I am quite new to Linux but I've been using another distro which is KDE based for a couple of months. I have now installed Mint as I've heard such good things.
Everything went o.k. till it came to setting up my graphics card and monitor. Nvidia 6600gt and compaq tft. Initially it went to 1024x768 at 75Hz but a s soon as I tried to use Nvidia drivers installed using envy, all I can get is 480x640@50Hz and it won't recognize the monitor as a TFT. I did not have this problem with the other distro.
