  1. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Ubuntu 18.04 with 2 hd to read as one

    I would shrink sda5 down to 25G ASAP. Then make another partition for data and perhaps 1 for swap. Swap on a desktop should be 4.1GB in size unless you hibernate. Hibernation has security...

    There are 50 different ways to accomplish what you seem to be asking. Adding storage later has very little to do with how things are setup during installation, except that big choices like to use or...

  4. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Ubuntu 18.04 with 2 hd to read as one

    Don't confuse the entire disk (sdb) with partitions (sdb1, sdb2, sdb100) on the disk. Windows says "disk" almost always when it really means "partition". C: is a partition on a drive. D: is a...

  8. [Peppermint] Re: Strange problem: terminal opened in wrong directory when using CTRL+ALT+T

    Only a guess, but perhaps some terminals remember the last CWD where they were?

    I've never seen this and can't think of any normal way for an inherited CWD/PWD to be modified before the WM+DE get...

  11. Re: Sudo won't work, Graphics drivers can't install

    Or boot into a Try Ubuntu environment, then mount the partition with the /etc/ directory and simply edit the group file to add your userid to the sudo group. The passwd and group files are really...
  12. Re: Sudo won't work, Graphics drivers can't install

    Linux is multi-user from the ground up. Everything about it cares about the current userid. Sometimes commands care about the hostname and network name too.

    Linux isn't stupid, it is just...

    Re: Backing up home before upgrade

    Regardless of the drive you get, you'll want to use a native Linux file system. ext4 if spinning or SSD and f2fs if a flash drive. f2fs needs f2fs-tools package installed. Do not use FAT-whatever...

    +1 to what CatKiller suggests. For someone knew to Unix/Linux, LVM and RAID are not beginner-level skills.

    [ubuntu] Re: Deleting linux

    As others have stated, Unix cannot alter partitions that are in use. If they are mounted, they are in-use. So, if you had more than 1 partition and only 1 was in-use, then you'd be able to modify...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Ubuntu 18.04 with 2 hd to read as one

    Or use LVM. It would be smart to follow the partitioning best practices. Unix isn't Windows. You really don't want 4TB for / or the OS. That is NOT a best practice.

    Re: Problem with encrypted home folder

    If it was 1MB before and is 20MB now, that isn't a big deal.
    OTOH, if it was 20GB before and is 400GB now, that is an issue.
