    How do I get rid of lubuntu and replace it with PeppermintOS?

    What do I copy and paste into the command line? I want my files to all still be there.

    You have a separate /home partition, right?

    If you want to replace Lubuntu completly with PeppermintOS, you could do it following the below:

    - first backup all your important data such as files, bookmarks, emails onto a usb disc or memory stick or burn it on a cd/dvd if it is not that much.
    - then download a live-cd of Gparted and burn it onto a disc.
    - restart your pc with the Gparted live-cd in the cd/dvd drive.
    - when Gparted is up-and-running, remove the partition on which Lubuntu is installed.
    - then reboot your machine.
    - you will get a message saying to remove your Gparted live-cd, this is a good time to swap the Gparted live-d with the installation disc/live-cd of PeppermintOS.
    - after your machine is rebooted, follow the installation instruction given by PeppermintOS.

    Good luck!

    /home mount point

    There are several ways. One is to run df -h and see if /home is on a line of its own. Another is to look in /etc/fstab and see if /home is on a line of its own. Another is to run mount and see if /home is on a line of its own. And so on.

    No, I don't have a separate home partition!

    Just backup your data on an external hd or whatever it is that you use to make backups. Then do a clean install of Peppermint OS.

    Be sure to test the backups before doing the clean install. Also when doing the install, this is a good chance to make a separate /home partition!
