Unable to save settings

beny raises a good point. If you are multi-booting, the menu you use to select the system to boot needs the changes= parm for Porteus not the porteus.cfg file. And for your ext partition I think changes=porteus/changes is all you need.

Sorry this is so confusing nnriyer.

Noob with Asus netbook

I'd recommend 2 GB for the system partition. I've never used ext* partitions. On my USB drive I use FAT32 and on my hard drive with it's NTFS partitions I boot ISOs.

For saving files, like pictures and music and etc, I would save them on a different partition.

Unable to save settings

On linux formatted partitions I thought the default location was the /porteus/changes/ folder and was automatic. On my system with ntfs partitions I use a change code like this: changes=EXIT:/porteus5.0/changes/porteussave.dat with the /porteus5.0 folder on the root partition and the porteussave.dat...

Hello Peter.

a. Yes
b. Yes

a+ Depending on the directory structure of the Mint 20 system you might be able to install Porteus to the same partition. The key to either approach is making the netbook multibootable.

@Ed_P, you can change this setting in Nemo: Edit > Preferences > Behavior > Executable text files
Thank you fulalas. :good:
Enabling the Executable Text Files' Ask each time option does what I am use to in Cinnamon. Maybe a default in older versions cause I don't remember changing the option?

EDIT: also: porteus 4.0 is based on 14.2, so would be more likely to work with your packages.. :o Really! I thought it was based on 14.1. This is what I see if it's any help.
