Writing this note to thank the LMDE crew. The update process took some time (did a dist-upgrade as advised) but everything is still running as it was before.

AND...

NVidia Twinview works again and is automatically detected !! Many thanks indeed guys !!! :D

No TV. I've got a dell m4500 with also a dell monitor connected on the vga port. With which twinview now is automatically switched on.

There seems to be no noticable cpu hog. It just when switching between programs/tabs/... that there's a one second time lag. As though the screen image had been buffered somewhere and is being pulled back in.

I guess there's still work to do on nvidia integration. :-)

But apart from this lag, I've got no complaints. It's clear a lot of effort was made - when seeing the difference with UP4.

Oh wait ! The progress dialog of DejaDup is totally black. :-)

Thanx for your reply...

Hmmm, one second is quite some lag imo, depending on your hardware of course... Drivers are definitely unstable...

It wasn't in UP4. But it might be a coincidence of course - a problem for this particular version of the driver.
