Mobile GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, Quadro P2000/P1000, Lenovo P1/X1 Extreme Support

The only 'Lenovo' software I've installed is tlp, and while originally targeted at thinkpads works on most laptops.

Thinkpad/Lenovo laptop soft

Hello,

Is there a thread that discuses on how to install Lenovo software for Thinkpad laptop?
And where should I download it if it exist?
There's Power manager from lenovo for windows for example, and lots of other soft from lenovo for windows.
I have Thinkpad T430s and use Cinnamon.
Thank you!

Re: Linux Mint 19 "Tara" Cinnamon released!

Is Cinnamon 19 version still beta?
what 'beta' actually means?
I'm just pretty new to linux, so would rather wait till some very stable version comes out.
I currently have 18.2 Cinnamon. Is there a need to update?

Clonezilla also does disk to disk cloning in 1 operation.

Hi "stridder", From what I could see, you want to install "gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad", and "gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly" which can be done by right clicking it in the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" selecting suggested option, and "gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio" from recommended. I recommend installing the...

Good. Don't install any. You have the correct driver ... there are no closed AMD drivers in 18.x and none for any current Linux distro for cards older than the 5xxx series.

Cannot play online radio. GStreamer installation missing plug-in

Hello,
I'm trying to listen to online radio using Rhythbox, it says 'Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in'.
I'm pretty new to linux and use Rhythbox just b/c it comes preinstalled with Mint (Cinnamon), if there's a better audio player feel free to recommend.
Thank you!

You might want to critique this topic before creating a swap file.
Are instructions in the above topic work for mint Cinnamon also?
