Re: I never see anyone talking about building Mint desktops!

I built my PC for Mint last year (Spring 2016). It's set up for dual monitors and displays 3840x1080 pixels across two screens. Most of the components came from Newegg and totaled under $600.00. The CPU is overclocked to 4GHz and runs wonderfully. I found less hassle by sticking with NVidia GPUs. He...

Mint MATE menu editor not opening...

The Mint MATE Menu only displays a few apps under "Favorites" and nothing is listed under "All Applications". I tried to open the menu editor, both by right-clicking the icon and selecting the editor and by way of the Control Panel. It blinks momentarily, and that's it. What the heck is going on? 20...

Re: KDE-Connect-Indicator no phone icon (SOLVED)

I found the required folder, but it shows it linked to the Oxygen folder. What's up with that?

Re: Mint 18 MATE Compiz Windows Borders Theme Issue

Compiz itself is functioning just fine. The gtk-windows theme engine is what's giving me the issue with some of my gtk2 and 3 themes. I was wondering if someone else was having a similar issue. It's not a really big deal.

Re: compiz just does not work

Have you installed the proprietary video drivers for your Nvidia card? It sounds like your desktop isn't set up for compositing yet. Check in Menu/Administration/Driver Manager and see which video driver is installed and is selected. Chances are you may still be on the Nouveau driver.

Mint 18 MATE Compiz Windows Borders Theme Issue

It seems that not all of my windows borders are accepted by Compiz with Mint 18 MATE. I had no issue applying any of the gtk2, gtk3 or Metacity themes with Mint 17.3 MATE under Compiz. If I switch window management to Marco or Metacity then the borders change according to the theme that I've chosen....

Re: Best video card for Linux Mint 17.1?

This has been helpful. Although I'm not the poster, I too am looking to upgrade. My whole system, that is. I've had lousy luck with my old Radeon RV100 card on much more than Mint 13 Mate. I've done a clean install of Mint 17.1 Mate, but no working Compiz anymore. My kid's netbook out performs this ...

Re: How to install printer driver

joelpaz, how were you able to get a scanner driver for your Epson? I have a NX-420 all-in-one and cannot find a scanner driver anywhere. Possibly, your driver may work with my Epson? Could you post a link for your scanner driver here, please?
