Saving Gparted Live screenshots in a specific folder


To make it short, how do I specify where screenshots are saved in Gparted Live? It obviously doesn't do me any good if I 'save' them to the DVD and thereafter can't retrieve them.

Plug in a spare USB flash drive and save them there. Or save them to the hard drive.
If you have a linux operating system installed on the hard drive, you might have trouble saving them in some locations due to ownership problems - in Linux Mint there is a folder which is configured to be accessible to any user - /var/tmp
That is where I save files when using a live DVD.

Thank you. Actually, part of why I'm using GParted is because I have a Mint installation that won't boot.

If it is a problem with Grub, I have fixed Mint installations with no working Grub many times.
Here is what I would do - boot my Rescatux/SuperGrub2 CD, SuperGrub2 boots my installed OS for me, I run "sudo update-grub" and "sudo grub-install /dev/sda". It is all quick and simple.
If you want to try the Rescatux/SuperGrub2 CD, here are some details:
Download Rescatux http://www.supergrubdisk.org and burn it to a CD.
Boot the computer with the Rescatux CD. When Rescatux starts you will get a menu to start Rescatux or SuperGrub2. The SuperGrub2 option is the one you want. After chosing SuperGrub2, the next menu will give the options of booting any installed operating system on your computer ("Detect any Operating System") or any loop mountable iso files ("Detect loop bootable ISO's"). When you chose the "Detect any Operating System" menu item, the program will search your drives for your installed operating systems and create a menu for you that will allow you to boot any one of them. It will be a slow process to search your drives and create that menu, so be patient and let it complete.
Then after you boot Mint run the following commands in a terminal:
Code:
sudo update-grub
Code:
sudo grub-install /dev/sdX
- where X is the drive you want to install Grub to. (The drive Mint is on. sda? sdb?)
