editing hard drive partions.

I am using the regular updated long-term linux mint. I have only a 80gb hard drive, and I would like to reserve 18gb for data. I have used gparted before, but in trying to divide space on the hard drive, I do not find how to do that. Is it possible? Thanks.

RC versus final release

I am using Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon and love it. It is a release candidate. Do I have to uninstall it and then install the final release? Or, will the updates be provided for the release candidate? I tried Mate first, but did not feel right. No reason. Thanks.

Re: pcmcia compact flash adapter card not recognized

Yes the compact flash card was in the adapter.

I have now installed LinuxMint 12 on my Toshiba Tecra M9 and it doesn't recognize the pcmcia slot on the tecra either. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks.

Dell lattitude d610 what would you reccomend

I have a Dell lattitude d610 with 2gb of memory and a 1.7mhz cpu and a 915GM/GMS, 9100ML express chipset.
It seems to be running slow on my just installed LinuxMint 11.

What distribution would work the best on this machine? I would appreciate your input!

Thanks! :)

suspend and password

How to I fix it so that I do not have to enter my password after I suspend and then resume. It is a real pain. I suspend multiple times during the day and I am the only one here so there is not security issue. Thanks.

Re: Name of HP Scanner that works...please

Thank you for responding. Does it automatically work when you plug it into the usb port? Do you have to find a special Linux driver? Thanks.

I have a multi-function Brothers MFC-495cw that will print but not scan. I am tired of fooling with it. I want to kn...

Brother MFC-495cw support

I can get the printer to work, but not the scanner and I really don't care about the fax part.

I went to Brothers site and downloaded the driver pkg for printing and scanning for this printer, but the scanning does not work.
The scanning program cannot find the scanner.

Thanks. :(
