Linux Mint - Free and powerful

How to create a clean install of Linux Mint 15 Olivia and keep your settings (mostly) intact. Part 1.

Mint 15 installation and tricks

I have always been a Linux fanboy but it was not always sunshine and roses. Some distro's were just impossible to work with. Then Ubuntu came to prominence and as a fellow saffer and IBMer, at that time, with huge Linux interests I was fortunate enough to meet Mark a few times and hang with the Ubuntu team in London.

Then Ubuntu went weird. We understand convergence and making things easier to attract new users to Linux but removing vital functions alienated all but the most hardened Ubuntu fanboys. We also realise that Gnome 3.x was really to blame for the changes but what to do? You have to change with the times. I recently saw an interview with Mark where he showed the Ubuntu phone and it was really good and Unity worked well.

So, there is nothing wrong, per say, with Ubuntu and Unity. It is a preference thing and as I use Linux for my daily tasks I started looking around for alternatives as I was getting frustrated. I started playing with Linux Mint Lisa I was impressed. With Maya I was very impressed and even more so with Nadia. Today I am simply amazed with Olivia and what Clement Lefebvre and the team have accomplished with the Linux Mint fork.

Linux Mint works for me. It is nice, it is logical and it is feature rich. There are no lenses or Amazon stores or frustrating iconthings at the left and no purple anywhere.

My humble view is that this is the nicest Linux Distro by a mile. I will blog how to get the best from a system install. I have now upgraded most of my primary machines and so far all has gone very well. You can do an inplace upgrade but a re-install forces me to do housekeeping.

So here goes:

Firstly, I strongly recommend Mint 64. There is absolutely no reason not to install the 64bit version. If you machine is not capable then please stop reading and go and look for some YouTube videos of Richard Stallman and go and hipster something. I use a dual core and quad core cpu on motherboards I bought in 2008 and it (seems) every bit as fast as my ex-TP i7. Go figure.

Secondly, I think Cinnamon is much better than MATE. MATE is old school but it's your choice. Cinnamon removes the Gnome frustrations but keeps the good stuff. It is an excellent compromise.

Thirdly, for laptops use LVM and LUKS encryption, don't argue, just do it. For home machines, unless you are Mr, LVM and a password will suffice. I have published a few articles on two form factor encryption that also works well.

Create the USB boot disk. 

1. Please use the torrent link to download mint 15 and please seed it for a while. This helps with bandwidth. Note: not all torrents are bad.

2. Install unetbootin. USB Image Writer sucks a bit as it creates a very peculiar boot sector that some machines do not like and the boot sequence will fail. 

sudo apt-get install unetbootin

Don't bother with persistence although it is helpful to have some space on the USB to copy apt cache files etc. Any USB over 8 GB is a bit of a waste and you will have to create a less than 8 GB fat32 partition. My recommendation is to buy a cheap 8 GB USB and dedicate it to the Mint installer.

Install Linux Mint 15.

The install is very simple. I would recommend that you disconnect any other hard drives in your machine, by disconnecting the SATA cable,  to ensure you do not overwrite what you did not want to overwrite!

There are advantages to using LVM and again, as above, there is no reason not to.

* I live in Malaysia and the local Ubuntu cache servers sucks, Ubuntu MY Loco team I am looking at you now, so I set my locale to Singapore. This is far more reliable. However, the install does not always configure SG language settings correctly so I now just select London and then move the TZ later.

If you tell Mint to log you in automatically some applications will complain saying the keyring is not unlocked yet so you have to sign in anyway, doh!

The downside of the LVM install wizard is that the whole disk will be used. You can of course chose to manually carve the disk but that is a post for another day.

Update Linux Mint.

There are always updates to a distro no matter how recent the release. So click on the update icon, insert your password, update and RESTART! Linux is not windoze, it does not take two days to restart.

Installing the base applications. 

Here is the best trick ever. It requires a bit of work but is worth it. Dselect is an easy way to reinstall applicatios on a clean system. Apt is the better way but dselect works for me. To see what your source system has installed use this command:
To find out what is installed and create a better "packages" file you can use:
aptitude -F '%p' search ' !~i' 
To find out what is deselected use:
aptitude -F '%p' search '~ainstall !~i'
dpkg -l '*' | grep '^in ' | awk '{ print $2 " deinstall" }' 
To list your applications in a different way use:

zcat -f /var/log/dpkg.log* | grep "\ install\ " | sort

For the sake of simplicity just use dselect to save and restore applications.
*** Caveat. You need to manually edit this file. I remove any apps I am unsure off and I also delete all lib files as dpkg will go and get most of the dependencies for you.

sudo apt-get install dselect
sudo dselect update

Go to your old machine and run this in a terminal session.

sudo dpkg --get-selections > ~/Desktop/packages

Now edit the packages file and remove some stuff. In essence you want to install your favourite applications using the current OS with the correct dependencies. I have included my file that has most of the applications I can not live without.  When ready copy the packages file to the new target Desktop folder.

* if you are doing this to a few machines then it is best to copy the apt cache otherwise all files will be downloaded again. To do this you need root access on one of the machines that have been updated. So in a terminal session type this.

sudo -i
nemo &

This will spawn the Mint file manager. Use the file manager and go to /var/cache/apt/archives. Copy the contents to a USB drive or directly if you are using the SMB network or SSH connection to the same target location. When we run the install this cache will be queried first and if the correct file is found it will be installed.

Now for the fun bit. Currently you have a "virgin" machine with the standard apps installed. Here is how to pimp it out.

sudo dpkg --set-selections < ~/Desktop/packages && sudo apt-get -u dselect-upgrade

There will be a few prompts you need to answer but where it fails, like configuring mail, just select local or ignore.

This will take a while to complete but after a restart you will have a whole lot more applications to play with. You could also have moved your previous home directory first and then install the apps. This will keep all settings in tack. The good and the bad! My preference is to manually go through the . directories and copy what I need. This is a much cleaner way of setting up an initial new system.

Whoo hoo!

Here is my packages file. It works for me. It is what I need. I have added the file to give you an idea but I am not taking responsibility for your actions. :-)

  1. The last term you wrote about downloading the whole packages with short lines of commands is quite amazing and so cool~ yeap it is cool^^ I've been watching your posting more than 5 mins that it means i've read all your mentions about posting mint15Olivia-part1. I hope you let me see your next posting part2 about mint15Olivia.

  2. Very nice blog text!!!

    I have what I call black box with a mini ITX motherboard. No CD/DVD where I have Ubuntu installed.

    Like your comments I'm disappointed with Unity and also many core dumps I'm having with my configuration. I have 2 1 TB disks with LVM and a SDD for booting.

    I create a PXE configuration to boot memdisk with the whole ISO image for Mint 15 Cinnamon. But after all DVD is loaded into memory I can see Mint menu. Although it get stuck in any option since my sda and sdb are the LVM disks which for some reason cannot be accessed by Mint bootup.

    Do you have any direction for me?

  3. I love reading blogs and this is one of my most favorite blogs because I enjoyed a lot at this source thank you so much!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. Your opinion is important and of value and we appreciate the positive feedback! If you are "Negative Nancy" then please do us, and humanity, a favor, and piss off.
