Lag with Cinnamon and NIVIDIA Drivers

Hi all, I installed LM 18.3 Cinnamon on my desktop. I also installed the NVIDIA drivers using the .run file. I have a GeForce 1060 3GB model that I use for display, and despite how many times I try this, I keep getting a strange lag. If I hold down a key for instance, the character prints, but it pa...

Connecting two Helena PCs with a Crossover Cable

I want to connect my desktop to my netbook with a crossover cable. I bought the cable a few days ago but I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to Linux. I just use it for word processing and the like. I tried to read a few ubuntu tutorials about this but I didn't get anywhere. So could someone please...

netbook-launcher Doesn't Start

I followed the instructions on the forums and installed netbook-launcher, maximus and window-picker-applet so I could make mint look like UNR without having to go to ubuntu. It works, sometimes. Every third boot or so, the conventional gnome desktop shows up. netbook-launcher is there in the startup...

Right when I'm in the middle of copying stuff, Mint says it can't copy to the drive because the drive is read only....
Can anyone please help me out? Plugging it out and replugging it in doesn't help all the time. Sometimes it fixes it but i get the error once again in a few minutes.
