Re: Gloria is mute.

I'm going to have to dig out my old Daryna CD. Mint 7 won't produce sound no matter what I do.

Gloria is mute.

I finally upgraded my aging Daryna straight to Gloria yesterday. Everything seems in order except the sound.

Re: gaming performance increase tutorial

Interesting tip about the WINEDEBUG=-all setting. I'll have to see if that does much for me. Don't really appreciate him putting ideas about running-as-root in users' heads. It does improve performance a little on most apps just because it's skipping the authentication work, but some penalties are w...

Re: Guild wars anyone?

Here's a neat trick for better-than-ever fullscreen performance. I opened up the gw dekstop icon to find the wine executable syntax: $ cat Desktop/Guild\ Wars.desktop [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Encoding=UTF-8 Name=Guild Wars Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/cturtle/.wine" wine "F:\\Program Files\\Guild W...

Re: Guild wars anyone?

I can't believe how well this works. Just right-click the Gw.exe on the XP partition, select to run it with Wine, and "it just works".

I used to subscribe to Cedega a while ago and GW was always a problem for me.

Avasys is the reason Epson is the best choice of scanners for Linux users. I'd hoped to even find it in Mint's repository, but it's easy enough to download anyway.

GLX won't load

Just installed Mint 2.2. I can't figure out why glx won't work with my Nvidia drivers on my Toshiba Qosmio laptop. My video card: root@arctictern:~# lspci | grep -i nvid 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV43 [GeForce Go 6600] (rev a2) I'm running the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7184-pk...
