Re: Steam now lets you play Windows games on Linux

Just as I post that I look at Xenopeek's netlify link and it looks to be a known issue :D

Keeping the game installed incase there's a fix soon, do we know how often they're fixing these issues as I assume there's thousands of games that need little fixes?

Re: Steam now lets you play Windows games on Linux

On the video I watched he says you need as a minimum the nvidia 396.51 drivers, I'm only running 390.48 which I assume is the latest one in Mint. I've looked on the nvidia website and the latest version is 390.87. So where did they get 396.51 drivers from? I only have Call of Duty: Black Ops as a Wi...

Re: Terrible FPS on Counter Strike:GO

There's been a few updates lately and had one today for the microcode and I think there was a driver one the other day, back up to 60fps which at least makes the game playable, still not the same level it was before but has been smooth enough.

Re: Terrible FPS on Counter Strike:GO

Thanks both for your replies, VSync was already off and so was motion blur. I'm currently on kernel 4.15.0-30-generic, can't remember what kernel I was on with Linux Mint 18, I had a big clean out of all my kernels just after installing Mint 19 so I only have 4.15.0.x installed, was the latest one t...

Terrible FPS on Counter Strike:GO

Hi, Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64bit.

Re: Intermittent Wireless Keyboard

Nope, stopped working again. Think I might start looking for another keyboard but if it is a software issue will I have this issue with another keyboard?

Re: Intermittent Wireless Keyboard

On the possibility of a recent update as cause, try booting from Live CD/Flash and see if the problem persists. Yeah good thinking, tried the Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon LiveCD and the keyboard wasn't working, changed the batteries again and it didn't work so was ready to give up, started pressing a few...

Intermittent Wireless Keyboard

Hi, Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon, 64 bit. Recently my Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard 1.1 has stopped working, well not completely. Sometimes it'll work, it'll only work for about 20 seconds and then stop again. I've changed the batteries (twice) and it makes no difference. I never, ever had this p...

As soon as I close down the Update Manager and then reopen it, it then works fine. I suspect you're manually using Update Manager while the a...

Re: login window background image not displaying in 18.2 (lightdm) (solved)

In case anyone else reads this and this solution doesn't work for them I found this video on YouTube about putting the pictures in usr/share/pixmaps and it worked for me.

What's the matter with WPS? It's designed to be like a clone so what don't you like about it?

Re: Best way to partition laptop

Forgot to add I think the computer is locked down by UEFI but I'm not 100% sure, will that cause issues when installing Windows after Linux Mint? Ah, that is notable. I don't know what you may encounter if you're attempting to install Windows 10 after Linux Mint in a UEFI environment. I've installe...
