Re: Ubuntu is NOT dropping all 32-bit support going forward

This whole thing seems to have been mishandled by Canonical. Perhaps they need to hire somebody for PR.

Re: How to steam photos to a tv?

Setting up a Plex server is a popular way to do this, but that may be overkill for what you want.

Re: Logitech F310 Gamepad: does it work with LM?

I believe that controller is supported in Steam. You may need to apt-get install steam-devices

Re: [Steam+Proton] Skyrim Special Edition issues

I think this may require specialists. I recommend visiting The Proton Database Discord server, and posting in the proton-game-support channel.

Re: Help installing Linux Mint (Mate)

You will need a small partition for your UEFI, but Linux Mint now uses a swap file rather than a swap partition by default.

Re: Why are there windows files after installing mint?

Like a leftover Windows partition? Maybe a Windows recovery partition? You could install Gparted to remove those if that's the case.

Re: Booting problem

I don't know what kind of PC or motherboard you have, but F9 or F11 right as the BIOS POSTs are common shortcut keys to get to the boot menu.

Re: Video editing PC - what components should I buy?

Video editing demands can vary on how big and involved your project is. For editing something basic using a program like Kdenlive, those specs should be fine. I would recommend a PC that can be upgraded.

Re: Booting problem

Most modern PCs have a boot menu where you can select what to boot from. Do you have that option?

I also ran into a system once that wouldn't boot from a USB 3.0 port, so I had to switch the thumb drive to a USB 2.0 port.

I'm officially out of ideas. Anyone else?

edit: Actually found somebody with a similar issue on the Razer forums! Not sure if the solution fixed their issue. https://insider.razer.com/index.php?thr ... ort.48902/

Re: External Display Not detecting input.

Have you tried reverting to the Nouveau drivers and see if things work there?
