i have used Linux in the past. Ubuntu and mint mostley. I just recently tried to dual boot my Win7 machine with Mint 14. This turned out to be a nightmare as, for whatever reason, now my Windows won't boot. No problem. I can still get to all my files on that partition and run them in Mint. Well, I have had one problem after another trying to get alll my devices working in Mint 14. My biggest issue is dual screens. I am using an AMD/ATI radeon 6450 graphics card and it wont detect my panasonic 50 inch at all with HDMI. It shows 2 monitors when I have the HDMI cable hooked up, but not the correct one. I have tried configuring my Nvidia-Xserver settings, but its givinng me a driver error. Everytme I go to use the terminal it tells me permission denied. This is very frustrating and I don't want to give up on Linux. If anybody can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
