About Me Changes Don't Stick and Additional Drivers No Show

Postby harpo1 on Tue May 17, 2011 5:16 pm

New to linux and need a little help. I installed Linux Mint 10 Debian along side windows 7 on my ASUS UL80VT. Everything seems fine except the graphics are terrible and the About Me option doesn't save changes I make to it. As a matter of fact as soon as I go back in the fields are blank.

As far as graphics go I went into menu/admin and was looking for the additional drivers option and it's not there? My ASUS UL80VT Laptop uses the Nvidia G210M. Is there a package or something I can install to get the additional drivers option back?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If I had Nvidia I would be able to help you more, Try searching synaptic for Nvidia there should be drivers in there, the open source ones should however already be active.
