Redo of partitioning scheme

I have been using a folder in my Win7 installation as a common area to store files for both Mint and Win7. It's running close enough to being "full" that I've freed up some space that is currently unallocated. In the current scheme /dev/sdb4 is my /home/kenneth but since I keep very little informati...

Re: <SOLVED>unlock login keyring LM9

My number 1 nuisance n Ubuntu/Mint - no one needs this paranoid level of protection in Linux, at least it shouldn't be default but an extra option for users who can't sleep with the window open no matter how hot it is and who wear suspenders in case the belt fails them.

After installing, I restarted and remove the USB. I get the message "NTLDR is missing, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". I am not able to boot at all as I am not able to access GRUB. This "NTLDR" message is Windows related. It stands for NT (as in NTFS) Loader. I would guess that the MBR remained bef...

Re: Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" released!

Upgrade possible from LM11? Wouldn't recommend upgrading from LM11, especially considering the radical changes from GNOME 2.x to 3.x. Instead, perhaps a fresh install (after thorough backups) would be the way to go. There's a detailed post by Clem on the LM Community site regarding this. (The commu...

Re: Installing Tar.gz and using Synaptic Manger..

Files appended with .tar.gz are called gzipped tarballs, and for the most part, usually contain source code for a program which you have to manually compile and install yourself. The reason that they exist is simply because not all Linux systems use the same package management system as Mint (and a...
