    Google change causing problem with updates

    Tried to make this bigger, but am so far not familiar with the Mint features for doing so. Says I can't load needed update due to Google changing it's HTTPS: etc, ait it's not being reflected in the repository. How do I find the entry in (and how do I find it) the repository to reflect their...

    Moving Linux Mint Cinnamon to internal hard drive

    OK. Contacts are moved. Had not updated email on USB drive for almost 3 weeks, so I had to replace the Mail folder. Fortunately, I had copied it before making the changes. Thanks again. Kemo

    Moving Linux Mint Cinnamon to internal hard drive

    I should have looked for that. Works like a charm. I'll give the contacts/address book copy from USB to Internal drive another shot. Will let you know. Thanks. Kemo

    Moving Linux Mint Cinnamon to internal hard drive

    Well, Wiz, I think I understand pretty well your instructions on moving my contacts/address book from one disk to another. However, I have now a different dilemma that is stopping me in my tracks. Something I find truly unusual. Here's what I am seeing: when booting from the external USB drive...

    Moving Linux Mint Cinnamon to internal hard drive

    Wiz, my man, you did not "leave me hanging", and you certainly do not need to apologize to me. You give me suggestions and I go with them, which is better so I LEARN from what I try to do. I decided to just load the new internal drive from scratch, and now have everything up and running, and...

    Moving Linux Mint Cinnamon to internal hard drive

    I have been experi-MINT-ing with linux to learn more about it, and to get the system (on a laptop) to the point that it has all the capabilities that I need to have for it to be my main system for everyday use. The linux environment is currently loaded on a 1-TB USB drive. I have now used the...

    checkbook app

    Once again, you folks have exceeded my expectations, so many thanks. Here's where I currently: - I have successfully installed Thunderbird and HomeBank, and copied my data from Money 2000 to HomeBank, copied my contacts to Thunderbird, installed Google Chrome (I have a serious dislike for...

    checkbook app

    Thanks for all suggestions and info. I have been using MS Money 2000 for some time now and it more than serves my purposes. I don't need budgeting, access to bank.,etc. After perusing the suggested options, HomeBank looks to be what I need. Some time ago, I developed a spreadsheet to handle...

    checkbook app

    I'm running Mint Cinnamon. I'm looking for an app to use to track and balance my checkbook. As I slowly leave Windows behind, I have most of the tools I need for this transition. There is a huge difference in naming conventions and other terminology, but I'm getting there. Also, is there a...

    make my Linux Portable....

    I must have missed something. I loaded a fresh copy of Linux Mint Cinnamon on an external USB disk drive, on a laptop, which seems to be running OK. I tried to copy the .thunderbird folder from the Linux setup on the laptop internal drive, where Thunderbird was working just fine, but when I...

    Thanks. USB drive is 1 TB. Don't believe it's formatted at all, so "Que?" Gets its power from USB port.

    linux on usb disk drive

    OK. I should have been more specific about where I am in the process. Sorry. I already installed Linux Mint Cinnamon on the laptop, and have used the Thunderbird e-mail, the document processor and the spreadsheet processor. I should have said that I want to move everything from the hard...

    linux on usb disk drive

    I saw a post about how to create linux (Mint Cinnamon in my case) on a bootable USB external drive. I have a terabyte usb drive that I would like to start using as my main disk, since I have been getting occasional read errors on the old laptop's internal drive. Not wanting to invest anything...
