It does seem creating those partitions was a waste of time. When I installed ubuntu the way I was pretty sure I was supposed to, it allowed me to choose a partition one time and installed the swap and grub all on its own. Oh well. It's all on there and seems to be working fairly well. I've messed around in both and both are up to date.
I do have a problem with the Ubuntu installation though. After it was installed, a text window popped up talking about updates. I went through that whole process and everything seemed to go well until it went to restart. It froze. I waited a LONG time before I finally just hit the power button and then restarted it. Everything appeared to still be working, and still does more or less.
Except for an error message I keep getting... I'll go search it myself in a few minutes but I figured I might post about it here.
On a few occasions, while opening certain programs(just opened firefox) this error pops up saying ubuntu has experienced an internal error. Clicking to get more details it says something like
unity-scope-shotwell crashed with IOError in copyfile():[Errno 2] No such file or directory:'/home/username/.shotwell/data/photo.db'
There are more details below that but they don't seem as important. I can post them if I need to.
Edit: There are not a ton of exact matches for the searches I'm doing. I did find one that is quite specific to the problem I'm having.
It is Ubuntu Christian Edition (UCE). That topic was from August 2012. Someone said they were making a patch for it but, I saw no mention of where or anything.
You can see the person does give a step that should resolve the error, or make it go away or something but, I'm not sure I follow it.
