Moving user data ubuntu to mint

Postby linuxsudoer » Tue Oct 30, 2012 9:51 am

My friend is wanting me to upgrade his ubuntu 10.04 to linux Mint. He wants me to save his data, but from the live CD I cannot copy his data to my server. I telling me I do not have permissions. The main reason for upgrading is he broke the ubuntu so it doesnt boot into anymore. And he needed an upgrade.

Run nautilus or other file browser with root permissions
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
