Noob here: Where is /mnt?

1 hour 54 min ago

Long story short. I’m a windows user who dual booted with Mac and have clover as a boot loader. The only way to remove it is by deleting the clover folder in the EFI partition but I can’t boot into Mac so I can’t mount that partition. I stuck Ubuntu onto a USB and mounted the EFI partition but as /mnt because of a guide I followed but how can I access the partition to delete that folder? Thank you guys.

Any suggestions on tablets to put Linux on - will be E-reader mainly plus streaming and surfing.

Tue, 2017-11-21 23:02

Distro I'd like Fedora with GNOME. Not sure if there is a version more suited for tablets but I figure just the basic desktop release would work? I run Fedora on everything else.

Lenovo 4 10 any good? I need something not too pricey. I need something to read books on mainly.

Bonus question: Which program to read ebooks?

how often do you use the mouse as a vim/vi user?

Tue, 2017-11-21 22:11

I've been using nothing but vim and other applications with vi like key bindings like luakit and i3 for the past month and I've just noticed that I barely use my mouse anymore. Has anyone else noticed this and is this something I'll just grow more accustomed to using applications with vi like key bindings?

What's your favourite tool for making presentations?

Tue, 2017-11-21 17:49

When making presentations I still haven't found a good balance between productivity and quality of output. I'm interested to see what everyone else uses.

I've tried LaTeX/beamer, and some html/js thing whose name I can't remember, but the trouble with both of those is the difficulty in laying out pictures. The "rules" for laying out pictures in presentations isn't as formal as for documents, so LaTeX isn't really suited for that role.

Any suggestions? I haven't actually tried LibreOffice, it's next on my list, just wanted to make sure I'm not missing anything else.

What are the default backup programs of prominent distros?

Tue, 2017-11-21 16:16

I know that Ubuntu uses Deja Dup and Linux Mint recently switched to Timeshift.

What do some of the other distros ship, if at all?

Is there any good foss video editors?

Tue, 2017-11-21 15:42

Kdenlive and openshor are either not powerful enough or way too cumbersome. Blender is the closest thing I found but still doesn't match premier in terms of ease of use. I'm sure I can get used to it, but it seems pretty orthogonal to most other editors I've used. Anyone know of a good alternative?
