ThinkPad W540 won't shut down when Nvidia is selected graphic card

Hello all, As my main computer I use Lenovo ThinkPad W540 (Nvidia Quadro K1100M, Intel® Core™ i7-4810MQ, 16GB of RAM, 250 SSD), and it's stock dock. I also have an external monitor attached Samsung U28E590D (3840x2160 pixels) to the DP of the dock. The laptop's lid is always closed (I use only Samsu...

Re: Can anybody confirm stable work of Mint Mate on Dell XPS 9360?

Hmm. Here is the thing, I'm on the latest Ubuntu Mate. Currently using Kernel 4.16.3. Works acceptable for now, but it's too early to judge. Also, I think that the laptop feels cooler. Maybe I'm mistaken. Will continue the testing. Hopefully someone with the same machine has solid solution.

Re: Can anybody confirm stable work of Mint Mate on Dell XPS 9360?

I don't know what else to do. I like Mint the most, but it seems to lag behind. None of my devices is glitch-free. I bought this Dell just because it should be Linux-friendly (as an opposite to Lenovo ThinkPad's). Turns out Dell also has issues. Hopefully the next version of Linux Mint will be out s...

Re: Can anybody confirm stable work of Mint Mate on Dell XPS 9360?

By default I had 4.15.0.20.23 and 4.15.0.20.21 (not acceptable). Now I'm testing 4.10.17 (kinda ok, but will see). Wanna try 4.4.132 and 4.16.3.

Re: Can anybody confirm stable work of Mint Mate on Dell XPS 9360?

Thanks kc1di. Not much luck. Right edge of the touchpad is completely unresponsive. Will try to experiment Kernels.

Can anybody confirm stable work of Mint Mate on Dell XPS 9360?

Hi,

Can anybody confirm stable work (as daily driver for work, not 5 min test in a virtual box/machine) of Mint Mate on Dell XPS 9360 (with 8th gen Intel)? If so, what Kernel are you using?

I'm currently using latest Ubuntu Mate, but the touchpad is a mess.

Thanks in advance.

The goal would be to stop whatever is in an email from this person to communicate/affects conversation with other people/system.

Re: How to donate without PayPal?

I know, but if the team didn't figure out a way to make the things easy for "donors", I don't feel obligated to harass not-involved person.

Re: How to donate without PayPal?

Bummer on the donation option :-( I'm saying that some other countries doesn't have the same access to payment methods like the US or other "real" countries. Criptos are not an easy option everywhere in the world. PayPal is requiring phone number and forcing your consent to receive marketing promoti...

Re: How to donate without PayPal?

Yes. I know people who have PayPal accounts. But does it has to be such an effort to make a donation? One of the biggest reasons I left Windows was privacy invasion. Now, I wanna do something back for Mint, and beside the action I'm willing to take, I also need to sacrifice my phone number or involv...

Re: How to donate without PayPal?

I've tried it earlier this morning. You can't do it unless you give the phone number to PayPal and create an account. There is no pure bank transaction. It has to go via PayPal.

How to donate without PayPal? SOLVED

Hello,

Is there a way to donate to Mint team without giving your phone number to PayPal and agreeing to be abused? I'd like to symbolically reward Mint team but I don't have PayPal account and I don't want to create a new one. Is there a way to donate via Entropay?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Latest Kernel 4.13.0-38 ruins Lenovo ThinkPad W540

Ok. That was easy. Thank you. Although, graphic is back to "normal", sound and bluetooth are not. I'm getting noise on headphones jack. Bluetooth cannot add, remove or connect a device. I guess I have to reinstall the system.

I'd love to if I know how.

Now I need to spend hours to learn and understand how to revert it and to hope that all my data is going to be ok.
