Re: Starting and running AMPPS

It looks like it's a "doctored" version of a basic LAMP service. Suggest that you read through the available documentation. High probability that it is running at startup. You should have an index page imbedded within the server site directory (as in read the documentation). My suggest... if you're ...

Re: Control over updates for OS and Applications

You might want to gain more control over the entire update process by turning off the auto-update option. Combined with a decent backup strategy should provide a higher level of control (and recovery should something go amiss with respect to the updates provided (yes it does happen on occassion). Si...

Re: Data recovery

With Mint 17 out of the box, the LAMP is now installing a subdirectory called /html (this is contrast to the var/www as the document root for Apache since dirt was invented). Unless you have added content to the /var/www/html folder, the only file that resides in there is the plain-jane index.html. ...

Re: Resizing

If you're referencing partition level resizing, then my recommendation is to use GParted. If you are intending to resize your boot partition, then run Gparted from either the LIveDVD-CD or a utility source like RescueCD.

Re: Bleachbit. How to use it?

Rather than just go on about the woes (real or imagined) in Bleachbit, I'm posting my settings for Bleachbit. I run this along with the non-root twice a week. It is run just before I initiate my partition level backups (fsarchiver). One set of Bleachbit is run before the first partition level is run...

Why don't you just use the filemanager of choice and copy the entire /home over to a removeable device (i.s. usb stick or sd card)?

Re: cannot viewcanon 60d photos via the file manager

You might try looking in /media, that's the standard mount point for sd cards.

Note for my 60D, I have been using a cheapo mulit-format reader for years. Absolutely works 100% of the time with no messing about with apps.

Re: Backup ? TIA

Since you have a drive dedicated to backups, I would encourage you to take a serious look at a using a partition level backup application. The two popular ones are fsarchiver and clonezilla. I personally use fsarchiver bundeled with RescueCD on a weekly basis to back up my ops along with my 17 data ...

Re: what is eating my disc space? Linux Mint 16

To help clean things up, you might want to checkout Bleachbit (it's in the repositories). It does a credible job of cleaning out some of the accumulated garbage that accumulates (rotated log files, cache's etc). It's in the repository so it can be easily installed via Synaptic. There are 2 versions,...

Re: delete and start over

The reason that partition(s) are greyed out is that you are trying to edit (change) a partition while booted into it. If your intended Linux Mint is the only operating system and data storage on the PC, then merely boot into the LiveCD / DVD and install again choosing the entire drive option. If you...

Re: Recommended Updates - Mint 13 x64 (Mate)

Why don't you just do a partition level update BEFORE you update? Do another immediately AFTER update. That way you have a recovery point should you not be satisfied with the results of the update. Some of the partition level apps available include: fsarchiver (the one I have used weekly for 5+ year...

Generally speaking it is a command line application. Numerous GUI based apps call it (I believe GIMP may be one of them).
