You really should just use Manjaro or Arco. Seriously, don't get out of your experience level here. If you aren't able to use Gparted you shouldn't be trying to use MX. AT ALL.

 

Oh look, documentation. 

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Parted

 

The ArchLinux Wiki is valid for ALL Arch-based distros. Read this. Understand it.

 

Don't use MX. It's for advanced users. Not people who think they're 'leet but can't find their way around Gparted ... :glare:

 

... and yes, you've likely hosed your previous install already. Way to go.

Not a great attitude on your part....could have handled that much better.

He is right, you maybe think its "attitude" but he is straight to the point.

It doesn’t matter if he is right or not. It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. This very attitude is what scares people off from Linux, the whole “omg, rtfm noob” attitude is old hat. 
 

Also, MX is for advanced users? 🤣

I never tried MX, but according to OP level (maybe?)

I can't say that I've used MX, but from taking a look at the website it looks like any other pre-built distribution of Linux, it doesn't seem like anything particularly advanced. What makes you say that?

Having used it, I haven’t found it particularly any more challenging than say Ubuntu or Fedora.

I have a couple of book recommendations for the OP to look into...

 

Fundamentals of Linux

Linux All-In-One For Dummies, 6th Edition - I personally have one of these books, got quite a good use out of it as it covers a wide range of topics

It's just the way he feels about it. There's no real truth. I think the MX site just "makes it sound" easier. You can see "for beginnners" in a lot of different distros...

 

And thank you, Matthew...

Once he builds he knowledge he can go for a distro such as Gentoo or even try an LFS system... (I'm not even that daring,  nor do I have the patience for it lol)

god, getting slightly off topic but I've tried building a Gentoo install a few times and have never succeeded and I'd consider myself pretty good with linux lmao

Arch is as far down that rabbit hole I am willing to go. I built Gentoo once. It sucked.

Gentoo doesn't have support like Arch does.

 

If you want to go down the rabbit hole, but still have a magic carpet under you, I can suggest Arcos. I had it on this computer until I went back to Mint.

I remember DSL; hadn't touched it in years and almost forget about it lol

 

looks like it hasn't been updated since 2008 though so I'd consider it a 'use at your own risk' distro or on something that's never going online
