Difficulty testing new kernel

The trackpad on my new PC is not recognised by the kernel. Canonical have asked if I can test 4.18 to see if it is resolved there. Q1 Is this possible under LM19 Cinnamon? Q2 Assuming it is possible... One of the three kernel files fails to install because of the Nvidia drivers. How can I safely adj...

Re: All forums user should reset their password

I've changed my password, but won't the attacker continue to try to crack the new one? If so, I'm as vulnerable as before, though with a stronger password. At logon, my account is marked as having too many logon attempts and I have to use the Captcha. Does this stop the attacker from continued autom...

Re: ndiswrapper not present

After a lot more consideration a better solution seems to be to abandon the installed wifi and use a USB wifi card instead. One important advantage is that the USB wifi card supports the encryption of my recent wifi router, whereas the built in one is too old. For less than £10, this seems a better ...

Re: ndiswrapper not present

Thanks for the further advice. Good news: I discovered that on the other (Vista) box the Wireless card had been recognised and that's all working fine Bad news: On the XP box, I started getting Segmentation faults, due almost certainly to a wifi configuration process not completing properly (it stal...

Re: ndiswrapper not present

Many thanks for the suggestions, all followed. ndiswrapper installed with no problems and after some fiddling around, it almost looked as if was going to work, but it didn't. I want to try a few more things, but probably I'll still need help... Would you expect the MAC address for the wifi card to b...

Hi to all, this is my first post in these forums. My problem is getting the wireless card to work. I'm entirely new to Linux but an experienced IT professional (c 50 years). Mint 16 installed fine on two PCs in parallel with a Windows version (XP and Vista), but wifi, which works perfectly from Win,...
