comment Cannot boot laptop after copying partitions to new HDD
Note that is is possible to copy (cp -a) all of / from a / partition, and then all of /home to the same partition (in /home directory, of course). System works perfectly. Just /etc/fstab to change.

The problem was the GPT. I wiped the new disk, and setup as ms-dos partition table. Now everything works fine.

comment Cannot boot laptop after copying partitions to new HDD
I don't like the idea of copying to $HOME/oldstuff. Especially for all the personnal configuration files in ~/.* directories and files. A want to keep them.

That's also how I usually proceed. However, here the SDD is half the HDD. Therefore, I didn't want to copy the Windows portition, neither the Dll restore blah blah stuff. Just Linux / and /home.

@Serg Do you think it could work, if after install I copy all files, I mean all files recursively from / from the old install to the new one?

Yes, thanks, that's one of the things I'll have to do. But I'm not there yet ! I first have the computer to recognize there's an OS on the SSD.

comment How can I see tty during shutdown?
@Rinzwind had already seen 33416, but I'd like to see what is on the screen right now, not the screen of a future shutdown.

comment Editing gsettings; add icon to launcher by command
@Jacob, @jasmines This does not work in a chroot environment. gsettings says twice ** (process:10439): WARNING **: The connection is closed, but does not change the value (get still returns the old one). Any hint about this? Isn't this value stored in a plain text file somewhere?
