Re: Mint Xfce 32-bit?

Re: Wifi not working after a few minutes - Realtek RTL8822BE

I was able to get my wifi sped-up dramatically 866 Mb/s, but I don't know which of these two custom drivers to use, the RTL8822BE (mid-kid GitHub repository) or the RTW88 (lwfinger GitHub repository). I used the (mid-kid GitHub repository) successfully, but noticed the (lwfinger GitHub repository) h...

Please, check your driver manager version by executing the terminal command:

Code: Select all

dpkg --list mintdrivers
and share the result.

Best regards,

The problem, as stated, was with the live CD. Hopefully the next release will fix the issue.

Driver Manager Hangs with LiveCD (bcmwl-kernel-source)

I know how to get my wireless working, but have problems with the Mint 20 Live USB which hangs when I try to use the Driver Manager to install my wifi. Driver Manager just stays on "Applying changes..." and never enables my wifi. After a half-hour, I just give up on it. The system is not l...

Re: Broadcom CrystalHD Not Configured (Please Help!)

Don't bother in general with old releases like that, have a look here (it's supported for recent Ubuntu releases): https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/crystalhd ... you may have to do some research to find out how to use it though. But that package should be in the standard tested repos for Mint 2...

Broadcom (which of these two drivers is best?)

What is the difference between using the broadcom-sta-dkms or the alternate bcmwl-kernel-source? broadcom-sta-dkms_6.30.223.271-12_all.deb or bcmwl-kernel-source_6.30.223.271+bdcom-0ubuntu5_amd64.deb ? For my needs, the broadcom-sta-dkms was recommended but not included with the Linux 20 installatio...

I have the same problem with Bluetooth on my Toshiba Satellite CL45. I read that the problem is simply that by default the Bluetooth adapter is turned off and can only be turned on in software using a Toshiba utility. :x Toshset is a command-line tool allowing access to much of the Toshiba hardware ...
