Are you saying the right-click context menu "move to" is there but doesn't work (it only works from the nemo menubar) ? .. if so, you should probably report it as a bug on the Mint/Cinnamon bug tracker
http://developer.linuxmint.com/reporting-an-issue.html

It works in Peppermint, and we both use Nemo as the file manager (though ours is the version from Mint 18).

You'll not get iTunes to work under Linux I'm afraid .. the only way I can use it is to either dualboot Windows, or to have a Windows virtual machine with USB passthrough.

Why won't it run in Vbox ? .. is it graphics intensive (such as a game) ?

Well I installed qtcreator and attempted to load/build the project .. but it's asking me to configure a "kit" for this project, and there's no information on which "kit", where to get it, and/or how to configure it for this project .. so basically I'm stuck.

Sorry, but qtcreator is completely alien to me.

I'm not seeing any directly compilable code there (certainly no build instructions or make file) .. it looks more like a qtcreator project .. maybe it can be built and run with qtcreator.

You didn't mention your Ubuntu version and architecture MattC .. if you're unsure, can you open a terminal and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/lsb-release
and
Code: [Select]
uname -a

Can you link to the instructions you followed, and mention which distro/version/architecture you're running (eg. Ubuntu 18.04 64bit).

If you're creating the LiveUSB from within Peppermint 7

a) Download the Peppermint 9 64bit ISO from here:
https://peppermintos.com/iso/Peppermint-9-20180621-amd64.iso

b) Insert your USB stick

c) Right-click on the Peppermint-9-20180621-amd64.iso file you downloaded earlier, and select "Make Bootable USB Stick"

d) In the "USB Image Writer" window that just opened, select your USB stick and click the "Write" button.

Once that finishes, reboot the PC from the USB stick.

When you decide to install Peppermint 9 (preferably from the Live session desktop icon), one of the options should be to "Replace Peppermint - Wipe the drive and install Peppermint"
(be aware this will do EXACTLY as it says and wipe the drive, so make sure you've copied off any files you need to keep FIRST)

Oddly being on the team sometimes makes it harder to recommend .. I have to be careful I'm not projecting 'MY' usage preferences on the person asking. As well as not wanting to appear self promoting.

Not that it's ever stopped me ;D

Ubuntu / Re: Ubuntu 18.04 not working on live USB [SOLVED]
« on: November 09, 2018, 03:15:56 pm »
You're most welcome Keith :)

Have you considered Ubuntu MATE 18.04 .. this has the MATE desktop (which is a fork of Gnome 2.x, so very much like gnome-session-flashback which is trying to 'mimic' Gnome 2.x) out of the box .. it also appears more tweakable and has a decent file manager Caja (again a fork of Gnome's Nautilus but without having being stripped of functionality as recent version of Nautilus have). It's also lighter on system resources (not as light as Pepermint, but not far off).

Gnome IMHO have oversimplified the Gnome 3 UI (whilst at the same time having made it 'heavier'), so if you prefer making it more like Gnome 2.x via flashback you'd probably be better off with MATE which was forked from Gnome 2.x in the first place.

Just a thought ;)
