Re: Tried Intel Drivers and Now Have a Blank Screen

Tried the 32bit and it still does it. Got the blank screen fixed, but can hardly use this computer with Linux.

Re: Cant Play YouTube Video Very Good With Mint Xfce

I guess if no one can answer my question, does anyone have an extra Windows Disc for sale? Windows doesn't have any problems on this computer.

Re: Tried Intel Drivers and Now Have a Blank Screen

Just thought of something. All my Linux Discs are for my main computer, a 64bit. If this is 32bit, I may be installing a 64bit OS on a 32bit system. Can this cause the problem I'm having?

Thank you,
Chris.

Re: Tried Intel Drivers and Now Have a Blank Screen

Cant get the usb out of this computer. "Busy."

One thing good is it must be the USB Drive and not the computer, since it's now doing it on both. I'll post in a different forum for that problem.

Re: Cant Play YouTube Video Very Good With Mint Xfce

Went back to the same thing. The whole system is taxed so much. Never thought Mint Xfce would be way heaver then Windows Vista.

I tried the intel drivers to see if that would fix it, and rebooted to a blank screen. Since it is a different problem, I posted a new thread.

Thank you,
Chris.

I have an old computer, it's a Celeron 2Ghz, with Intel on board Video. Worked real good in Windows Vista. Seems Linux Mint Xfce taxes the computer so much, I can hardly use it. Can hardly watch video on youtube (Gig connection, trying it with 65Mbps, so connection is not the problem). Since video i...

Open the Window Manager Tweaks program, go to the Compositor tab, and un-check the "Enable Display Compositing" checkbox.
Logout/login or even reboot.
Looks like that did the trick. What exactly did that do?

Thank you,

Cant Play YouTube Video Very Good With Mint Xfce

I have an old computer I used to install Mint Cinnamon 18.2. I had video tearing, so I installed Mint Xfce, since it was supposed to use less system for older computers. I can't even watch youtube type videos. Even on a non-HD, 420 video, it skips around so much you cant watch. You start the video, ...

Getting the Cinnamon clock screen saver in xfce

I used Mint Cinnamon 18.2 and love the clock screen saver. I installed Mint xfce and it doesn't have it. What's the easiest way to get that clock screen saver in xfce version? Hopefully, I don't have to download a bunch, all I want is that one screen saver. Kind of sad that version doesn't have it. ...

systemd 229-4ubuntu19

I see an update (cinnamon 18.2) "systemd 229-4ubuntu19." On the web page, showing default programs, I see Mint comes with systemd 229. Under the description, it says, "Installing the systemd package will not switch your init system...." Does this mean Mint 18.2 doesn't come with systemd as default? ...

Want Pop up, Not Start up on USB.

When I insert a USB thumb drive, it will start playing the songs on the USB. If I'm looking for a document, that can be a hassle. I can go into "system Settings" "Preferred Applications" and turn off, "Prompt or start programs on media insertion" and that will stop it from auto playing when I insert...

Re: Thanks for the Mint Team for (Kind of) Fixing These or Adding These Features

Hmm... The reason I asked is that I have 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit and Audacity and haven't had a problem with it. Do you think any of your audio files are corrupt? The same files work in Windows, just not Mint. I installed Mint 17.3 (Mint 18 doesn't work with my computer) and I have the same problem. W...

It's possible to install the mate-panel package in an XFCE environment without making a horrible mess. Then redirect attempts to start xfce4-panel with a link... cd /usr/local/bin && sudo ln -s /usr/bin/mate-panel xfce4-panel Mate-panel works well in an Openbox installation too. New Mint-Mate, the ...

Re: Can I Download MATE Tweeks for MATE 17.3 like ubuntu?

Thank you for the reply, I already have it like that (in Mint xfce). Actually, I found a better way. Put the panel at the top, make it a status bar, add a panel to the bottom, don't stretch, Put icons on bottom panel. Don't even need to download anything! Didn't like the weird side things off the do...

Is a "D" and a "d" the Same When Checking The 256sum?

I downloaded MInt 17.3 MATE. When I checked the sha256sum, I got all the same numbers, except one. One had a "D" where the other had a "d". Here are the numbers.
