    Re: Newbie for Xubuntu

    i followed the instructed provide by ... https://tutorialforlinux.com/2018/04...04-bionic-lts/ ... to install WINE.
    but when i wish to run .exe ... i found no WINE...where has xubuntu placed my WINE?
    You need Windows installer for the program. Right click on windows installer and you should see option "Open with Wine Windows Program Loader". That should open the installer in wine and install the program itself. After install, you might get a launcher in the menu or maybe not. I can't say for sure as the wine I have runs in XFCE desktop. If not, you may want to make one. When wine installs your program, it informs you where it is to be installed. Pay attention.

    Wine has no GUI, except for winecfg which configures the wine environment. Run winecfg from terminal.

    Look for tutorials on wine's web site or other places on internet.

    if i wish to mount sda4 permanently, i will use this
    sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sda4 /mnt

    if i wish to mount sdb permanently, i will use this
    sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sdb /mnt
    is that right? please correct me, if i'm wrong
    thank you

    mount will mount a file system until you un-mount or quit. People who want automatic mount at startup put an entry into /etc/fstab like this one I have to mount my data partition:
    Code:
    UUID=c3121154-ee33-418b-8c43-10377841e3c2 /mnt/Data ext4 defaults 0 2
    A similar entry should work for you. Just change UUID and mount point to what you need.

    Your 2nd display:
    you can't mount /dev/sdb as that is not a partition. sdb1 would designate a partition.

    BTW,
    I also just answered your wine question in post #11.

    Re: Newbie for Xubuntu

    An extended partition is a partition that can hold multiple logical partitions.
    The old standard partition scheme MBR could only create 4 primary partitions.
    To get around this limitation it was given the ability to create one primary partition that could extend that by allowing many logical partitions within it.
    So that's basically what the extended partition is.

    This gives a somewhat better explanation I think:

    FTR, the newer GPT partitioning scheme can have many primary partition, thus making logical and extended partitions mostly moot.
