Re: firefox running very slow

Firefox has in my experience improved hardware acceleration a lot in later versions (it is planned to be fully supported from version 57). Although very old hardware may not have the capability..

Re: Nvidia-375 driver crashing Cinnamon

If you go into your bios (often the del key) you may set init display port to the nvidia card instead of Intel. Another thing may be to move your xorg.conf file out of the way (see /etc/X11). For example within /etc/X11 sudo mv xorg.conf xorg.backup reboot If this works you can run nvidia-settings. ...

Re: Rig for mining

I dont know why you can't get your scripts working but that is something that you will find out soon since it is a relatively easy task. What you perhaps did not know is that you could try to lower the power consumption of your nvidia card: Find out what power it is needing now: nvidia-smi -i 0 -q -...

Re: Cannot boot normally, recovery mode breaks nvidia driver

My system did not have a xorg.conf either but having it did wake up my
Nvidia and also getting rid of the black screen after upgrade 17.2 -> 17.3.

But now since you installed fresh and not upgraded it may be different.
Perhaps now you should try the latest drivers. Google xorg-edgers

Re: Cannot boot normally, recovery mode breaks nvidia driver

Hi check out:

http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... &p=1101215

It's probably simply related to the xorg.conf file and not drivers.
Worked for me..

Also during black screen close lid for a few seconds and open. Voila!
Merry x-mas!

Re: Video Tearing Nvidia Optimus Hybrid cards

Hi just a thought. Turn off your laptop screen and only run your
LED 55 inch monitor when gaming. Thats what I did for a buddy with Nvidia.

Re: Video Tearing thru HDMI- Recurring problem - Please Help

A risky but easy way to get a consistent system may be to get the latest drivers from: https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa I think you should try this since your system is just newly installed anyway. What you do is the following: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo a...

Re: Computer VERY slow/laggy after updates

Through out the AMD card.
Reboot. All good with the Intel?
Consider to stick with that.

Alternatively test to through in the AMD again
and see if the drivers can get it right this time..
