    This is my first post:

    In class last night, trying to install the new Mint 17 with Windows 7 as a dual boot and making grub the boot loader.

    1st: you need to log into windows and go to ‘All Programs’ ‘Accessories’ then right mouse click on ‘Command Prompt’ and Run As Administrator.

    Once the command windows opens type in the following command. chkdsk /f c: and hit enter. Since the drive is in use answer Yes to the question and reboot the machine back into windows and this will fix any disk errors.

    2nd: While still in Windows, follow this link to see how….

    3rd: Now start your new Live-CD or USB Linux and select the Install now icon on the desktop. Follow this link to see how to make the partitions.

    Any questions email at

    Libreoffice just released there newest version of the Open Office Suite. Seems they keep making load a bit faster on each release. Mainly but fixes but works great.

    You can download it from and pick your *.deb (x86 32 bit or x84 for 64 bit machines)

    Next unzip and put the DEBS directory into your Home Directory.

    If you want to upgrade and still have the default version that came with your distro, open your Synaptic Package Manager and search for libreoffice and mark all packages that are installed and do a (Mark for Removal) then apply.

    Next do the following commands from a terminal window:
    cd /home/bob/DEBS remember to change bob to your home directory.
    now enter sudo dpkg -i *.deb and hit enter. This will install Libreoffice. When finished delete the DEBS folder from your home directory. (Takes up 200 mb of room)

    If you had a short cut on your desktop you will need to trash it and go to the menu button then to office and next add the Libreoffice shortcut to the desktop.

    Thats it. Not really all that bad to install. Now your running the newest version of Libreoffice.

    Any questions let me know.
