[SOLVED] home folder issue after re-install

Hello,

I just reinstalled Linux Mint in my root partition. Now, I have a root folder with a "home" folder and a separate ext3 partition which was and is supposed to be my actual home folder. How do I map the new home folder to this partition?

Re: GRUB loader problem- Blank screen

Meh... I needed my computer urgently so I just reinstalled LM. It would be awesome if there was a utility in LM live cd that could fix the GRUB easily.

Thanks anyway. I really appreciate all your help.

Re: GRUB loader problem- Blank screen

Are you dual booting? If you are dual booting ignore everything after this. You have a problem with your installation. Possibly Grub was not installed, or was installed to the wrong place. More information will be needed to determine what is wrong. I dual boot with Windows Vista SP1. I didn't have ...

I am having a problem with my GRUB loader. When I switch on my laptop, after the initial loading I expect to see the GRUB menu. But, I only get a blank screen, and then nothing else. I wanted to try reinstalling the grub using the grub2config script from the tutorials but apparently that script is n...

Re: How to remove/change the image in the GRUB

Umm... I don't know if that addresses my problem. I basically want to change the background image in my GRUB loader or whatever. It currently has an annoying flashy green background which I want to remove or change. ### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/06_mint_theme ### insmod ext2 set root='(hd0,5)' search --no-f...

How to remove/change the image in the GRUB

Hello,

I would like to change or remove the image that comes up in the GRUB, where I choose the OS to load. I tried changing the image in a text file, as directed by Ubuntu support I think, but it didn't work.

Can someone tell me how to do it?

Re: Not able to set $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Thanks... embarrassing of me.

I did what you said, and it worked. But, it doesn't remain there. If I restart my computer, I have to do the export command again. How do I permanently set the variable?

A question about Swap memory

I currently have Ubuntu installed, and am planning to switch to LinuxMint. I have a question regarding the swap space that I should allocate. I know that people suggest that it should be 1.5 to 2 times the size of your memory. But, when I type the command "free" while running the programs that I wil...

Re: Questions about LinuxMint installation in Windows Vista

Yes, it does. I guess in the long run it would be better to have a separate partition, than mint4win.

Thanks a lot!

Questions about LinuxMint installation in Windows Vista

Hello, I am planning to clean format my system, and install Windows Vista and LinuxMint, and I am just considering various options. I could always dual boot using a separate partition for LM, but I have a few questions (probably naive) about installing LinuxMint within Windows. If I use NTFS as the ...

Re: Want to remove Ubuntu and use Linux Mint

No, I am pretty sure I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a partition mounted on "/". But, all my files are in /home/<username>. Does this mean I have to move everything?

Display open applications and folders on panel

Hi,

I just installed Linux Mint. I am trying to figure out if there is a way to display which applications and folders are open on the taskbar or something. For example, if I had Firefox open, I should be able to see it on the panel, so that I don't open it again by mistake.

Thanks.
