NVidia GeForce 4mx Problem

Postby bumperduck on Tue Jan 13, 2009 4:20 am

I installed LinuxMint on an Dell Optiplex GX270 with an Nvidia GeForce 4mx DVI AGP video card (64MB) and if I turn the visual effects up to get the desktop cube, fonts are all messed up in OpenOffice. I tried installing AWN and it was a no go also. When I installed, I'm using the default NVidea driver through EnvyNG, is there an easy fix to this or am I stuck with 2D graphics?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If your Dell currently runs on Mint 6, try to replace it with Mint 5 Main. The earlier version of Linux Mint works better with older hardwares.
