Re: Trying to update NVidia driver, World of Warcraft issues [SOLVED]

An Addendum to my last Addendum: For those following this thread... things have changed again, and for the better. Today my Update Manager came up with an update for Wine. After installing it I discovered I now have Staging version 6.0, replacing the previous 5.22 version. When launching my game fro...

Re: Trying to update NVidia driver, World of Warcraft issues [SOLVED]

Addendum: I thought I should update this thread because a few things have changed since I posted it. For one thing, as of late November 2020, the Driver Manager lists NVIDIA Driver Version 455.38 as the recommended package. I'm using it and it works fine on my system. The video driver is not what's ...

Re: Bad xdg-utils Update on the Update Manager [SOLVED]

Okay, I've marked this topic as SOLVED and hereby retract my earlier statement that there's something wrong with the xdg-utils update. Hoser Rob was absolutely right and the issue is with WINE, not the other updates. I have installed the update (my Update Manager now tells me my system is up to date...

Re: Bad xdg-utils Update on the Update Manager

This is more likely a problem with WIne, which is actually a very unreliable stupid hack which has a bad habit of breaking after you update the system. You should try the Wine forums for this. Thanks, Rob. I'll look into that. I concur that WINE is problematic... we were using the "regular&quo...

Bad xdg-utils Update on the Update Manager [SOLVED]

Today (26 November) my Update Manager alerted me to a new update. I always just install every available update whenever one pops up. Oh, and I'm on Linux Mint 20 Ulyana Cinnamon. This particular update caused problems. It is called "xdg-utils" version 1.1.3-2ubuntu1.20.04.1 and it says it ...

Re: Trying to update NVidia driver, World of Warcraft issues

Hello, Eric and SMG Thanks for your responses! Today I decided it was long past the time to upgrade from 19.3 to 20, so I did it. In the process, of course, you have to downgrade and disable those foreign programs like Wine, which I did. When Mint 20 was up and running, I had to re-install Wine. I'm...

Re: Trying to update NVidia driver, World of Warcraft issues

Addendum: Still trying to find a way to install the new NVidia 455.28 video driver onto my system. It doesn't show up yet on the Driver Manager or Update Manager. I went to the official NVidia site and downloaded the driver which left a file on my desktop called "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-455.28.run&...

Trying to update NVidia driver, World of Warcraft issues [SOLVED]

Greetings, my friends! I still have Mint 19.3, 64-bit, Cinnamon, and haven't yet upgraded to Mint 20. It will probably happen soon but I've been reluctant to pull the trigger on it yet. My PC graphics card is a GTX 1070. My wife and I both play World of Warcraft (WoW) with Lutris/Wine and it was wor...

Re: Blizzard game installation issue

I think I may have solved this one. The key was in the Lutris configuration files, and I was expending a lot of wasted effort fussing with the Battle.net installer. While modifying the configuration file in Lutris I found the WoW.exe file, clicked on it, and Lutris popped up a message saying Wine wa...

Greetings, friends. (LM Tricia 19.3 Cinnamon) I used to play a lot of games when I had Win7. Last week, thanks to all the wonderful help I have been getting here, I finally removed my Windows partition and my machine no longer dual-boots. I'm fully onboard with Linux. Yay! So now for the gaming part...

Re: Mouse Driver Software

Hi, everyone I went back and looked again at some work-arounds and revisited the web looking for more clues. In an article I read it said that an extension called AutoScroll was made specifically for Linux and Mac users who didn't have the same scroll tool as the Microsoft crowd. I tried it and it d...

Re: Mouse Driver Software

I know exactly what you mean about the little scroll icon that lets you scroll the page continuously, my Windows PC at work operates like this. On my LM PC at home I've left the scroll-wheel at the default setting (copying selected text) and I set up the two side buttons to do a Close Tab (Ctrl + W...

Re: Mouse Driver Software

I have a 5 button rodents that "just work". That said, the wheel click, operates as a double click, the extra buttons work as forward and backward in my browsers. I have not attempted to re-map them in any way. They are all "be" branded mice (i.e. no name, but others should work...

Re: Mouse Driver Software

Update: Still haven't figured out how to make the wheel button (middle click) work. Using the xte line in .xbindkeysrc allows me to put in any keystroke combo, like ctrl-shift-F7 or the like, but I don't know the magic combo to get the autoscroll icon to toggle on and off in Chrome/Chromium. I belie...

Perhaps this might help? Hi, CapraFan, and thank you! I did see this in my wandering exploration around the Internet during one of my searches.
