Got a new 2 TB drive that I put Mate on. Haven't figured out the
specific benefit of Mate, ergo I am going back to xubuntu. Problems:
1) I had a 512MB partition on the 2 TB drive and one more for Ubuntu
Mate. I tried to do a new install but I could not re-write sda1 (512
MB). No error messages, etc. Grrrrrrrr. I went back to the try it out
CD mode, and deleted the partitions sda1 and the rest, sda2. Then, ...
2) I rebooted and started the install (again), I set up the partitions
for 1, 2 and 3. When I got to 4, I tried to set up an "extended
partition" for all the others that I wanted. No option for extended, no
help, no error.
So here I am. Using a Windows O/S laptop to ask for Ubuntu help (ironic).
