Try this for the LXDE version:

Code:
wget "http://linuxfreedom.com/linuxmint/linuxmint.com/stable/11/linuxmint-11-lxde-cd-32bit.iso"

Thank you. Can I keep what I have downloaded of the non-lxde version as I download the lxde version, just in case?

So then to recommence manual download for the lxde version I would run this, correct?:


wget -c "http://linuxfreedom.com/linuxmint/linuxmint.com/stable/11/linuxmint-11-lxde-cd-32bit.iso"


Does the "-c" stand for "continue"?

And how do I quote a portion of a post, giving its source?

Yes. From the wget manual:

Code:
       -c
       --continue
           Continue getting a partially-downloaded file.  This is useful
           when you want to finish up a download started by a previous
           instance of Wget, or by another program.  For instance:

                   wget -c ftp://sunsite.doc.ic.ac.uk/ls-lR.Z

           If there is a file named ls-lR.Z in the current directory, Wget
           will assume that it is the first portion of the remote file, and
           will ask the server to continue the retrieval from an offset
           equal to the length of the local file.

When I press the quote button, the whole post appears in the reply window. I expected that when I selected a portion of the post before pressing the quote button that only the selected text would appear in the reply window, but not so. The whole post appears in the window even though I have selected only some of it.

Just edit out the portion you don't want.

I have the Acer Aspire One A110l (modified to use SATA 2.5" hdd)
Getting rid of Linpus was the best thing I ever did!
I recommend that you upgrade your ram at some point! Just make certain that when you do, you get the 533Mhz DDRII ram because the faster rams won't scale down.
Lxde Mint is a good choice for this machine, although I can say from experience that it ran well with Ubuntu! (up to Maverick after that I started using Crunchbang)

I finished downloading linux mint 11-lxde. It's about 700 MB.

I opened unetbootin in root, the device name showed, I clicked on the image bullet, entered:

/home/user/downloads/linuxmint-11-lxde-cd-32bit.iso

into the ISO window

clicked ok.

It started to copy the file, then after a couple of seconds it stopped and asked if I wanted to reboot or quit.

I then checked the stick and it was virtually empty still. There were five small files in it:

ldlinux.sys
menu.c32
syslinux.cfg
ubnfile1.txt
ubnpathl.txt

Before I knew the stick was virtually empty I tried to reboot with it and it said "missing operating system" and booted with linpus as usual.

Any comment?

The stick should only contain about 700MB.
But you will have to change the boot order in your BIOS. You can do this by pressing F2 just after power-on. Select boot options, highlight the USB stick, use F5 to move it to the top of the list!

That's fine, but what about the stick not having the full 700 MB on it? The files window says 3.7 GB available out of 3.7 GB. Unless the stick has the full mint OS on it the reboot is going to fail.

But by the way--the reboot as it is gives me three options, one of which is the USB drive. I would think that would do the trick, without having to reorder them.

It does, indeed look like unetbootin is not playing nicely with your USB stick.

Given the trials and tribulations of dealing with unetbootin and Linux Mint, both of which are fine products, and both of which I've used on my Aspire One in the past, let me throw out an alternative Linpus replacement path: Fedora LXDE spin. Fedora is not without its disadvantages; (1) the two most significant being support for a new release lasts only 13 months or so, and (2) it's not the most noobie-friendly distro. On the other hand, Fedora-LXDE's iso file can be directly (and very, very easily) copied to a 1GB or larger USB stick using just the dd command; no fuss, no muss. Furthermore, it works well - I've been running Fedora-LXDE spin as the primary distro on my Aspire One for about a year and a half now.

I'm not recommending that you give up on Linux Mint yet, just keep in mind that there are alternatives (including distros other than Fedora that will allow you to use dd to create a bootable flash drive).

Ok, I'd like to continue to work on mint for now. It took me a week to download it so I want to do what I can to make good on it.

So here I am, looking bewildered.

Does anyone have any ideas for troubleshooting unetbootin?

I'm wondering if a different version of unetbootin might be needed. I understand there is a version 299. The one I am using is 555.
