Re: Linux mint mate wont boot after a full installation (single boot)

Most Nvidia cards will work well once the propritory drivers are in place but the open source drivers don't always work. Because of license problems Mint can not ship with the propritory drivers. They have to be installed which is very simple once you get to the desktop. go to the page I gave you in...

Re: Install woes

Does the machine boot to the login page. It will automatically enter the user name even if you left it blank. If you entered a user name when you did that install
you will have to use it. since you did not enter a password leave it blank it should login.

Re: Wifi Not Working On Mint 17.3

Hi, I certianly would not disagree with Chilli555 he's an expert in such things. However I have a 4312 card in this very machine. and Have found that since Mint 16.x the sta/wl driver works better and is more stable than the b43. b43 will work but is unstable at least on my machine.

If for no other reason just to see which ones I like and could recommend to others. Here's my list in order of preference with a few notes on pluses and minuses. 1. Neon - + u...

Re: Wireless printer looses IP address when powered off

you should set your printer to a static IP address on your network, which is outside the normal range for other devices. for instance mine is set in the .250 range which will never interfere with any other device. With HP it's possible to do it from the HP control panel, I do not know if that is pos...

Re: Wifi Not Working On Mint 17.3

There seems to be a problem for some reason building the module against that 4.4 kernel not sure why exactly as i've built on 4.4 machines before.
at this point I would install the 4.13 kernel or upgrade your system to 18.3.
Then try again.

Re: installation DVD does not work on my system

Is it possible for the installer to recognize that there's a video card which needs the ‘nomodeset' switch? I would suppose it to be possible, but you'd have to take that up with the Ubuntu installer team as Mint basically use Ubuntu's installer system. I'm not sure how complicated that would be. B...

Re: installation DVD does not work on my system

The problem is not the installer but the video card driver which is propitiatory and the manufacturer though they support lInux quite well will not release their drivers for open source to be able to work on them and thus because of license issues they can not be installed by default. and Not all ca...

Re: Dropbox Menu Tray Not Appearing In the Panel of LM 18.3

Hello Lcn_Lin and welcome to Linux Mint Forums,

You need to go to Control Center then startup applications. in the list give delete the dropbox and write a new one with the command you posted.
if you edit or leave the original one in the list it will not work.
good Luck.
