I have not touched the .cache folder.
Assume Thunderbird will create this if it does not exists. Hence to do it before the first startup.

I know you marked this as solved but I would just add that (in my experience) if you copy the  ~/.thunderbird and ~/.mozilla directories back to the base of /home (before you start Thunderbird for the first time) then it will just carry on as usual with the existing profiles.

Peppermint / Re: peppermint 7 running slow
« on: May 26, 2017, 06:42:50 pm »
Are you saying that P7 is running slow or booting slow?
If the latter then try:
Code: [Select]
sudo systemd-analyze plot > bootchart.svg
This should give you bootchart.svg in the base of your home folder

I found in most of the cases where slow booting was observed, networking services was the guilty party

Did you select the USB at machine boot time to allow it to boot from it thus giving you the choice which distro to start?

You may have better luck with:

Although not tried it myself, it looks simple enough to do.

Thanks Mark for pointing that out... :-[

General Help & Advice / Re: Unable to mount partition at boot

I'm tryint to mount the partition I've named 'HOME' but I'm having problems.

Are you trying to mount that partition as /home ?
If so then add to /etc/fstab:
Code: [Select]
UUID=028d16f2-a397-4ec0-be8c-9c02f78c9ca0 /home           ext4    defaults        0       2

That will mount that parition as /home on next boot
Note, both UUID and PARTUUID points to the same partition

See if the instructions here (go to 'Stage 8') help:

For some reason you have a different ending file name
do
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Downloads
then either
Code: [Select]
gunzip linux-brprinter-installer-2.1 (1).1-1.gz
or (as you already have the extracted version) just go straight to the next step:
Code: [Select]
sudo su
then
Code: [Select]
bash linux-brprinter-installer-2.1.1-1 DCP-J315W

10
It is most likely have been downloaded to your Downloads folder
You could try to go to that folder (in the Terminal)
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Downloads
then list files residing there with
Code: [Select]
ls
if you see linux-brprinter-installer-2.1.1-1.gz listed then
Code: [Select]
gunzip linux-brprinter-installer-2.1.1-1.gz
then become root
Code: [Select]
sudo su
then
Code: [Select]
bash linux-brprinter-installer-2.1.1-1 DCP-J315W
The driver installation will start. Follow the installation screen directions.

Ubuntu / Re: Welcome to emergency mode! Secondary HDD problems

I think the easiest option is to swap drives and reinstall Ubuntu.

It would be helpful if you could give us a clue for the current partition layout (from Live USB).
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
It is possible that you deleted the partitions off your HDD which could have been used by Ubuntu.
The order of the disks is defined by their connections Disk 1 (sda) = Sata1, Disk 2 (sdb) = Sata2 etc..

14
You might be able to get that info without opening the case with:
Code: [Select]
sudo dmidecode --type 9
This should list all System Slots on the motherboard.

mount: unknown filesystem type 'exfat'

The exfat filesystem is not installed in Ubuntu/Peppermint by default.
The exFAT is a proprietary and patented by Microsoft.
Try to install it:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils
