Re: Nvidia GTX 970 and Mint Cinnamon 19.1, wishing to upgrade to 410 Nvidia drivers

Yes, and as i literally just explained, I forgot to copy that due to pain and a fuzzy head from painkillers, so grabbed that log from the Logs app, so as to provide somehting at all. Had to remove the damn thing, again, and reinstall the 390 as the 20+ cinnamon crashes were driving me batshit insane...

Re: Nvidia GTX 970 and Mint Cinnamon 19.1, wishing to upgrade to 410 Nvidia drivers

THank you for your patience. I missed copying the install log as I was somewhat distracted by nerve pain at the time, and forgot. Apologies, but the pain and drugs (painkillers and Diazepam) makes me a bit ... foggy. This too failed, and back in software-rendering mode, which causes Cinnamon to cras...

Re: Nvidia GTX 970 and Mint Cinnamon 19.1, wishing to upgrade to 410 Nvidia drivers

Once again it did not work, and can't figure why. So had to remove and purge the 410, then go back to 390. Frustrating. I nsee so many saying it works for them, and it SHOULD for mine, but fails. I doin't know if i'm missing somehting, or it just hates me

Are you sure your caps lock key wasn't on when entering your password either originally, or now? I've stumped myself with this in the past

Re: mount nfs: access denied

You definitely have nfs-common installed on the machine? I've had a similar sounding issue before, and that turned out to be the missing culprit

I had this issue, and the culprit trned out to be some of the desktop extensions. Tried disabling extra ones, and narrowed it down to 2, whcih i removed. All worked fine since

Re: Some webpages opening very slowly or not opening at all

No actual advice to offer, but wanted to let you know it's not just you. Certain sites seem to take forever loading, or come up empty for me also, then later they'll work. No rhyme nor reason to it that i can discern

I would assume not, since it's only backing up SYSTEM changes, not user ones, which are kept n your /home directory

Just to clarify, it seems to check all the repos and update the list, then gives that error at the end.

Just delete trash from bin before you eject the phone and it will delete everything physically

Your browser won't make your FB page vanish. Sounds like an issue with FB itself, the page being removed for whatever reason. Have you tried contacting FB and asking about it?

Re: 17.1 Compiz + NVidia + dual screen

Odd. I'm running an install of Mate 17.1, Compiz enabled, and using an Nvidia card 560GTX (from memory),with driver installed, and not having this issue. Dual-monitors working fine. Have you looked at the Monitors setting, and see if anything is amiss there?
