Hi Papaoskar,

I was successful with a 16GB stick. It boots nicely, however I could persuade the stick to accept german language and keyboard. But no german for the system to apply system wide.


Did you try Install / Remove Languages in menu System > Preferences > Personal > Language Support > tab Language?

See change language settings to German in ubuntu MATE

How about producing an img file from the stick and then dumping that img to /dev/sdb8 ? Perhaps I have to go to ubuntu 12.4 and do the copying from there?


Could you please try rsync?

Please boot Ubuntu 12.04.5 and mount /dev/sdb8 and the ubuntu MATE 16.04 root partition on your USB thumb drive. After that please try out the command rsync.

For example:


  1. Code: Select all
    sudo mkdir /mnt2


  2. Code: Select all
    sudo mount /dev/sdd2 /mnt2
    (if that's the ubuntu MATE 16.04 root partition on your USB thumb drive)

  3. Code: Select all
    sudo mount /dev/sdb8 /mnt
    (the new root partition)

  4. Code: Select all
    sudo rsync -av --progress /mnt2/ /mnt/


  5. Code: Select all
    umount /mnt /mnt2

Thanks in advance,

Christian

Hi Christian,
many thanks for your patience and tips. I could solve my problem by a modified cp command.
As a proof I attach a screen picture: My Mate 16.04 from /dev/sda8 ! To be on the safe side I copied /dev/sda8 to /dev/sdb8 with ubuntu 12.o4.
The language problem was that one can drag down the top languages until German appears in the top line. My fault was to try to drag it up. That did not work! Now I know the trick. See picture.
BTW this was written on Mate 16.04 !!

Hi Christian.
Hopefully I remember from yesterday late correctly:
Start Ubuntu12.04
sudo su
mkfs -t ext4 /dev/sdb8
mount -t ext4 /dev/sdb8 /mnt
cp -a /media/Mate-1604-sda8/* /mnt

I hope that this correctly recalled. I have not proofed /dev/sdb8 as root directory. Still to be done.

Hi Christian,
Today I can confirm that booting from /dev/sda8 as well from /dev/sdb8 is possible!
However, keeping both systems at the same level regarding settings is a lot of work.
Which directories can I copy from one to another for that purpose?
Do you know of a program like freefilesync for Mate?
Are there known problems with updating the system? I get errors with the apt-souces.list .
How should the apt-sources.list look like?
Filezilla works nicely in my home network and abroad.

Great!

Not really. You have to update both systems sometimes. More not. ;-)

papaoskar wrote:Which directories can I copy from one to another for that purpose?


Maybe the directories Documents, Music, Pictures or something like that.

papaoskar wrote:Do you know of a program like freefilesync for Mate?


Yes, I do. Please try rsync. :-)

Could you please post the error messages?

Thanks,

Or do you mean the system settings like font size, themes, network settings etc?
