(SOLVED) Remove Manjaro xfce?
« on: February 09, 2019, 12:39:47 pm »
Hello I am running Peppermint 9 on my laptop and decided to install Manjaro xfce alongside Peppermint 9 to try it,I can't find my way around it like I can Peppermint so can someone please tell me how I can get rid of Manjaro and I am hoping I don't have to reinstall Peppermint as I have it just the way I like it?
Thank you.

UEFI or BIOS?

If BIOS, which distro is in control of GRUB? Do you get a GRUB menu from Peppermint or Manjaro?

Could you please post a screenshot of your partion layout on gparted?
The output of
Code: [Select]
sudo blkid
would help also.
Just say NO to flatpak and snap!!

Boot into Peppermint, and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and the contents of
Code: [Select]
xed /etc/fstab
make 100% SURE you're posting the above from within Peppermint.

[EDIT]

IGNORE THIS POSTING, and see the one here instaed
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,8041.msg82245.html#msg82245

[END EDIT]

Okay first thing you're gonna want to do is make sure Peppermint is controlling GRUB.

So boot into Peppermint and run the following 2 commands:
Code: [Select]
sudo grub-install /dev/sda
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
now you should be safe to install GParted:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gparted
and then use it to delete /dev/sda2 .. then to resize /dev/sda1 to fill the empty space.

Can you use GParted to change anything on sda while you're running an OS off it already?

You should be able to, as long as it's not mounted.

Always a good idea to have a LiveUSB pre-made though .. just in case.

 :-\ but, ...if he is running Peppermint its partition will be mounted and can not be resized. He can of course use gparted from within the Peppermint install to remove Manjaro. But, to resize Peppermints own partition he will need a live-usb.
Just say NO to flatpak and snap!!

Damn you're right .. oops  :-[

Okay let's redo that.....



Okay first thing you're gonna want to do is make sure Peppermint is controlling GRUB.

First create a Peppermint LiveUSB .. you're gonna need it later.

Now boot into Peppermint on the HDD in the normal way and run the following 2 commands:
Code: [Select]
sudo grub-install /dev/sda
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
Now you're going to need to boot to the LiveUSB you created earlier .. fire up Gparted, and then use it to delete /dev/sda2 .. then to resize /dev/sda1 to fill the empty space.

Then shut down, remove the LiveUSB and boot up the PC .. you should end up in Peppermint.

After you delete Manjaro, be sure to update GRUB again to remove the boot entries.

How do I create a live Peppermint usb please?
If I can't manage to follow all the instructions I will just do a clean install of Peppermint 9 again.
Thank you.

A live-usb is what you, most probably used to install the OS in the first place.
Anyway, download the install image and verify the md5sum/sha256sum. Insert an usb, right click the image you've just downloaded and choose create bootable usb. Let the operation finish and reboot from the usb.
Now, instead of install, choose 'Try Peppermint' and you're in the live system.
Ask again if something is unclear.
