Regarding my "drive removal" post. As I continued to research today, I "discovered" my entry into the world of Linux. I was shocked (embarrassed) to find when I created the partitions, unknown to me (til now evidently), a New Volume was created. The thread where I made today's discovery can be viewed over at the Kubuntu forum (see link below). So to those who viewed the thread and to those who were helping me, I give you my sincerest Thanks and apology. You are all encouraged to laugh along with me. Thanks folks.

You've got me confused - link you provide links to a thread with 4 pages, 40 entries, dated 20/12/15 - is that correct?

I think he meant to post a link to this thread:

https://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthread.php?70318-Can-t-Remove-Drive

This would be the relevant post:

https://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthread.php?70318-Can-t-Remove-Drive&p=388991&viewfull=1#post388991

...which happens to contain a link to the thread he posted a link to in the OP.

Thanks guys. I really messed it up today. I should go back to a rotary phone and smoke signals. Thanks again.

@bamashooter:

 

This Topic (depending on the Mods) may have to move soon, or else be closed, unless it incorporates further technical issues.

 

That is a matter for staff to determine, but if moved elsewhere eg General, you have a few subscribers now if you wish to pursue your train of thought.

 

As for my two cents? -

 

Any action or move to expand your horizons, to see possibilities outside of the biggest Distro in the world, to exploring the home of the biggest number of Distros in the world ... is to be commended.

 

Take a look at Brian's (Condobloke's) (new) signature. For inspiration. I followed a similar path two years ago, after 25 years with M$, and a number of others here have, too.

 

I look forward to hearing of your continued adventures with Linux, and we don't treat people like pariahs if they wish to dual-boot, lol.

 

Cheers

 

:wizardball: Wiz

 

Note to self - gotta get me a cerebral signature like Brian's.

Thanks. I just wanted to bring folks up to date with that particular issue and to thank everyone for their replies. What I didn't like was for folks who were kind enough to want to help yet as it turned out, there was no problem at all; only my ignorance of Linux. I really like my Kubuntu 14.04 but boy, I am lost in the dark with it. The thread can be moved or closed, just felt the need to create the short thread.

Kubuntu 14.04 is a beast, a lot for a beginner.  "Mint Mate" or "Mint KDE" might be better if you even decide to change.

Try not to let the situation develop where you become disillusioned with the whole 'linux' thing......it is easy to just drop it and head back to windows.

 

If you are thinking that way (i did when i attempted to run peppermint 6)....simply "flick" the current 'distro'(kub14.04) and head for something that will have a slightly more familiar feel to it.....pcpunks suggestions are cool...mebbe even linux mint (I have linux mint cinnamon)

 

You will know you are 'at home' when the distro feels like second nature....and sound problems and printer problems etc ... just do not happen
