I'm in the process of switching most of our home Ubuntu (12.04.3) machines over to Linux Mint 16, primarliy so I don't have to hear the fans spin up so much. (I like Ubuntu, and even Unity, but the Unity interface needs to go on a diet. Under Mint/Cinammon 2 the fans rarely spin up, and the load averages are lower.) The changeover has gone pretty smoothly, thanks to separate /home partitions... ...but on one machine, some "old" BitTorrent Sync (hereinafter BTS) files, hidden somewhere, are giving me fits. It was the first machine on which I installed BTS, and the only one on which I installed it with passwords. The reinstall under Linux Mint "remembers" that it's supposed to have a password; but it's not the password LastPass remembers (and I never changed it). So I'm guessing that unless I can completely uninstall BTS, removing every reference to it, I don't see how I can get a good, unencumbered install. And, shades of Murphy's Law, all the important Sync-able files find their home on this machine. It figures! While I'm open to getting help from and anyone and everyone, I'm betting (based on his other posts) that @tuxpoldo will have a quick fix for this. Thanks in advance!
