    Re: Encountered a Section with No Header

    I believe in you!

    I still might switch to Mint in the future, simply because I'm more comfortable with a Windows-esque layout. Would this same forum be a good place to go for advice on how to do that? And do I need a DVD of the install, or is there another way to go about it?

    connor.ruebusch; Hey,

    Faith is a good thing !

    Let's try this approach and see how far we get.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
    sudo ppa-purge ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
    sudo apt-get purge cinnamon
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    If all that goes well, look and see what cleanup remains:
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
    As I am not completely sure that the "fetches" will be removed by the above. Bet that must be done manually, AFTER all else is removed.

    For a "Windows-esque layout" try Lubuntu. a much simpler and lighter desk top environment.
    As to Mint. sure, we not only do ubuntu, but any linux distribution ! However the knowledge base may be somewhat limited.
    As to weather Mint will fit on a CD, can not advise; The lighter releases of 'buntu will fit on a CD. The CD/DVD is my preferred method to install, but, there are several others.
