Re: Using pixel-perfect half resolution on HiDPI displays

I just wanted to add that I discovered a simpler solution if you're using nvidia GPU: nvidia-settings -a CurrentMetaMode="DP-2: 2880x1800 {ViewPortIn=1440x900, ViewPortOut=2880x180 0, ResamplingMethod=Nearest }, HDMI-0: 1920x1080+1440+0" This gives me crisp upscaling on my macbooks retina screen, wh...

Re: Mint 17 and 18 AMDGPU drivers! Look here before doing anything!

I followed the steps here and got the 17.50 drivers installed just fine on 4.13. Just one question though. A lshw -c video shows the driver as "amdgpu", while I've seen many others listed as "amdgpu-pro" in lshw. The card is a R9 290X. Did I somehow install the wrong driver, or is the "pro" version ...

Re: Mint on a macbook + thunderbolt display?

But the important thing is, is that script meant for Ubuntu 16.04/Mint 18.x? Because as far as I can tell the previous solutions failed when that came out. I did not copy / paste the exact script, because it was two lines. first "xrandr <options to disable the display>" and then "xrandr <options to...

Re: Mint on a macbook + thunderbolt display?

What script? Link? If it's intended for Ubuntu 14.04 or earlier I wouldn't recommend it necessarily. You're using a Ubuntu 16.04 based OS and need answers that work in 16.04. I can't find anything that wiorks in 16.04, simple or not. Maybe someone else will. Hm, I lost the link now, will see if I c...

Re: Weird wallpaper zoom bug (multi monitor)

Still getting this bug in Mint 18.3. I can verify it's only when I'm playing with the input on my monitor (two computers connected to one monitor). Seems like if it loses monitor connectivity and regains it, the zoom of the background image bugs out for whatever reason. Edit: Oh and I also noted I a...

Mint on a macbook + thunderbolt display?

Does anyone run Mint on a macbook with a thunderbolt display and got it working? It works fine if the display is connected at boot time (not the built in USB hub though, just the display). Shows up as DisplayPort in xrandr, so not sure if it's pure displayport or DP over thunderbolt connection. Disc...
