Re: Can't use Timeshit, using NTFS backup drive, what do I use?

Whatever the program was, it didn't back up the actual data but the configuration and what data you specified, rather than the full install. I don't remember what it is called. I have a condition where I don't remember things well over time.

I guess I will hold of on my tower until I have confidence in this. Two things that could have gone wrong: I may have failed to properly turn off all software...

Re: Cinnamon fallback after upgrade

Yes, I cannot get the install manager or the sources or the update manager to open.

I'm going to hold off on my desktop.

But my laptop didn't upgrade properly and I don't know where to go from here.
