Re: Manjaro - what's the big deal

I don't know what's the big deal. I only tried it once and I got lost when installing software. I thought it's different because I'm so used to doing it the Ubuntu-based way. And I'm not going to change what I'm used to doing anytime soon. I think some people will always opt for something that is no...

Re: Linux that looks and feels like Windows 10?

Thanks for the info.Perhaps in the future I will try this Linux distribution.(Although i really like Mint ) I'm also using Linux Mint Cinnamon and Xfce. And I've only tried this Windows-like distro on a usb flash drive. What I liked about it is it's Ubuntu-based. And it's clearly Cinnamon with enha...

Re: Linux that looks and feels like Windows 10?

I would have preferred that the devs emulated Windows XP rather than Win 10.
But at least they showed that it can be done, graphics-wise, unlike others like Zorin
and others which promote their distros as appropriate choices for Windows users
when there rarely is any resemblance at all.

Seems this/these developer/s spent enormous amounts of time developing this distro.

Re: How do I enable/disable Xrender in Cinnamon?

Going back to this thread, I have upgraded to Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon and Xfce. It is so mind-boggling to me that Cinnamon still has this flickering issue while Xfce don't. (I don't like Mate, so I won't mention it here.) I really would like to just use Cinnamon and discard Xfce, but this issue just ...

Re: How do I enable/disable Xrender in Cinnamon?

I didn't see the VBlank and the RENDER extension. (Are you using Cinnamon?) The others like disabling Windows Effects and Compositing for full-screen Windows didn't do anything. I don't like/use MATE. This issue doesn't happen in Xfce, but I prefer Cinnamon's workflow/features and Kubuntu as a secon...

Re: How do I enable/disable Xrender in Cinnamon?

Open NVIDIA X Server Settings to the OpenGL Settings page. Move the Image Settings slider all the way to the left, to High Quality . Then try the other direction all the way to the right, to High Performance . The setting Allow Flipping should not be enabled. Same result: https://i.postimg.cc/28JXk...

Re: How do I enable/disable Xrender in Cinnamon?

By the way, the issue is about screen tearing, if that's what it's called;
random flashing bands on the screen during screen casting process.
And it's only when NVDIA drivers are installed.

Re: How do I enable/disable Xrender in Cinnamon?

Have you tried Cinnamon's native screen recorder? Ctrl+Alt+Shift+R to toggle on and off. No. I doubt it has extra features like specifying the size and location of the screen, other than full-screen mode. It's not about the application. It's about the drivers. You can use any app or any native scre...

Been trying to attach a gif image to show clearly the issue I've been experiencing when I use a screen capturing app like Kazam, etc. This forum system says, "File is too large..." when it's only tiny. Really, really, extremely frustrating system to deal with which is bad because it doesn't do anyth...

How do I enable/disable Xrender in Cinnamon?

Or is there even such a thing?

In KDE apps you go to:

Settings > Display and Monitor > Compositor, then

In the Rendering Backend category there are 3 choices:
OpenGL 3.1
OpenGL 2.0
XRender

About upgrading Mint from previous version to newer...

Just curious whether the upgrade process automatically deletes files that are no longer useful.
Would be glad if they are as they just take space and makes the whole system too large to handle.

Not all of us have free time to start from scratch all over again.
Would rather do the upgrade.

Re: So i tried zorin and pop_os

They are taking the minimalist thing just way too far. I get it, clean neat desktop, cool idea. Bad in practicality. Take the clutter away, but just hiding it in the closet leaving the end user to have to sort through it. the idea that you cant see apps without using the drop down menu is a hassle....

Re: Has anyone played around with MX Linux?

I tested the distro on a live USB about a month ago. I actually liked MX Linux. I like it's simplicity, it's Xfce-based, so it's gotta be simple to use. I even liked how they put the taskbar on the left side of the screen for a default, instead of on the bottom side. Why, because pc monitors are not...

Some people who have switched to Linux actually still need Windows. I bought a Fujitsu Scansnap S1500 years ago and it only had Windows drivers. So I have to boot to Windows (in my multi-boot system) to access my scanner. Of course, there is a generic Linux app for such scanner, but the Windows one ...

Re: Has anyone tried out the Distro Feren

I tried Feren just a while ago just to see if this screen casting issue with Mint exist.
The live distro answered what I needed to find. Now I now it's a Mint issue.
I'll be replacing Mint for the time being until the issue disappears.
