I have Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit. I want to do a new install of 11.04 on the same system, without doing an upgrade.
Is there a quick/easy backup method to re-install my programs and settings that I want? For example, I use Thunderbird as my mail client, and have about 8 e-mail addresses. It would be nice to be able to install Thunderbird again and copy whatever files are needed so I don't lose my settings.
I want to do a re-install because my system has become quite cluttered and there is a lot I want to get rid of, so I want to be able to selectively choose what I want to restore in terms of programs.
Any thoughts/ideas/questions welcome.
