At the bottom is a link to a picture of what I'm talking about. Essentially I decided to try Linux Mint yesterday instead of Ubuntu, I've heard good things about cinnamon and nemo and therefore wanted to try it. After I installed it I went to set up my video card, it was working in Ubuntu so didn't think I'd have much problems with it. I open up the terminal to install the proprietary drivers and I get this problem. So I ask on the linuxmint-help and they point me to this tutorial
. So I purge my installation and follow that, reinstalled via repos same result, purge again, build from source, same result. So now I'm at a loss of what else to do. I've asked for help in linuxmint-help and aside from the link nobody has answered so maybe somebody here will know, also have to leave and therefore can't monitor the irc channel waiting for a reply. A little bit about my system, it's an old AMD Athlon 3800+, with 2GB of RAM, and an Radeon HD 6450 installed(for multi monitor display). Here
is the link of my desktop. The first picture is with the Drivers installed but the two monitors are cloned, I like the menu and what it does. The second picture is with the monitors extended so it's one big display, I don't like the menu and nothing appears to have changed but the displays are extended instead of cloned. Hopefully somebody can help. Thanks!
