Sound Very Quiet [Solved]

After upgrading from Linux Mint Mate 19 to 19.1 the sound is very quiet. First test I did was on YouTube and everything sounds not only quiet but weird. I notice in sound preferences it shows GP106 High Definition Audiro Controller is Disabled and Off. Should I enable and turn that on? Edit: I downg...

Re: Can't Login To Steam

I am running Linux Mint 19 Mate and installed the defualt Steam client from the Software Manager which I assume would be the repository version? Steam updated for me yesterday and then again today and both times I noticed it said something about IPv6 but I have no idea what that really is. Internet ...

Re: Can't Login To Steam

Anyone know how to contact Steam support? There are 4 options to click on if you have trouble signing in to Steam and now I am at a screen and it is asking if I want to change my email or password. Those are the only two options it is giving me. I don't need to change either of those. I just can't s...

Can't Login To Steam

Steam updated today and can no longer login. The update today looked very similar or the same as the update yesterday but now it just sits there forever at the login screen. If I click on I can't login to Steam it comes up with 4 troubleshooting options and none of those are remotely close to the pr...

Re: Unable to locate nvidia drivers

Using Timeshift to go back probably took less than 10 seconds and then about 15 seconds to reboot so it was rather painless. The quick start instructions at: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/blob/proton_3.7/PREREQS.md say that is all you have to do and then you are done but I can not see how ...

Re: Unable to locate nvidia drivers

I think I am going to stay as far away as possible from the terminal in the future. I've looked at the links for updating to the latest nvidia drivers and watched videos on it as well but I am guessing that they seem to leave out critical steps that need to be done. I hope updating drivers on Linux ...

My update manager just updated and now I noticed it is showing these options: nvidia-graphics-driver-390 (which is the 390.87 driver) nvidia settings (396.54) vulkan-loader (1.1.82) Looks like it is suggesting I update to the 390.87 drivers but I am trying to update to the 396 dirvers.

Re: Unable to locate nvidia drivers

So if I understand correctly then all I have to do is: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt install nvidia-driver-396 Yes that makes sense and I wish your instructions were on that link. If they had been I probably wouldn't have had this problem. :) Now that ...

Re: Unable to locate nvidia drivers

Not sure what to do or if I need to clean things up now that those terminal commands didn't work? After you added the PPA, did you refresh your cache so it reflects newly added sources? sudo apt-get update Joe No I just used these two commands that it shows to use: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graph...

Re: Steam now lets you play Windows games on Linux

Games seem to be working fine with just the 390 drivers though I have only tested two so far with one being The Witcher 3. The screen tearing though in Cinnamon is horrible. I didn't know Cinnamon was still having issues with tearing otherwise I would have stuck with Mate. Sounds like next release ...

Audio Bug?

If I go into sound settings and increase or decrease the volume it also increases and decreases the slider for the subwoofer. Adjusting the slider for balance also adjusts the slider for fade.

Re: Steam now lets you play Windows games on Linux

Anyone know if you will always need bleeding edge video drivers for using Proton? I tried using the terminal to install the latest Nvidia drivers but that was a no go and am worried about having to always wait for the drivers to be officially released before being able to use Proton. I hope that wil...

Re: Help With Timeshift Restore

Yes I thought I would be safe just clicking next as it looks like only the first option is highlighted for me. Thanks for the help and I assume that once I do the system restore the terminal commands I used that didn't work will no longer be affecting the system in any way?
