Re: Disable "check your video drives" *notification*

The issue I'm trying to resolve is not specific to virtualisation, nor specific to my configuration. Having looked at the Cinnamon's code, I've discovered that the warning is displayed in the following circumstances: * Software rendering is being used. * The environment variable CINNAMON_2D is not s...

Re: Disable "check your video drives" *notification*

Mint installs graphics device and display drivers as part of the installation. It is not a separate step in the installation process to install graphics drivers. There may be additional steps needed to get the most appropriate graphics drivers installed after the installation is complete, but the b...

Xed Hyphenation

At some point recently (I can't find any reference to it by Googling), Xed has grown the ability to automatically hyphenate text when line wrapping is enabled (i.e. in the default state).

<SOLVED> Disable "check your video drives" *notification*

Hi, I'm running Mint Cinnamon in a configuration where 3D acceleration simply isn't available (I don't think the details of exactly what configuration that is are relevant). I'm fine with that, software-rendered desktop performance is perfectly acceptable and I don't intend to run anything 3D. Unfor...
