...Actually, I have. The USB stick method will work, provided that the loss of GUI accessibility is confined to your Distro itself, and not endemic, that is, not reflecting a deeper graphics problem on the part of your computer's graphics GPU or equivalent.
sudo grub2-install /dev/sda #and sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
# To populate all changes in this file you need to regenerate your # grub configuration file afterwards: # 'grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg'
#CRAP - 1ST PART RIGHT, 2ND PART IS grub, not grub2, also #'grub2-mkconfig' is interchangeable with 'grub-mkconfig'
Yes, as said (but it bears repeating) in my Post at #22Note that timeshift is in "restore only' mode
That's good news Brian, and having the Persistent USB can be a lifesaver, this will work for whatever Distro you have taken a snap of.3.You may see an indication that from this mode, you can only restore a snapshot, not take one. Makes sense.
Yes thanks, friend, and same back at youThanks and hope you are well.
chown and chmod
Good morning @wizardfromozTimeshift itself is currently confined for usage with local drives only. Its author, Tony George, as recently as late 2017 was in no hurry to alter that status quo. However he only provides Timeshift as a labour of love, outside his full-time work, so I don't blame him for that.
Thank you @atanere for the brief of "System Restore".ust another comment... the dd command is very useful, but also very dangerous (as is anything from the command line, really). It has a pretty well-earned nickname as "data destroyer" because of its unforgiving nature.
Simplest answer, then, is ... NoLets say that I made a Snapshot and I stored it in my internal HDD,
I can find it under /timeshift/snapshots/2018-04-24 11-00/localhost.
Can I remove (copy-paste) it in an external storage devise (USB stick, external HDD), and use it again.
Is gone work in this way?
So far as I am aware, it is native, currently, only to the Linux Mint 18.3 'Sylvia' series (Cinnamon, MATE, Xfce and KDE DEs), and to an obscure Manjaro-based Distro known as Manjaro Strit, which is developed and maintained by Danish Dan "Strit" Johansen, who is one of the maintainers of Manjaro itself.I like it more bcz is shipped as native app & I don't like to download 3rd parties programs.
Poor old dd ... it gets a hard time. Most of its unexpected results can be attributed to PEBKAC - Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair...pretty well-earned nickname as "data destroyer" because of its unforgiving nature.
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install timeshift
Linux Lite is a very nice distro that I have used and installed for others. It is indeed sad that it is discontinuing support for 32-bit machines. But not only that, this recent post indicates that they have given up on ever providing UEFI support too. This decision, in my opinion, is even worse than abandoning 32-bit systems. We can only hope that perhaps Jerry and the LL Team will change their mind one day... on one, or both, of these decisions.Sadly, Linux Lite are joining an ever-increasing number of Linux Distros deserting support for 32-bit architecture (which is where products such as LL historically have really come into their own). With the 4 series it is discontinued.
If you didn't hear it first here, ... then you didn't"In Linux Mint 19, the star of the show is Timeshift. Although it was introduced in Linux Mint 18.3 and backported to all Linux Mint releases, it is now at the center of Linux Mint's update strategy and communication. Thanks to Timeshift you can go back in time and restore your computer to the last functional system snapshot. If anything breaks, you can go back to the previous snapshot and it's as if the problem never happened. This greatly simplifies the maintenance of your computer, since you no longer need to worry about potential regressions. In the eventuality of a critical regression, you can restore a snapshot (thus canceling the effects of the regression) and you still have the ability to apply updates selectively."
