FS Li1718 - Dumby qestions

Postby murky on Sun Jun 15, 2008 6:06 pm

Hello there, I´m quite "Linux-noob" and as Noob I have some Nooby questions :oops:

...1) I know, that my graphics card IS slow, but...i have got a feeling, tahat it is even slower on Linux, than on my former Wistas...I´ve installed driver from program "EnvyNG" and for example, when i close big window (i´ve got Desctop effect "Fire"), the fire is really slow and disappears in lags...Is my graphics card on its limits, or IS there any faster driver?
....2) Maybe it´s the same thing as NO.1. ... Videos are reeeallly slow and (i don´t know, if word like this exist) it´s lagging...I didn´t install any codecs (but they are supposed to be in Mint...) On Vista, even HD videos worked...i don´t know, if it has something to do with graphics card, codecs or what...
....3) Wi-Fi...When I was following guide I found on this forum, Terminal told me, that that program supports only older versions...And I don´t want to be bound by cable ;-)

...I know...Dumb questions...but it is somehow...problematic for me, as man, who never worked with Linux, but likes it and wants to work only with it :) :wink:
...Oh yes...and...I don´t know how good I´m in English, so dont blame me about some bad constructions ;-)

What kind of graphics card is it? Someone here might be able to help you, but will need to know your hardware information first.
