no it is not on the list but isnt this list old? Yes, but that doesn't matter. The list hasn't changed all that much and your card is still not listed. Here is the latest link: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-amdgpu-unified-linux-21-20 The latest link has "AMD Radeon™ RX 570...

Re: Weird glitch: Cinnamon windows cutting off when too large

yeah, i'm on 20.2 beta mintupdate doesn't want to give me the update though i don't know why it doesn't show 20.2 final If I recall correctly, mintupdate was updated before the update to LM20.2 came through on my LM20.1 install. I do not know what version you might need for the beta LM20.2 to upgra...

Re: Software Manager Startup Problem with Linux Mint 20.2

Or you could try removing and reinstalling Software Manager. Do the following one line at a time.

Code: Select all

apt reinstall mintinstall
mintinstall 
Then reboot.

I will try the LIVE CD next and let you know what happens. Anything I should try while in there?
I do not have any suggestions. Normally, when the graphic drivers install properly (and the data you posted does seem like they did), the monitor is picked up properly.

Re: Dell 5565 LCD + 2nd monitor: Viewsonic older LCD Makes Laptop display wonky

It was working at least somewhat correctly when I first tried it out, but now MAYBE because I was tinkering with settings it's not working much at all? You were tinkering with settings on the monitor or on Mint? If it was on Mint, boot to a live session of Mint with your installation usb/dvd and se...

Re: Mint 20.2 , Nvidia driver not loading - No Hardware Acceleration

Previous output of cat /var/log/gpu-manager.log was from Ubuntu 21.04. Mint is based on Ubuntu 20.04 and not 21.04, so that explains why the kernel was unfamiliar to me..

Re: Mint boots only on one monitor, then runs only on the other

I noticed that on first boot, everything is only shown on the DVI monitor, and it doesn't recognize the DP monitor (doesnt show up in the display configuration menu either). Then on reboot, it shows the login screen on the DVI monitor. As soon as I type my password and login, it deactivates (doesnt...

Do you have any idea how to fix the problem? Is your system updated to the latest updates? There was a problem some people were having with Software Manager that was fixed by updating to mintinstall 8.0.8.

Those updates had bug fixes in them. I do not know how they might affect your situation, but if they do then you may want to post on Github so the developers know of this issue.
