No need to use nvidia unless your gaming. Sadly nouveau is still about 50% less fps when running games

Re: Evolution email program asking for password

I agree that thunderbird "may" function better but I do not like the interface (looks sort of juvenile) and does not have some of the features that Evolution has. There is no penalty for having both installed, perhaps at least trying under thunderbird to see if the same issue happens. If ...

Re: systemd removal from the system

I don't want any systemd-related thing in my system still think most people that are against systemd have never actually touched a system with systemd. or they dont do any type of system administration. systemd might not be the best thing, but right now its the only thing and until someone actually...

Re: No Video Drivers and Proprietary Drivers

I think, not 100% sure, that intel graphics cards are all supported and driver support are done though the kernel therefore there wont be any "proprietary" drivers to install unlike NVidia and AMD

Re: systemd removal from the system

Borrowed from another page but this pretty much sums it up.. I can see where some dont like systemd if your on older systems or only one server but in retrospect if were wanting to delopy hundreds if not 1000's of servers really until someone comes up with something better its pretty pointless to gr...

Re: Graphical Remote Desktop

guessing you mean RDP client, have you tried like Remmina? is similiar to windows Remote desktop... to access linux from windows you probably need to install something like xrdp which might be on there under mint already being based on ubuntu, im on a mac currently so cannot check a this time

Re: Create a linux web server

I do prefer working from the GUI if possible. If I could log in as root in the GUI from time to time it would be helpful. Is there a way? For Apache i havent really found any GUI like IIS for configuring.. But like i mentioned Webmin is amazing tool can do 99% of the config for apache.. There maybe...

Re: What are some good open source video editors?

Hey guys. I'm looking for some good FOSS video editors. I want to fork one, and then hopefully improve upon its design, add features, etc. If someone could list or link me some video editors and their respective websites/github/source code links, that'd be fantastic. Thank you, and happy linux codi...

Re: Create a linux web server

My question here is: Should I use the mariadb 5.5 or the newer 10.0 version? Not sure if Mint repos has 10 yet as default as my server is plain old debian.. 5.5 is considered most stable as been out for awhile. however 10 is considered a stable release. There is newer features in 10 as well as perf...

Re: Create a linux web server

On an headless machine to be remotely controlled, ssh is the king's road :) Agreed, but webmin is a good middle road versus relying on rdp and as this seems tobe the first linux server the op is setting up.. I typically use SSH but the webmin web-interface is nice and light resources versus using s...

Re: Create a linux web server

From Windows => Linux : Use xrdp sudo apt-get install xrdp I would suggest looking at webmin versus doing rdp especially if this machine is more or less headless sitting in a closet or server room..

Re: Graphics Card Or Not

Depends how much video editing you plan on doing, but also plan for the future. Light weight video eiditing you probably could get away with the integrated video card but your cpu will be doing more work and your system will bog down more. But also suppose what financial limits are imposed too.. tbh...
