Re: gpu fan speed control linux nvidia wont stick

This sets up a fan control for Nvidia cards https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.leinardi.gwe or here https://gitlab.com/leinardi/gwe

I have got this set up on my machine but decided not to use the fan control as I had just bought a new card and didn't want to break anything on it.

Re: Change Panel icons, Solved.

No sorry, I don't know how to do this in Cinnamon. Maybe there's an equivalent to the TraditionalOK theme in the Cinnamon-themes ?

Re: Nvidia video card not recognized by software

I only have a single GPU so I'm not sure how to go about selecting an individual one when two are available. I know in Blender many people have multiple GPUs, some set for the viewport some for rendering. It's worth asking here https://blenderartists.org/ for tips on how to set up two cards. As to g...

Re: Nvidia video card not recognized by software

Not sure if it's still the case but I know there was a problem with the Blender version available from the package manager or software manager. If that's where you got Blender from then it might be worth downloading the latest version from the Blender website. There was, could still be, a problem wi...

Re: Change Panel icons, Solved.

Just as an update for anyone who wants to get their old icons back after having lost them with the Mint Mate 20 upgrade. The information for this was provided by the forum user SgtT, thank you sir, much appreciated. Go to Synaptic Package Manager and download mate-themes. Once installed select the n...

Re: Change Panel icons, Solved.

Re: Change Panel icons

I think I might have found the panel that may work Thanks for having a look at this. I tried your suggestion, using Mint Y-Blue for the controls, but there is no change. So I went through all of the controls themes but the horrible black icons persists no matter which theme I use. I'm running Mint ...

Re: Change Panel icons

Here you go for MATE menu>Preferences>Appearance>Theme Thanks for the info. For me the customisation of the icons changes all the icons to whichever theme I choose except for the update manager and volume icons, and it's these ones which I don't like. They're next to invisible when using a transpar...

In the search box at the top of the add to panel window I type in "Window" then select Windows List and click add. After that the open apps app...

Thanks for the info majpooper. I can't find the system-settings-themes-icons, it might be that you are running the cinnamon desktop and I'm running mate. It did make me have another look around though. In Mate right clicking on the menu button and choosing preferences and then click the button icon ...

Re: Change Panel icons

I still can't find any way to change the icons on the right of the panel either. The only thing I can do to make them more visible is to get ride of the transparency, which I don't want to do. For me these new icons have made the customisation of the panel obsolete, which is a shame.

Re: Change Panel icons

Thanks for the link, igmint.
It all looks quite complex and I'm running the Mate desktop so best to see if any info comes up for that one.

Wow! just noticed the near invisible orange dot that appears on the update manager icon for available updates. Seriously, the old icons were so much clearer.

Screenshot at 2020-07-12 14-12-16.png As the icons are black they don't show up very well against the dark desktop I use. S...

Re: Upgrading from GeForce GT 730 to GTX 1650 on Linux Mint machine

I recently did an upgrade from a GTX970 to a RTX2060, quite a leap in itself. I was already running the latest Nvidia driver available in driver manager and after installing the new card and firing up my Mint 19.3 the new card worked fine.
For me it was a seamless plug-and-play experience.

Re: R7 370 or GTX 950 - Which would Mint 19 prefer?

Not the same as the card you're looking to buy but I had a GTX 970 installed and that ran just fine on my 19.3 Mint Mate rig. I was using the latest Nvidia driver as listed in the driver manager.

Re: Can somebody help me install CUDA LM19.3, nvidia driver 435

I'm running Mint 19.3 and did have a GTX970. It wasn't necessary for me to install any extra software to get Blender to render using CUDA. If you are using the blender version from the mint package manager or download manger then you may need to install a file called modprobe, I had to install this ...

Hi all. I just installed a new RTX 2060 and noticed that the fans are constantly running when my machine is idling. Screenshot at 2020-04-24 09-50-49.jpg I assume this is how the card is set up by the manufacture but was wondering if it would be better to set the fans so they only operate when the c...

Turns out it was the power supply at fault and not the graphics card, so I can report the GTX 970 worked flawlessly on my Mate 19.3 system. I have also just installed an RTX 2060 and this also is workin...
