Re: Lenovo T520 SSD and HDD /home location

Hello krustybaquette - If you do not have a separate /home partition, then the link I provided has the instructions you need to create a new /home partition on another device and then copy the data files from your current /home to the new /home. I just checked the 500 GB which up to now has been my...

Re: Lenovo T520 SSD and HDD /home location

Hello krustybaquette - I think this might be more along the lines of what you have in mind: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving A question about your current partitions on the 120GB SSD: Do you simply have root and swap? Or, do you have root, swap, and home? I did a regular i...

Re: Lenovo T520 SSD and HDD /home location

When I receive the necessary "multi-bay drive caddy I want to link the two drives so I will have one /home location. Is it possible? This implies a logical layer above 2 physical partitions with different sizes from two drives. There is lvm or btrfs but i would not recommend such setup mixing ssd a...

Re: Software manager (GUI) doesn't work??

OK, after reading several posts in several forums, a recurring theme became apparent: I was using Fprintd. Fprintd is supposed to provide biometric login (swipe your fingerprint, you're in). The program kinda-sorta works (lots of failed fingerprint reads), but "locks out" certain GUI functions. Rem...

Re: backup home b4 install LM17

If you knew the pattern of which hidden folders you wanted and which you didn't, you could cherry-pick using regular expressions on the command line. I guess if your second hard drive in the multi-bay was mounted under /home then you could copy over 500 Gb. Thanks for replying, but I've resolved th...

From your post it seems that you are dual booting Windows and Linux. I did that for quite a while until I decided to try virtualization. I've been running Win7 as a guest system under Linux Mint 13 for quite a while now. After my purchase yesterday of the WF-3540 at local Staples I was debating retu...
