Re: Corsair K65 Keyboard & M65 Mouse in Mint

Unfortunately, there seems to be problems when booting and shutting down. As noted in my OP, just having the devices plugged in adds about 12 seconds to the boot time before the password prompt comes up. Then, there's usually a delay of several seconds before the password prompt will accept keystrok...

Corsair K65 Keyboard & M65 Mouse in Mint

I just wanted to post my experience with my new Corsair K65 RGB Rapidfire keyboard and M65 Pro RGB mouse in Linux Mint 17.3. Roughly speaking, they work fine as a plain old ordinary keyboard and mouse. But, none of the special effects work. I'll have to give compiling the following software a shot t...

They're going to support EXT4 and the like? Get rid of the adware/spyware/malware platform that's integral to Windows 10? Well, then, I guess I'd better move everything back over to my Windows partition.

Re: Corsair Gaming Mouse/Keyboard settings/drivers

Currently, I just have a standard keyboard. I was thinking about trying a K65 RGB RAPIDFIRE Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, but was worried about how it would work under Linux (as well as how it would be for plain old typing, but that's another story).

Re: Which GnuPG?

I had issues with Mint 18 (drives wouldn't necessarily mount and wired Ethernet wouldn't necessarily connect) and had to go back to 17.3. I might give Mint 18.1 a try at some point.

Re: Which GnuPG?

That's probably a bit beyond me right now. I guess I'll just stick with what's already on the machine. It's just a learning experience at this point. So, if I can learn these versions, I should be able to handle the new version in a couple of years (or if needed earlier). Thanks.

Which GnuPG?

I guess I need to start figuring out this encryption thing. So, I'd like to start with GnuPG and some of its add-ons. From Software Manager, I see that I've currently got both versions 1.4.16 (classic) and 2.0.22 (stable) installed. From several posts on these forums, I understand that I need to lea...

Re: Wake Computer by Mouse or Keyboard?

I'm dual booting Windows 10 and have never had a problem getting the computer to wake from Sleep (Suspend) there. It's not a big issue. It's just an irritation. I know some versions of Linux have this capability because I've found quite a few posts around the internet where people are trying to get ...

Re: Wake Computer by Mouse or Keyboard?

I went through those settings again and still see nothing that sets the mouse/keyboard to wake the computer from sleep. I'm amazed it works that way on your system. Over the course of Mint 17.x and even 18, I've clean-installed the OS about 4 or 5 times. Yet, I've never had the ability to wake the c...

Wake Computer by Mouse or Keyboard?

I'm using Mint 17.3 Cinnamon (x64). One of the trivial things that I really miss from the Windows side of things is waking my computer from Sleep by simply moving my mouse or hitting a key on the keyboard (Logitech wireless with receiver in a USB port). With Mint, I have to hit the power button on t...

Not sure if this is the right place, but even though this forum and the main Linux Mint web site are now all HTTPS, for some reason, the Linux Mint Blog is not. Any particular reason?

Re: Increase FOV range in Bioshock Infinite

Where are you looking for XUserOptions.ini? I see references to:

.local/share/irrationalgames/bioshockinfinite/GameDocuments/My Games/BioShock Infinite/XGame/Config/XUserOptions.ini

I don't have the game installed on Linux, so I don't know if that's correct.
