Re: Error installing package mint-meta-codecs

Restored defaults in Software Sources, same original install error on mint-meta-codecs. Other software comes along fine, and I haven't done anything odd. I chose some faster mirrors as part of the Update Manager setup, and most software I've installed has been from the Software Center. Thank you for...

Re: Best GPU driver for a Lenovo ThinkPad X140e with AMD A4-5000/HD8330 iGPU?

It's possible to use the amdgpu experimental support with Kabini GPU because they are first generation GCN. The amdgpu driver performs marginally better but do not expect miracles. I just got a very similar reply from Reddit and rebooted after making those changes... to see an email letting me know...

X140e isn't a Chromeook, but thanks for the answer.

I bought this as an ultraportable to Reddit with a nice screen and keyboard, stream media, and have a better user experience than a phone. So far it's done all of that very well. Any gaming that it can manage is gravy, as some say.

[Solved] Best GPU driver for a Lenovo ThinkPad X140e with AMD A4-5000/HD8330 iGPU?

I know that it's netbook class and not all that powerful, but many games from Steam just force close when started, which makes me think that perhaps I am not availing myself of the best possible driver. (For example, both Skyrim LE and SE do not get to the launcher, BioSock does show the menu at all...

[Likely solved, untested] Laptop - Internal speakers and bluetooth headphones share the same sound output volume?

Linux Mint 20 Ulyana, Cinnamon, x64 On my Lenovo ThinkPad X140e, I tried connecting my Bose QC35 to it, via Bluetooth. I played a portion of a video (which came through the headphones), and then paused the video. When I resumed it, the audio came through my built-in laptop speakers. When I explored ...

Re: VLC and YouTube video freezes briefly, while audio keeps going, then they re-sync - How to fix?

Yes, 1 monitor, running off the 750 Ti. Previously, the 970 was dedicated solely to Folding@Home for team EVGA. However, since they changed their reward limits to favor more powerful cards, I may someday remove the 750 Ti and promote the 970 to primary GPU duties. My system is in an awkward spot to ...

Linux Mint 19.1 has supported touch screen, backlit keyboard with the usual functions on Yoga laptop. You will have to install it on your machine to test. I wasn't (mostly) asking about hardware support. For example, in Windows, I can (theoretically, as I don't have the machine here to test) open u...

Greetings.

Thanks for the recommendations.
