Can't Enable Visual Effects Extras!

Postby Kold Foot on Wed Jun 03, 2009 11:02 am

I installed Mint 7 on my computer and for some reason I can't enable the Extras in the Visual Effects tab. I have the restricted hardware drivers (180) for my video card (nvidia 8400 gs) installed. Can anyone help?

I think I'm going to reinstall LM7 and wait till I've implemented all of the normal updates and then install the Nvidia drivers last and see if this fixes the problem.

In the interim I've found a solution. It is called Elyssa LTS.
