lately I have been working a lot on my desktop computer, 3 months, leaving behind my laptop. I've been using Ubuntu Karmic Koala a lot, working with many applications and installing lots of useful software. When the new year will begin I will have to hit the road again and leave behing my desktop. That's a pity since I'm enjoying my setup a lot. So I was wondering if is it there a way to transfer all my Linux setup on my laptop, with all the same settings (except hardware of course) and applications (libraries, development tools...). I thought of just copying the partition with clonezilla but I even asked myself if this will actually work. Then there is the not so secondary problem that I'd have to shrink the partition. So, do you have advice on this?
Happy new year to all :D
