Mint 20 Mate - some issues

I've installed Mint20 Mate on a Dell Inspiron 3585 with Ryzen 5. Great job on Linux Mint, I feel I'm in control far more than windows - thanks. :D Two things I wonder if should be communicated to someone for future development. 1. I experienced and solved intermittent wi-fi, same as on Mint 19 Mate ...

Re: [SOLVED] laptop camera white balance

Yes, seems like they do, there's no green tinge on zoom after a reboot. This time It was very yellow but I'm now in artificial light, so I guessed it needs readjusting; I closed zoom, launched Guvcview, clicked White Temp. Balance Auto, closed Guvcview, and launched zoom giving a better colour balan...

Re: laptop camera white balance

Ok, I installed a video capture app which got rid of the green tinge. So here’s my summary for anyone else with a similar problem. OBS Studio – installed this, complex interface, clicked ‘white colour temp. auto’, made no difference to the image, took white balance temp. slider to extreme (6500) whi...

Re: webcam image to dark

Thanks BG405, guess I'll write a new post on installing webcamoid.

Re: webcam image to dark

Many thanks for the info and screenshot (interesting one of a loft?!) which looks like a potential solution. But I installed webcamoid, and like all others in the reviews, it would not launch. One reviewer installed v1.0 from github which would be a new experience for me. Did you have any similar di...

Re: webcam image to dark

Hi CoyoteUK5, I have a similar problem with a Dell Inspiron - using zoom I get a green tinge which I'm told is white colour balance.
But I don't know how to access any settings for the integrated webcam.
Can you tell me how you solved your dark image?

[SOLVED] laptop camera white balance

I'm using MInt 19.1 on a Dell Inspiron laptop, the camera is giving me a green tinge which I'm told is due to incorrect white balance. Using OBS studio I can correct this by pushing the white balance slider to one extreme. However I can find no adjustment for zoom video conferencing - is there a way...

Re: Whether to upgrade

PS if install LM19.3, is it best to clean install, or use the upgrade in the Update Manager, or doesn't it matter? Thanks,

Re: intermittent wifi

Thanks, I couldn't see anyway of updating the router, it's a Virgin SuperHub and I think they may do the updating.
I've been using the laptop on and off today so here's hoping, will be busy next few days but will post again perhaps next week.
