When I installed Ubuntu 12.04 alongside Mint 10 on my mates PC in the
PC shop today.
I asked if he was sure, he insisted he was so I did. ;-)
Part of the reason though was to be able to have a 'second look' into
why the mouse occasionally went mad on there, creating loads of new
folders for no apparent reason (I deleted nearly 40 when I got there).
He had already replaced the mouse for a brand new one but it was still
12.04 went on there (an old Dell server of some sort) ok and seems
I logged out to show him how you could select Classic instead of Unity
but I guess I must have forgotten to install summat beforehand (I just
got Unity and Unity 2D)?
I just created a root partition for Ubuntu whereas I'd previously
created a / and /home for the Mint 10 install. I think I'm right in
saying that you shouldn't really share a /home between different Linux
installs on the same machine?
