Re: Black Friday - Do you enjoy it or find it tiresome?

I had my eye on a new mechanical keyboard for my adventures in Python. (Online stores)
Then I saw the prices from 12 months and 24 months ago. Realizing I was being ripped even during the BF sale I decided I wouldn't bother.
I'll purchase items as these break on me.

You might want to try a kernel from a newer series on that machine:
Update manager - panel: View - Linux kernels
Install the latest kernel of the 5.8 series. Then reboot.
I will try that, thanks!

Re: Staying with Mint after distro hopping.

Hi AbitOnTheMintySide! Welcome to the forum! Glad to hear that the transition was mostly smooth for you. It was for me. Sometimes after reading the many issues that others experience I think I must have been very fortunate. So far, I've converted 32 machines from Windows to Linux Mint. I still have...

Re: Steam plays games on wrong monitor - Nvidia

Linux is fairly new on my desktop, before I had Windows 10.
So, I'm still waiting for something to go wrong, nothing to report in over 5 weeks of use. It all appears to run smooth.
I'll add more games this evening and see if I have any issues.
Will report back later If it all goes pear shaped.

Re: Steam plays games on wrong monitor - Nvidia

Hello,

I have an almost identical rig as you.
Both my monitors are run from my RTX 2070's displayports, is this the case with your PC, or are you using an HDMI splitter?
No Nvidia software here apart form proprietary drivers.
Asking because I haven't had problems like your having.

Staying with Mint after distro hopping.

Hi all, Former WIndows user that was always looking to get away as soon as Windows 10 came along. I honestly thought making the switch would be dfficult, in reality it's been smooth and almost hassle free. We did some distro hopping but settled with Mint. Mint's GUI and ease of navigation being the ...
