Try installing glib-networking if still not able to view https sites install libsoup-gnome2.4-1 That's what's strange - that was the first thing I checked after googling the problem, but...

SSL Handshake failed

Midori 0.4.3 Epiphany 3.10.3 Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa Neither Midori nor Epiphany browsers seem able to browse https sites, giving the SSL handshake error message. Https works in chromium and firefox. I think it also didn't work in Opera when I tried it. I need another browser besides chromium and firef...

Re: When Linux just can't do it

Another solution: switch to Interactive Brokers. ;-) They have a web trader, and java-based Trader Workstation (TWS) that is awesome and works great in linux. Low trading fees, too

Re: nvidia drivers won't run

Also of note, I think, is that nvidia-settings doesn't run normally, with all the options, but only shows the first two (forgot the exact error message). When you see an almost empty nvidia-settings, it means there was a misconfiguration in the Nvidia driver installation. I would have liked to have...

Re: nvidia drivers won't run

Ok, through some means I was able to get nvidia to run, possibly by blacklisting nouveau in blacklist.conf. Unfortunately, the video performance SUCKED, with choppy, laggy, tearing video that was out of sync, crappy performance in glmark2 (139??), and slow framerates in chromium-bsu, which I use to ...

Re: nvidia drivers won't run

uzername, Removing the package xserver-xorg-video-nouveau will remove the nouveau driver module ( nouveau_drv.so ), but not the kernel module ( nouveau.ko ), which is built during the driver installation. The lsmod command lists loaded kernel modules. The Nvidia kernel module and driver module will...

Each command entry contains only one individual package, e.g., xserver-xorg-video-nouveau = 1 package, not multiple packages.

nvidia drivers won't run

Mint 18.1 is randomly freezing and locking up on me, requiring a hard reboot, which seemed to start after i reverted to the nouveau drivers from originally using the proprietary drivers, so I wanted to switch back to the proprietary nvidia drivers to see if that was the problem. Now, however, Mint w...

gnome-terminal menu always on [SOLVED]

The option to disable the menu in new instances of gnome terminal seems to be missing from the preferences in Mint 18. I can turn off the menu by deselecting View -> Show menubar, but it's back again on new instances. Is there a config file where I can set that? I looked around in ~/.config and ~/.g...

You might have to repeat the procedure in Maintenance. There have been a few update problems recently so, I would also change your download mirror and then update the cache again. What are you upgrading from? 17.1 Rebecca. I've tried a couple different mirrors, same results, and on several differen...

Re: Chromium Issues After Upgrade

Hmm, interesting. Does seem to be a bug with nvidia/nouveau. I filed a report with google, not too confident of a quick fix, however. Going to try the restricted drivers you mentioned, see if that helps. Thx for the reference.

Thanks. I had already tried changing the framerate there, but it made no difference in how it was displaying. I used handbrake to convert the files, and that seems to be working, so TYVM! When I open the handbrake-rendered vid in avidemux -- still a mkv container -- that works properly in avidemux. ...

Re: What's Wrong with Avidemux?

Thanks, I will try those suggestions. One thing I just noticed when I turned on the frame rate notification in guvcview is that the video is only recording between about 5 and 12 FPS. even though I have 25fps selected. If avidemux thinks it was recorded at 25fps, I suppose that might account for it ...
