linux mint 18.1 cinnamon
« on: February 05, 2017, 03:12:19 pm »
i have just switched over from windows to linux mint 18.1 cinnamon, its ok, but have just discovered peppermint 7 and would like to use that, the thing is do i have to install everything from scratch or can it be done from within the terminal, if anyone has an idiots guide i would be grateful, i have looked on youtube and no one seems to show videos about moving from distro to distro.

Not from Mint to Peppermint, no. You'd have to do a fresh install and it's not a good idea to use the same Home partition. Back up anything you need first, of course :)
