  1. HI Joe, Since I'm running Linux Mint I can use USB prgs to work with my USB Flash Drive – with that said – TY for the great tips that you passed along and TY for the good stuff you are now doing. See Ya next year! 馃檪

  2. I was wondering if u have done a video on installing a Linux system on a raid 0 array. I have a 2 tb raid that currently has that God awful windows 10 on. Would love to have mint xfce on it.

  3. Thanks for the useful info. Wanted to ask if you could make a video on wifi in Mint with a focus on installing those usb adapters that seem so popular. Been trying to install an EDUP-1607 in my rig without success and what few instructions I can find don't seem to work. I'm a noob with Linux so my knowledge of networking is severely limited. Thanks and happy new year.

  4. A nice video Joe.
    I like the disk utility. sometimes it is even better than gparted to recognize thumbdrives.
    I have one add-on for the dd command. Before giving the command as you did I ask the size of the .iso files with ls -l.
    If then you give the dd if=/….iso of=/dev/sdc (in your case) and add the option status=progress to the end of the command. It tells you how much of the .iso image has been transfered so far. Without you wondering : has it started yet or when will it be finished. This option was added about for years ago.

  5. Another great video and esp like the dd command. Have a friend that wants Mint 18.3 and I will have to install the codex manually to the USB as he has no Internet at this time. If I ever find out how to do it, he will get 18.3 on his PC. Merry Christmas Joe!

  6. Dude you are a mind reader! Been thinking about asking for this video for a couple weeks now! Thanks so much! It brings comfort to my mind getting these instructions from you rather than some random forum that may not be addressing the same goal. Sorry to hear this is the last "Linux Tip" video, but thanks again for all of your help!

  7. Another way : Format your USB stick in fat32 with gparted . Then open the ISO archive with "disk image mounter " in linux mint .
    Once mounted iso has shown all the files . copy and paste all the content to the USB stick . Voil脿 to the new bootable USB stick .

  8. I like to recommend Etcher too which is not just extremely user friendly but also works across the three major operating systems of our time.
    So it's also suitable to those who wanna create live media for whatever reasons.

    Also, thanks for making these vids!
    Even for advanced users those can be really handy at times.
