Re: Resizing disk: / point. Is it possible?

Uh, just use your Linux Mint CD / DVD / USB stick from which you installed it (or download a new one). Boot into the live session, and use GParted from there to resize your partitions. Maximum number of partitions? I see you have /dev/sda6 which is a logical partition. You can have at least 20 logi...

Re: How to write a Bash shell script - by example

Please delete this post if this is not the place to ask and let me know so that I can ask the question properly :) Is BASH a programming language itself or is it based on something and not a complete language? EDIT: I am trying to learn Java, and this was supposed to be a hobby, but Java proved to b...

Re: Grub showing amd64 but I have intel

I think it only means that you are trying to install 64 bit version of it.

I don't know the story behind this, but I have installed Mint 64 bit, and it said amd64. And I have an Intel processor too. It won't be a matter I guess.

Resizing disk: / point. Is it possible?

Hi, It seems I made a bad installation. I installed Mint on a single partition and a swap partition. I allocated 28 GB for Mint as I didn't expect myself to use it as much as I am doing right now. So, I got an alert today, saying that only 1 GB remaining is all I have, I resized the Windows part and...

Re: Ubuntu One - Installed, but it is nowhere!

It's just funny how it is. I just wanted to give it a try and it didn't let me :) They are releasing one for Windows, maybe someday on Windows then :D I use Dropbox now. I just wanted to try it too. Spider Oak sounds good. I can use it to keep my really personal files :) Thank you for your help and ...

Re: Ubuntu One - Installed, but it is nowhere!

In Ubuntu the laucher icon for Ubuntu One has as command: ubuntuone-control-panel-gtk I just installed Ubuntu via Wubi just to try that command too. It doesn't work in both Mint and Ubuntu. I think it is something with my PC. Could this app be meant for only some regions or something? I am about to...

I have them apparently. It says you have the newest version.

Did I mention that I couldn't get it run in Ubuntu too?

Re: Ubuntu One - Installed, but it is nowhere!

With your help about checking the packages, now I have an Ubuntu One icon in my Control Center :) However, it doesn't run. When I try from Control Panel, it says "Opening Ubuntu One" and just shuts down. I though it just made me be able to use it from menu or shell. Now, I have three commands to run...

Re: Hello from Windows :)

Thank you guys for welcoming me :) Now I am 23, still a gamer but not a hardcore I used to be, so Wine+PlayOnLinux would be enough I hope. Wine is a revolution for the guys like me. You want to use Linux more, but you have to switch to Windows in seconds sometimes. Another thing that make people sca...

Re: How did you "learn" Linux?

Hi, I am a newbie myself too, but I guess I have a good start point here: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial That's why I love communities :) And I found http://tldp.org/HOWTO/HOWTO-INDEX/categories.html I guess we should just get started from somewhere. I always looked for some hierarchical tu...

Ubuntu One - Installed, but it is nowhere!

Hi, Using Software Manager, I found and installed Ubuntu One. It was successfully installed. I see a green tick on its logo now. But it doesn't seem to be installed. I can't find it on startup menu, I can't find it on my computer, I can't run it by typing ubuntuone-client into the shell. When I try ...

Hello from Windows :)

Hi, This is my first post to the forum but this is not the first and the only attempt to migrate to Windows for good. Unfortunately, I was very young when I tried to migrate to Linux (Age 13) and gave up too quick (How can you live with an OS which doesn't run Fifa and PES?). Time to time, I was tir...
