Re: GPG error in Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa

@ezau_primo, @gm10 wrote, (above), that he had fixed this problem in Mint 19.2, when it comes out. Well, 19.2 is out now. (Upgrade instruction at https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3792.) Upgrade to 19.2, then try your brightness controller installation again. Let us know how it works.

Re: Any recommendations for typing practice software?

tenfoot, thanks for the list. I installed GNU Typist, (gtypist); I like the free software concept.

Recommendations from others are still welcome, for possible future use, or for the benefit of other people who might read this thread.

Any recommendations for typing practice software?

I have a second grade grandson to whom I'm beginning to teach html and css, and hate to see him hunt-and-peck.

[Solved] Where's the Trash Can, (Trash Folder, Trash Directory, Rubbish Bin)?

Where's the Trash Folder in Mint? (Like the Recycle Bin in Windows?) I found two answers. 1) If it's not on your Desktop, you can put it there: Menu > System Settings > Desktop > change the Trash setting from Off to On. Or, if you don't like icons on your desktop, 2) Menu > Files > Go > Trash. Opens...

Re: [Solved] Where would I find a driver for an nVidia GeForce FX5200?

Thanks Pjotr. I had most of those switches turned off. I turned off two more. It might have helped a little bit. I'm thinking my problem isn't just slow display, but rather a slow machine overall; and, that it's time to replace the machine. It was snappy when new in 2003, running Windows XP; but, is...

Re: Which AGP cards work on an IBM P50 tower?

Well, you do need a driver for a graphics card; but, for nVidia cards, the Mint distribution comes with an open-source one, called nouveau. Mint will use that one if you install no other. And, as to which AGP cards work on an IBM P50 tower, no one has come up with a list, or other source for that in...

Thank you, fellows. You've all been helpful. kyphi , thank you; I didn't know the Driver Manager was there. I ran it, but it showed no drivers, so I guess the nouveau driver doesn't show up. Also, the Manager made no suggestions. All it said was, "No proprietary drivers are in use." IAmDarthMole , t...

[Solved] Where would I find a driver for an nVidia GeForce FX5200?

I'm running Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon 4.0.9 on a 32-bit machine. I just installed an nVidia GeForce FX 5200 AGP graphics card. System Info recognizes it as NVIDIA Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200].

Re: Which AGP cards work on an IBM P50 tower?

I bought an nVidia GeForce FX5200, 256 Mb, on eBay. It came today. I think the screen is crisper; but, faster? No.

On Linux, do you need to download any drivers or anything for a graphics card?

You're right that this is a 2003 machine. Preferences > System Info, says, "Graphics Card Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller".

Re: Which AGP cards work on an IBM P50 tower?

All I want to run is my VGA monitor.

My problem is that without a graphics card, the CPU has to process all the screen painting. Which makes scrolling slow and clunky. I want an AGP card to process my browser's and text editor's outputs.
