Re: linux mint cinnamon 20.1 does not always wake up

Have you tried plugging the hub into a different usb port to see if there is any difference?

Not all usb ports on your computer are connected internally to the same hub, so this might be related to a power distribution issue inside the computer.

Re: LM20.1-Mesa Update Crashes Cinnamon

Normally, in this type of situation I would say it is a test and see as new versions come out. However, I'm not sure exactly where the problem lies and this will not be a computer you have available to you, so I do not have a good suggestion. Sorry. :( Maybe someone else will have some ideas on how ...

It’s not at all clear to me how I would go about selecting a different adapter. I have a GeForce GTX 660 graphics card from Nvidia. Your ...

Re: intel iris xe graphic in mint 20.1

why mint 20.1 shows "02.0 VGA compatible controller" under system info? That 02.0 corresponds to the bus ID: 0000:00:02.0 below and it is a VGA compatible controller. You posted the graphics information which shows the drivers and the renderer are loaded. I presume you installed the 5.8 k...

Looking around the net it seems that the driver for my Nvidia Geforce 7100 graphics card may be to blame. The current driver is "nouveau" which seems to be the standard used by many distros. I downloaded the Nvidia recommended driver but it is so very slow in loading that I doubt it will ...

That leads to some screen tear, which I "fix" by settings the wallpaper once again and then continue on. Reason I did this most of the time was the convernience of my personal set-up over the fallback, e.g. shortcuts etc. Hopefully, the reinstall will clear up all the Cinnamon fallback is...

Although I have helped people get games working due to graphic driver related issues, I do not game so I do not know all the terms.

In case you did not know, there is a Gaming on Linux Mint section to the forum. I do not know if any of the threads there might help you with this situation.

Will this problem be corrected with a patch or in future LM releases? This issue relates to the timing of the loading of the Nvidia driver files in relation to when the nouveau driver files load during the boot cycle. It seems a lot more people have needed to use this workaround since the Nvidia-46...
