Freezing

I have a acer axc-603g-uw12 that I installed Linux mint on it kept freezing. I tried a fresh install of ubuntu and the problem is still there. So I'm pretty sure it's either a hardware conflict with Linux or its faulty hardware any suggestions on tracking it down?

Re: Godmode equivalent?

Try

Code: Select all

sudo su -l mdm

If not Go to the config file, /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, and you can use the variable display-setup-script to set up a script that can do whatever you like with the resolution, mirroring, etc.

Re: Trouble getting Linux Mint KDE 18 installed on a MSI GX-70 Destroyer laptop.

I had an Asus g-70 with a Radeon 3850 I believe. Which had problems with mint install similar to what you're having. My work around as not perfect but worked for my needs was install ubuntu which for some reason worked perfectly then just tweak it like mint.

Re: Cinnamon Wifi doesn't ask password and stuck

I had this problem with my new router. I changed the encryption on the router settings page and it worked fine after that I do not remember what the default was and what I changed it to. I believe it was from tkip to aes. May have been the other way around also.

Re: X-Plane 10 Installer Linux nonresponsive

cd to x-plane dir and do:



ldd X-*64



If libs are missing install them (google and synaptic will help). Then do:



./X-*64
