I'm kinda new to linux and need some help to get started and hope you could help me out.
I've installed Mint now for the first time and installed the graphic drivers for my nVIDIA GeForce 8800GT (compiled from source) and it works great, except one things. For some reason I cant turn on visual effects it just tells me "Desktop effects could not be enabled" and turn back to normal. Anyway to fix this?
And now to my biggest problem the audio.
I've have a on board audio witch by the manufacturer should be a Realtek ALC883 but mint detect it as a ALC662 and then the audio out works great but I cant use the microphone.
I've also tried to compile the drivers from Realtek but thats just break everything and no audio device is found anymore.
I'm really need the microphone to work because I use skype for all my phone calls.
The mother board is a ASUS P5GC-MX/1333
Thanks in advance.
