Re: B550 motherboards not OK with Mint 20

From what I read the Intel ax200 should be supported in kernels newer than 5.2. It has been used in x570 boards. Considering X570 motherboards with faster lan have been out for a while, I would have thought the driver was included too. So far, most distros I've looked at only support the wifi befor...

Intel® I225-V 2.5Gb Ethernet after install?

Noticed that on my new B550 mobo, most distros lack a driver for the faster ethernet out of the box and you have to connect via wifi. Wanted to ask if AFTER the install, there are drivers available for the wired connection or if you are stuck on wifi? Thanks.

Re: B550 motherboards not OK with Mint 20

All three mint flavors use the exact same kernel. Cinnamon can give trouble if your graphics drivers are borked, which may be the case in a live cd environment since the Nvidia drivers don't load automatically always. Don't understand why Mate is give you trouble because by default Marco uses a cpu...

Re: B550 motherboards not OK with Mint 20

What is the rest of your hardware? This nothing inherent to b550 boards that are radically different from b450/b350 boards. Running a Ryzen 3600 with an Asus B550 Gaming F mobo, 16GB Corsair 3200 ram and a GTX 1060 card. I assumed it would be OK because I just replaced my B450 mobo and never had a ...

I can't see it making a difference between the two DE's, perhaps you had a bad download or install with cinna
I've burned the same iso twice so I'm gonna download it again and try it a third time. I'll let you know how it goes.

UPDATE: Booted the XFCE 20 on my thumb drive in 18 seconds and everything seemed to work fine except for the fact that it does not detect that my ethernet cable is attached and makes me sign in to my wireless. I burned the Cinnamon ISO back onto the thumb drive, ran it and again experienced the same...

Re: B550 motherboards not OK with Mint 20

Anybody with a new B550 mobo should wait a bit for these bugs to get cleared out. Rather than blindly blaming 'bugs' with Linux Mint and a whole series of motherboards, why not use your experience from 120+ forum posts to detail the problem properly and ask for assistance. My original post details ...

B550 motherboards not OK with Mint 20

Just finished trying out Mint 20 Cin from a fast USB drive and noticed some serious issues with slow performance. Boot up took over 3 minutes and the desktop was sluggish with apps taking several seconds to open. Altering window sizes was also slow at first. Shutting down did not work properly eithe...

Re: Cinnamon display refresh rate setting?

I did save the config and rebooted but didn't check to see what the file said. After the reboot, I opened up the Nvidia panel after noticing the frame rate was still off and it had reverted to the previous settings. It said it saved the config but didn't do it. Think I'm going to switch to the XFCE ...

Re: Cinnamon display refresh rate setting?

Near as I can tell, nothing happens when I hit apply on the Nvidia panel. I immediately tested the frame rate and nothing had changed. I tried all the different drivers without results. I've test the same hardware with Elementary OS and Manjaro Gnome images I have on my rig and there are no issues w...

Re: Cinnamon display refresh rate setting?

Just tried removing the Nvidia drivers and going with Xorg and that seems to improve the frame rate to its near correct level. Odd that the drivers from Nvidia don't seem to play nice with Cinnamon. Gonna check out how XFCE does and compare.

Re: Cinnamon display refresh rate setting?{UPDATE]

Well, it looks like it didn't work after all. I realized something was wrong with the refresh rate when I was watching some videos that are normally very smooth at 60 fps and checked only to discover that the framerate was set at 30 fps. I tried changing it on the Nvidia panel to no avail as things ...

In Nvidia-settings, click on X Server Display Configuration, and you see it similar to below. Click on the monitor you want to adjust in the Layout section, then on the line "Resolution:", if the second dropdown box says Auto, click on it, and your available choices will be listed.

Cinnamon display refresh rate setting?

Just installed the Cinnamon 19.3 on a PC and noticed that there is no way to set the refresh rate manually in the display applet. Is there a way to do this in the system? I have an Nvidia card and can use their panel but wanted to ask if there is another option. Thanks.

I've installed xfce 19.3 and really like it but I've noticed that every other boot up, my display gets messed up and only 1 monitor turns on with a low resolution setting. If I reboot, it goes back to normal. I'm running an nvidia 1060 card using the 435.21 driver and wanted to ask if this happens t...
