Migrate Mint from HDD to SSD?

Just bought a 500GB ssd and I want to migrate my entire partition to the new SSD and wipe out the old 1TB HDD.

Re: Redshift doesn't autostart?

I had this problem too. The solution I found, after searching around, was to include your lat/long in the autostart command in startup applications. This is my entry. (you'll need to substitute your own numbers, and that's a lower-case L preceding them btw) redshift-gtk -l 50.283:-3.774 As I unders...

Install newest version of Mesa for Radeon 7950

I want to test and see if it helps my poor fps performance in some games. How do I add the newest stable version of Mesa on Mint 17.3 and test it out?

Re: AMD Radeon 7950HD - 120/144hz possibility?

It does not persist on startup and unfortunately, your method does not make it do so.

What else could I do?

Redshift doesn't autostart?

I've added the "autostart" function by right-clicking on it, and further confirmed it in "Startup Applications" where it's also ticked. Yet, it does not start up when logging in.

How to fix this? I've tried purging it(and f.lux for that matter; same issue) and apt-get install it again. Same thing.

Indeed, catalyst control center states 144hz as well. I'll do your option if it doesn't persist after reboot. Thanks man!

Re: AMD Radeon 7950HD - 120/144hz possibility?

My friend. Now I feel dumb. Changing DVI port to the other one.. worked. Now xrandr shows 144hz available. Thank you a lot! What command should I run to pick 144hz permanently? xrandr outputs this now: 1920x1080 60.0*+ 144.0 120.0 99.9 1680x1050 144.0 120.0 99.9 60.0 1400x1050 144.0 120.0 99.9 60.0 ...

I did the exact steps as above in your latest post, after your edit(not before), and it resulted in the black/blue screen with only command line available.

I do not have a windows partition, no.

With this particular monitor, no. I have only used this monitor for Ubuntu 14.04 and now Linux Mint 17.3

Are you thinking the input cable is wrong?
