I've been going between Windows, Mint, and Ubuntu on separate computers for about a month now, and now I want to make my main computer Xubuntu. I've seen plenty of resources of how to get everything set up with two hard drives (I have an SSD and HDD) with the initial OS installation, but am not sure about where to install certain programs and such.
For example on Mint, every time I install something I do "sudo apt-get 'whatever'", and everything is pretty much automatic. If I have two hard drives, how would I specify which drive to install to? Also, should I be worried about which hard drive (OS vs. extra volume) I install programs to? For example, if I installed g++ on the extra volume would it matter? Also, do I need to be worried about certain dependencies not being on the OS drive?
