Re: nVidia GeForce where nvidia 304 driver doesn't solve iss

I have an HP XW 8400 workstation with NVIDIA NV42GL Quadro FX 3450/4000 - that I spent weeks doing like you describe in your post, following all of the tips and answers in forums. Learned a great deal and can call up the terminal now more than ever before but that 304 driver would not run. It froze ...

Re: How do you promote Mint?

I've been boring and humoring co-workers with stories of Linux Mint and made a short video in my non-stop effort to get them to at least look at it once. Today I added it to my blog http://jimamidon.com/blog/2016/01/22/linux-mint-17-3-review-by-a-noob/ and connected with another noobie via youtube. ...

Re: I made a video

A good effort! However, I found the sound track weak and noisy. Even at full volume it was difficult to understand. A video editor will give you the ability to amplify the sound track, reduce the noise level, and set the DC offset to zero. Using a mic and adjusting the volume during recording is an...

Re: I made a video

Well done, I like how you explained it simple and basic. I'm going to have a few of my friends look at your video (they are tired of Windows and sometimes rant about how it has slowed down and how they want to fix it with a hammer) to see if it will persuade them to give Linux a try. Maybe seeing a...

I made a video

It's aimed at my friends 'n co-workers who humor me by listening to stories about the OpenSource community and Linux Mint in particular of late. Intro includes: "... Deliberately brief and non-tech. Remember, this is Linux not Unix. The difference is significant and a great story should you decide t...

Re: Need a book or website for the complete newbie

Am just a few weeks into this myself and have had good luck finding youtube videos with tips on Linux in general and the latest Mint. Type Linux Mint into search and set filter for this year. Also, I found tutors and tools through my Android phone's ap store. This one came in handy last week. My des...

Hello and Thanks

This is the first distro to get me diving into the terminal and wanting to learn more thanks to how well it's designed and all of the help on your forums. I still haven't got past the snag with nvidia drivers but I don't mind, it's been an education and now I'm hooked. :D That wasn't a request for h...
