Re: VNC really slow

My favoured combination is realVNC's Chrome app as a client and x11vnc as the server tunnelled through SSH with compression on. Won't this do ...

VNC really slow

Is there any alternative to VNC? I am using it to log into my system on the occasional basis and it's really slow in refreshing the screening.

Is there anything similar to RDP that lets me log in remotely to a different session rather than desktop sharing?

Re: Hello from new Noob

Doing it with my nephews so going to introduce them to Linux too. I get the impression that a lot of Linux adopters very quickly see how good it is and pass it on. Not so with Windows! I know a lot use and like it (and refuse to change) but even those people do not tend to actively promote it. Welc...

Re: Fresh Install on new system running in Software Rendering Mode

Managed to fix this. Putting my solution in case it helps anyone else. I ended up re-installing Linux Mint again. Once it loaded it still said it was using the software rendering. I edited the line in the Grub file as per this link > http://joshuakanz.com/ubuntu/Coffee-Lake-GPU-Linux-Alpha-Support/ ...

Re: Fresh Install on new system running in Software Rendering Mode

I did this > https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2377324&p=13710326#post13710326 so now it doesn't give the software render error but whenever I open an application such as the terminal I get a transparent...

Re: Fresh Install on new system running in Software Rendering Mode

Yeah so now when I boot into Mint it doesn't say it's using Software rendering but when I open any kind of window (except the default welcome window) it's just a box outline with nothing inside it.

Re: Fresh Install on new system running in Software Rendering Mode

I seem to have fixed it using the solution here: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2377324 although I think it might just be this that is needed: http://joshuakanz.com/ubuntu/Coffee-Lake-GPU-Linux-Alpha-Support/ although now when I open the terminal its just an outline with nothing inside :(

Re: MSI Z370M compatibility

How do I make sure I am using the latest Kernel?

I was going to make a boot USB using the latest download available (18.3) is that all I need to do?

I am building my own PC with plan to install Linux Mint after a friend recommended it as I want to learn Linux and also for networking virtualisation (GNS3 etc). I ...
