Re: Recovery of encrypted /home fails

Thanks for your suggestion, deepakdeshp, but the directions given at that page proved to be incomplete. The solution came from a linux-user friend of mine and I'm sharing it below: 1) boot LM (from a live media or from installed system) 2) mount the partition containing the encrypted /home. It will ...

I would like to place the system on the 20gb unit and my home partition on the second drive. Since I'd want to use LM disk encryption (LUKS) on instal...

Hi all. Mint Cinnamon 17.3. I'm running an (offline) Firefox extension called "GAUTH" ( take a look the developer's website ), but starting from FF version 48.0 it won't be working anymore due to a change in Mozilla's policies about I-don't-know-what. So now I want to replace GAuth with an...

Re: How to update Pale Moon browser?

Here comes a newbie's list of questions:

1) How to know where the old version is installed?
2) How to completely wipe every trace of old install (I don't want to disseminate useless obsolete data within my system)?
3) How to check and/or specify the proper location of new install?

Thank you.
