SD Card Reader Not Working - HP ENVY dv6t-7300

Postby SipSomeSalt on Thu Apr 04, 2013 10:11 pm

Hello, guys!

I'm very new to Linux Mint -- I'm switching from Ubuntu 10.04(12.04)LTS. I can't seem to get my SD reader to read my card. Does anyone have any experience with this, and is anyone able to walk me through installing said drivers?

Thanks so much!!

EDIT: I'm running LM 14 Nadia MATE

I found the solution to this common problem -- https://chriscase.cc/2013/01/linux-mint-13-enabling-the-sd-card-reader-on-the-toshiba-satellite-p870/

This is for the Realtek model.
