Hi.
I'm new here. Does anyone have a very pedagogical "dummies" step-by-step manual for installing Trisquel in the various ways installing can be done?
It really must be very concrete. :) I know it is a part of the libre world to think and find out by yourself, but I must confess I'm a quite lost newbie.
(I have a libre T400 and a libre X200, and they both got Trisquel when they were lib(r)erated). It would be great to be able also to tell friends how they can install Trisquel on their proprietary pc's to get used to it before they hopefully go libre.
Thanks a lot - MFal

I do not think "it is a part of the libre world to think and find out by yourself". At least, it is not a core value: there is not wrong in requiring/getting help.

If anything, cooperation is a core value, so helping each other is
encouraged.

The "Something else" type of installation is certainly not the easiest... although it is the one I always do, because I know what is a root partition, a swap partition, a filesystem, etc. and what are reasonable dimensions. The "newbie" does not. Are the defaults bad?
