Re: Will a better Graphics card improve (FPS) on Wine gaming

Sorry for the late reply, I was away. Thanks for the answers. Yes there is one game I play from time to time that works really well but it is definitely not performing the same way as on Windows - actually the only real thing keeping the windows alive. That is Guild Wars 2. Other than that (perhaps ...

Re: Microsoft vs. Apple

OK, So i've used Windows XP,7,8 Linux RHEL , Ubuntu, OpenSUSE and Mint 17 + LMDE side by side for over a year now. The following is what I thought of it: I will always and always stay on the Linux side of things if all my software was available (I use some highly proprietary software at work). I wou...

Will a better Graphics card improve (FPS) on Wine gaming?

Hi I was testing games through Wine (and got asked this question) and I was wondering will a new or better graphics card improve the FPS through Wine gaming? For example: Play Guild Wars 2 on Windows with everything on Best Appearance and get 40-50 FPS - do the same on Wine and it is always 20 FPS l...

Re: How do (Can) I split my 2 internet connections?

Yep - I can get the ports or find them! So I then connect the two connections so that both are "ON" and then in web client settings -- for that connection -- on the port -- I direct that application (transmissions) to that port. It will start using that connection? Do I understand the principle corr...

Because I want stuff to work as I want them to work. I'm sure some of you feel the same way, and you will not stop until you get there. ...

Re: [Solved] Install Steam on LMDE 64 bit Cinnamon, Nvidia

I am able to get Steam to launch with no errors, but games (have tried HL2 and Super meat boy) will not launch or will launch a black window and just hang, freeze, etc. Are you launching it from the shortcut? or through steam from the menu? I know a couple of people who's games are not working if y...

Re: LMDE Glitchy sound on music and movies?<SOLVED>

So, Just so other people also know.... Do not try and install the proprietary driver for nVidia to the 3.15/16 kernels just yet (Until a someone gets it installed easily)... I've struggled my complete nuts off to get it to work. I can only start command line! (Haha) ..that does not work for movies...
