Video #6 Added – System Controls in this lesson we will cover:
1) Start Up Items: Programs that are loaded as the computer starts up remain active in memory. Consequently, they are one of the main causes of a slow boot into Windows. Disabling programs you don’t often use from automatically loading up each time the computer powers on can decrease boot time.
2) Services: Same a programs too many Service starting up that are unnecessary will slow down your system. By identifying which services that need to be shut off at start up then shutting them up will speed up the performance of your computer.
3) Scheduled Tasks: In Glary Utilities you can schedule a Windows task to launch at a certain date and time. I will walk you through the steps how to schedule a task.
Glary Utilities is a PC performance optimization software designed for Windows, which helps businesses improve speed and fix errors, crashes, and other issues.
It includes nearly 30 different tools for the maintenance and optimization of your computer.
Like most system optimization tools, Glary Utilities has a button you can click that attempts to fix the most common problems that your computer may have. It has a Registry Cleaner, Shortcuts Fixer, Spyware Remover, Disk Repair, Tracks Eraser, Temporary File Cleaner, and Startup Manager, all rolled into one. If any problems are found, you can browse through them to see what Glary Utilities intends to do when you press Repair Problems.
Glary Utilities is a treasure trove of other useful functions that you never knew you needed. Some tools help you find duplicate files and empty folders, and others let you manage the entries in your system’s context menu and programs on your computer.
You can defrag your disks, optimize your RAM, and back up your system drivers. The Software Update tool informs you when new versions of your installed software are available, and there’s a great Disk Space Analyzer tool that will find the pesky files eating up your hard disk space.
There are 2 versions Glary Utilities Free & Glary Utilities Pro (Paid). In this Video series we will cover the free version.
Linux Mint has launched a new Linux Mint Debian Edition operating system. In short it is also known as LMDE. Code name for LMDE 5 is ‘Elsie’, it similar to Linux Mint but in place of Ubuntu. It is using Debian and its packages are provided by Debian instead of Ubuntu.
The main objective for launching this new LMDE OS is that it continues to offer the same user experience even if Ubuntu disappear. In other words, it will remove the dependency on Ubuntu.
In this guide, we will learn how to install Linux Mint Debian Edition 5 (LMDE) step by step with screenshots.
Minimum System Requirements for LDME 5
2 GB RAM or more
2 CPU Core or more
20 GB free hard disk space
Bootable Media (USB Stick)
Stable Internet connection (Optional)
Without any further delay, let deep dive into the installation steps.
Once the ISO file is downloaded then burn it into the USB stick and make it bootable.
2) Boot System with Bootable Media
Boot the system with bootable media, in our case it is USB stick. One might have to go to bios settings and set boot media as USB. Once system boots up, we will get the following screen,

6) Installation Type
In this step, we will decide partitioning scheme for LMDE. Here we have two options,
Automatic Installation – It will erase the disk and will create the partition automatically.
Manual Partitioning – It will give us an option to create manual partitions.
If you are new to Linux, then you should go with automatic installation. If you wish to create own customize partition, then choose 2nd option. In this guide, I will demonstrate how to create custom partitions by choosing ‘Manual Partitioning‘
We will get following screen when we click on Next,
Choose ‘Yes’ to erase the data on disk.
Here we edit the partition size and can also create new partitions. As you can see I have around 40 GB disk, I will create /home partition of size 25 GB but for that I have to resize / file system size to 12 GB.
So, choose / partitions and then click on ‘Edit partitions’
When we select ‘Resize/Move’ option, then we will get following window, specify the size as 12 GB ( or 12288 MB).
Click on ‘Resize/Move’.
Now click on tick symbol to apply the operation (means resizing the file system size)
Now Click on ‘+’ symbol to create a new partition,
Now mount 12 GB partition of / and 25 GB partition on /home,
Click on Next to proceed further with installation.
In the following window, choose the disk on which grub will be installed,
Choose Next then we will get the beneath screen, verify the summary and then click on ‘Install’ to start the installation.
7) LMDE Installation started
In this step, installation got started and is in progress.
Once the Installation is completed, we will be prompted to reboot the system.
Choose ‘Yes’ to reboot the system.
Note: Don’t forget to change the boot medium from USB to hard disk from bios.
8) Login Screen of LMDE 5 after installation
When the system boots up after the reboot, we will get following screen. Use the same user credentials that we have created during the installation.
