Mint installed fairly well, but I am having a few issues.
First, my sound is spotty. I have a custom computer with no sound card. Instead I use USB headphones for the sound. On Ubuntu, this causes a lot of issues (namely the sound will crash completely and freeze my mouse until I restart), but on LMDE it just causes on major issue: it doesn't hold my defaults. I set the headset to be the default instead of the on-board sound, but every so often this will revert to the on-board, and I have no speakers hooked up. How can I make USB the default? Ubuntu Help while at it: On my desktop version of Ubuntu, I can run audio without static for a while, then it gets severely distorted. The sound will usually go mute. Sometime after (though not completely dependent on the sound issue) my USB mouse will freeze up while my keyboard (USB) will work. Restarting fixes it, but obviously this is not a great way to operate. On my laptop of Ubuntu, sound has a smaller level of distortion, usually on Pidgin. Any troubleshooting suggestions?
My other issue is I have two nVidia cards in SLi mode. I am not sure how to activate them on Mint. On Ubuntu, I did it with the nVidia X Server settings, I believe, but in Mint, it doesn't have that option. Also, on a similar note, Compiz isn't working like it should. As a test, I added on "wobbly windows," but when I exit and restart, there are no wobbly effects despite still being checked off. Obviously none of the other settings works in compiz as well.
Thanks for any help, and I am looking forward to contributing to LMDE in the future.
