Are my partitions ok? , I mean is it good to have / (root) after /home?
There are people who have / and /home on completely different drives, so I would not think it makes a difference if your / is before or after /home on the same drive.
thank you, !!

Well the problem seems to be solved. I did all of these , so I don't know what solved it:

1- cleaned the integrated keyboard with a brush
2- cleaned the integrated USB ports.
3-In "software manager fonts"- "maintenance" - "fix merge list", "purge residual configuration"- "eliminate duplicates entries" (sorry if it is not the right translation, my OS is in Spanish)
4- also eliminate and delete everything related to "flatpak"

As you can see I don't know where was the solution, but it did the trick.

I leave this "solution" here to help anybody with the same problem. Although I never knew where was it cause.

If you edit the title of the very first post in this thread and add [SOLVED] then others will know there is a "solution" in the thread which might help them.

Eso es correcto.

If you manually configure your drive - Mint cares not where your partitions are on a drive.
Si configura manualmente su unidad, a Mint no le importa dónde están sus particiones en una unidad.


There must be in partition named /
for your operating system
Debe haber una partición llamada /
para su sistema operativo

You must have a partition named /home
for your data and configuration files
Debe tener una partición llamada / home
para sus datos y archivos de configuración

Puede verse como / luego / casa (más común)
It can look like / then /home (most common)

puede verse como / hogar entonces / (como el tuyo)
it can look like /home then / (like yours)
