I've done that, selecting "use as" Ext 4.  When I click "Install now" I get message "No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu".  How do I do that?

Highlight /dev/sda5 and click Change, choose to format on /. Leave the rest.

Sorry to bother you again, but I need more advice about reinstallation.

I want to keep Windows and replace the existing corrupt Linux Lite in its existing partition.  I'm now reinstalling, but it does not give me this as a standard option:



When I select the first option, it tries to set up another partition to install LL alongside the existing LL and Windows.  The third option takes me to:



At this point, I am out of my depth.  What should I do to replace the existing LL installation?

It won't be a problem in the next release. But it is Google, they can change their mind at anytime. Cheers.

I've now found that I have a 32-bit processor, so I can't install 64-bit Linux Lite and set up Google Drive sync through Grive, which is a issue for me.  I assume that this will still be a problem with the next release of LL, or are you aware of any developments that may solve it?

In the meantime, I'll reinstall the 32-bit.

When you do the new install it will ask you how you want to proceed. Although my advice is not to bother with this Google Drive until it is properly supported later this year.

Thanks Valtam, I'll have a go at that.  I've just one concern at this stage.  I want to keep Windows installed - how do I get rid of the old Linux Lite installation and install the 64bit version in the same partition?  I'm new to all this and a bit nervous about messing about with partitioning and reformatting, so I need advice that assumes no prior knowledge.

I see, yeh that is unfortunately not the correct way to install it. SyncDrive support site is closed and it can't pull files, so it won't work. Your system looks all kind of messed up now. You're better off reinstalling, takes all of 10 minutes, you will have to use the 64bit version of Linux Lite as there is no 32bit support on ubuntu based distros offering 12.04 LTS, then use this guide to install Google Drive: http://thefanclub.co.za/node/151 This will be much better supported mid 2014 when the next major release of Linux Lite comes out. For now, it is all rather messy.

As I recall, I double-clicked on it in the Downloads directory, which launched the package installer.

Thank you for using imgur. What instructions did you use to install SyncDrive?

Got it - sorry Valtam.

These are the images on Imgur:

A bit more information - the package that was already installed on LL but was reported by the package installer as an unsatisfiable dependency was:  libjson0_0.9-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
