Re: Laptop started turning off display

Is there something specific I can check? because I do not remember setting something. And I again had display of today in the middle of webinar. What else was running at the time of that webinar? What happened after the screen went black? Did you lose sound? Did you restart the computer. If you res...

Re: LMDE5 EOL in 88 days & update to 6 failed

You are implying that Debian support is only “officially” 3yrs and LTS is a non official Debian project. I was not "implying" anything. I gave you links which clearly state the Debian support team only supports for three years and LTS does not support all packages. However, that seems not...

Make sure you have a back-up of it before removing it. I keep emails locally and they are in that directory.

Re: LMDE 6 Will Not Allow Native Monitor Resolution - EDID Issue

In the Windows 11 Devices tree, the monitor shows as "Generic Monitor (Acer XB270H A)". I'm not sure if the trailing 'A' should be there. That is not quite what I was expecting. Seems odd to say "generic monitor" and then give a specific model number. :mrgreen: Maybe there is a ...

Re: "Catch" mouse in top right of a monitor

For example, if you have a panel at the bottom left of your left monitor, the mouse stops if you move it to the bottom right for the "show desktop" button... I'm not sure I understand what you are saying here because if you are on the panel and the panel stops at the monitor's edge (which...

I then connected the Line Out from the Terratec with the Line In from the Micromega in Order to hear the sound....

Re: Graphics driver is installed but no X server setting comes with it

I just installed a fresh version of mint on my pc and used the driver manager to install nvidia-driver-535. If that is what you did, the you would be able to switch using the nvidia-prime-applet. That applet is part of Linux Mint software and not the Nvidia driver. It automatically shows up once th...

Re: Set default user interface scale

The easiest way to see if it is a bug would be if someone else would test it as well. It's not hard. It happens with all full-screen apps I have: Linux apps (mostly games), Lutris apps, Heroic games apps, Steam games and wine apps. Essentially everything that goes full screen. And you can trigger i...

Re: Unable to change resolution and refresh rate of my laptop screen

It sounds like your computer has a MUX switch which means there is either a setting in the BIOS/UEFI where you can set a Hybrid/Switchable (or some other word that indicates more than one option) mode or the mode may be set in Windows. Once you make that change, you should see both the AMD and Nvid...

Re: How to Use DirectX 11 (or another) instead of OpenGL 4.5 in a Unity Engine project in LMDE 6?

By "Lagging behind" I mean that it no longer updates like Vulkan or DirectX, and also Unity works better with the DirectX API instead of OpenGL. Debian is more conservative with updates on system packages, such as Mesa/OpenGL, than other distros. Had you selected a Linux Mint version base...
