Update from LM17 to LM19 Solved

Post by slinger1953 » Thu Sep 13, 2018 2:10 am

Hello,

How do I go about upgrading,
Can I update from LM17 to the latest LM (19?) and keep stuff like my Printer settings and my “Home” contents? Without having to reload everything.

Thank you

It isn't advisable. If home is on its own partition then you can just install Mint with the Something Else option and mount home without formatting it. Otherwise backup your treasured stuff and clean install.

Thanks catweazel,
That makes sense, and that is what I'll do!
