Re: How to change refresh rate for external monitor?

@ugly

thank you very much! I will also just wait until Linuxmint updates to newer version. I've done so far many tests and none seemed to work anyway. I just need to tolerate the occasional black screens for the moment.

Re: How to add presets in PulseEffects?

A friend used PulseEffects on Ubuntu 17.10 and all the presets load fine.

Now I started to think perhaps all the problems are due to the fact it might be written for newer version of ubuntu but Linuxmint is older.

Re: How to add presets in PulseEffects?

@greerd Hi there, there is no such a folder there, I checked from the very beginning. I created a folder in order to use the presets from github but it won't even load. I ended up deleting it. Now since I'm able to create my own preset I wonder where it was really stored! Again I checked, there is n...

Re: How to add presets in PulseEffects?

Just to update on playing with PulseEffects 3.1.2 I read this article https://www.digitaltrends.com/home-theater/eq-explainer/4/ and made a customized preset for myself. And I named it then clicked on the "+" button, it was added. Then I clicked on "Save the current setting to preset". It was saved ...

Hi there, I would like to enable the equalizer in Spotify's Linux app and it seems the only way is to install PulseEffects. I found it in the Software Manager.However, there is no presets there, and I don't know how to adjust it myself. So I searched online and followed the instruction here: https:/...

Re: How to change refresh rate for external monitor?

That's a shame. So perhaps ubuntu could be the rescue. Please let me know. I don't have any plan to install ubuntu yet, as I like Mint better. But please keep me updated if you find the driver tool works under ubuntu.

Re: How to change refresh rate for external monitor?

@ugly Hey sounds like that, might very well be intel's issue. One solution might be that Linuxmint upgrades to newer ubuntu so we could try out that intel graphic driver update tool for Linux. Please try your new HDMI, as well as DP to see if the condition improves! I would be curious to know too. H...

Re: How to change refresh rate for external monitor?

Hi there, here are things I've tried so far. 1. install ComPiz Settings Manager from software manager and default plugin, this enabled me to change the refresh rate easily. I changed to 65, however flash and black screen problems remain. I guess perhaps that only applies to my default monitor on lap...

Re: How to change refresh rate for external monitor?

Hi there! Definitely NOT that image. Mine is more like quick, half a second flash of the screen. Then from time to time, black screen for 1 or 2 seconds, then back to normal. In most of the time, the display quality is perfect. Just those occasional errors bother me as I haven't seen that in my old ...

Re: How to change refresh rate for external monitor?

OK so turning on intel driver option doesn't solve the problem. Now I've reverted it. I will try USB live CD tmr. And I do not have those "tearing" thing, which slices the image into pieces. My major problems are flashes, and occasional black screen. Those happens from time to time, but it's hard to...

Re: Internet cut off while WIFI is still on? Cause and Fix?

Ah I see! Perhaps this means my new laptop might just have a "weaker" WIFI connection compared to the old one then.

I will mark the USB wifi for future reference and it seems interesting.

Right now I will mark it as solved for the moment.

Thank you for helping!

Re: How to change refresh rate for external monitor?

Hi there, In Menu > Display there is NO OPTION in choosing different refresh rate in Linuxmint, or did I miss something? I don't think it's the LED problem as we just bought it a few weeks ago and it works perfectly with the other laptop. This laptop which I am having problem with was bought last we...

Re: Internet cut off while WIFI is still on? Cause and Fix?

I am suspecting my laptop though. As this doesn't seem to happen in my old laptop, iphone, ipad or anything else who shares the same WIFI connection. I want to make sure it's not a defect due to hardware.
