want to check out the Backup Strategy on my web site for one approach. No constructive comment on the NTFS backups ... :) .

Re: KDE Upgrade

If you've got the storage room on your HD, why not just create ext3's and install Mint 6 along with your current production version (Mint 5)? That way you can "kick the tires" without making the hard committment on an ops that may prove to be problematic with your H/W. If you like what you see with ...

Re: Partitioning double check me pls?

A little late and no biggee, but I would have suggested creating an extended partition first. Then within the extended partition, set up you swap and 2 ext3's (for "/" and "/home"). Set the "/" at ~8G and /home for whatever you need for file storage and config's. This will allow you to add other dis...

Re: bad install disc?

If you are using k3b as your burn app, you can verify the md5 by: 1. After you have identied the image file to burn, allow k3b to compute the md5 (it will do this automatically). You can see the progress of the md5 computation at the bottom of the file selection window. 2. Check the "Verify Data" op...
