Re: LMDE cinnamon in rendering Intel HD 5300

Read around some more online. Sounds like installing it, manually updating (read as: updating via terminal) to cinnamon 2.8, upgrading kernel to 4.0+, and installing version 2:2.99.917-1 of Intel video drivers would do the trick. :? Problem I'm concerned about is this. The whole reason I chose LMDE ...

LMDE cinnamon in rendering Intel HD 5300

Hi, Just purchased an Asus ux305fa-usm1 because I needed to upgrade and researched and found it plays well with linux. Ubuntu works out of the box, but I don't care for unity and like Debian as a base. Live boot from USB (no disk drive) cinnamon starts in rendering mode. Laptop spec: Intel core m 5y...

Re: cinnamon crashes with fglrx driver install

I'm a web developer and 2D/3D designer; I need fglrx if possible, but will settle for the open source driver if necessary. Thanks for your help. I have considered uninstalling fglrx and installing the open source driver. Would still like to go on with fglrx though. Someone know what I need to do fro...

cinnamon crashes with fglrx driver install

Having BIG troubles! I have a HP g6 pavilion with an amd a4 apu with integrated radeon graphics. Installed mint 15 with cin. 1.8 and installed the fglrx driver ( it was the latest version when LM 15 came out) worked great. Then I scratched LM 15 for LMDE (whatever the first release in 2014 was, had ...

Re: LMDE on an EFI/ UEFI booting PC?

Windows 8 has been gone a long time, and my laptop is currently in "Legacy Mode" with "Secure Boot" off. The question I'm asking is: Will LMDE run in this environment?("Legacy Mode" on; "Secure Boot" off) AND, Is it all right to leave my computer in this state "Till dooms day"? Sorry for the misunde...

Re: LMDE on an EFI/ UEFI booting PC?

And I take it that it is OK to leave UEFI disabled along with "Secure Boot", and run the system in "Legacy Mode." Will LMDE run in such an environment? And will my computer run for the rest of it's existence "OK" in such a state? :| I may know some about computers, but I'm not a geek. I'm a newbie, ...

LMDE on an EFI/ UEFI booting PC?

Hi, I love The Linux Mint Ubuntu based distro (13,15) with the Cinnamon Desktop, but Ubuntu is very slow. I've heard that LMDE is a bit faster, but not bootable via EFI/UEFI. My PC uses EFI to boot from. Is there any way to run LMDE on a PC that boots from EFI/UEFI (either/or)? Or am I going to have...

Re: Screen Blinks Every 30 Seconds

I'll try the driver from X.Org, but I'm not convinced that's it. I've done some experimenting and found that it only does it when my computer is running on battery (ie unplugged. I'm running LM on my laptop). Opened System Monitor and saw that it was Cinnamon that was running up the CPU each time my...

Screen Blinks Every 30 Seconds

Hi, I'm a total newbie. I'm trying Cinnamon 15 and one of the first things that I noticed is that my laptop's screen blinks every 30 seconds (to the dot). Is that normal? Running an HP G6 with AMD A4 APU, and I'm using the drivers by ATI for amd on Linux. Running in Legacy Mode. Everything else seem...
