Re: Windows to linux.

I use Steam on Linux Mint 19. I have relatively extensively used Steam to game on Windows 7, Windows 10, Linux Mint 18.3 and Linux Mint 19. Here's what you do : Go to your Steam library on your Linux system, press Install on any of the Linux-compatible games that you want. Then you can indeed select...

Re: Question about HDMI audio [Nvidia]

I also dual boot Windows 10 and Linux Mint 19. And I too have HDMI sound (albeit AMD). I think there's a second Realtek device as well. At any rate, you are onto something for sure, because more than half of the times I switch over to W10 and then boot back to L19 I have no sound at all and have to ...

Re: Conky freeze or GPU issue?

In my research to my conundrum, I invoked a horrible screen flicker as well. Luckily, I made a backup copy before I started messing with things and found a fix for the flicker by changing: double_buffer = false, to double_buffer = true, That worked entirely.. that setting was missing for me so I ty...

Re: Civilisation VI coming to Linux

To follow up on my previous post here: Civilization VI works great on my newer laptop with Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64-bit! It wasn't 18.3 that was the issue, as to why I couldn't load Civ6 before, it was my previous laptop. Which also didn't run it on 19. It works well! Civ6 via Steam on Mint 16. Usi...

Software Developer Category on Forum

Would be cool to have a category on this forum dedicated to programmers and related development. So people can talk about / help with CodeBlocks, C++, SDL, Monodevelop, cross-platform, web dev, game dev, debugging, compiling, etc., all.

Re: Conky freeze or GPU issue?

Much ablidged, I feel I have made further progress, some of those settings weren't in my config to modify so I added them manually, I should probably check my conky version/repository/update/etc. and read more on it in case I'm unaware of something others know, but also I have some blinking still ju...

Thanks (again) for the information! I did a quick search for the topic but didn't look thoroughly enough before asking, my apologies to all.

Re: Conky freeze or GPU issue?

Thanks for the idea smurphos, I just reduced the font size as an idea based on the principle of what you're saying and it reduced the blink frequency, so I appreciate the help! For some reason adjusting the minimum width won't actually change the application's width for me. But changing font size fr...

Re: Sound only quits working after dual boot to Windows 10 then back to Mint 19

Ah, thanks also to you, jimallyn sir, I'll try that next time! Shutdown instead of restart. I'll note here if it worked. It's an excellent theory, by the way, because the secret to Windows 10 booting up at a decent pace, compared to prior product versions, is that it doesn't actually 'shut down' 'al...

Re: Conky freeze or GPU issue?

I have the same graphics card, or a very close version of it, and recently installed Conky myself. It blinks each time the data updates, which is irritating to me. But I do not have the issue that you have. If I may suggest these ideas to consider: 1. Restart your computer (if you haven't done so si...

Backup Tool's Software Selection Feature Broken in Linux Mint 19

I have installed Linux Mint 19 on two newer laptops recently and for each one the Backup Tool's Software Selection feature generated an empty file. Anyone else with this problem, you can do this in Terminal as a substitute instead, which works and is similar: dpkg -get--selections > ~/Documents/my-s...

Re: "Failed to load module "unity-gtk-module"

Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu Linux, but you may not have to worry as Mint may only use some unity components for some things, to a lesser degree or in a different manner than Ubuntu. I also watch the Update Manager's details and have noticed a multitude of llll-ubuntu-#### 's. Unless the problem is...

Thanks, MrEen sir, glad to have the input of someone with sound card(s) up my alley. I'll try the sleep/wake trick next time and report here if it worked! I've only switched to Windows 10 and then back to Linux Mint 19 maybe 5-6 times and perhaps 3-4 of those times resulted in the loss of sound. And...

Sound only quits working after dual boot to Windows 10 then back to Mint 19

So my Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64-bit install, recent, on my newer laptop, has sound, just fine; but, almost every time I switch to Windows 10, via GRUB as I dual boot, then return to Mint 19, suddenly my sound doesn't work. Note that there is no appearance of a problem. The buttons/levers/sound cards...
