Re: [SOLVED] LMDE mouse lockup after 2/22/2011 Updates

Thank you - this also worked for my ACER Aspire laptop :D With another computer I first downloaded the files (which I found with Google, not on Debian site?!) and next copied them to the desktop of my messed up laptop with the help of an external mouse that I plugged in for that task. Next I did fol...

Re: Low resolutions fail under Mint 9 (ATI Radeon Xpress 110

look for xorg.conf configuration What should your resolution be? Thanks yes I think so, probably (where are instructions how to do that?). My resolution for old games should be just the resolution of 640 x 480 that doesn't work. My usual, native resolution is no problem, it's 1280x800 or so (now I'...

Low resolutions fail under Mint 9 (ATI Radeon Xpress 1100)

Hello I have been trying all versions of Mint 9 and they all have the same weird problem: Old games under Wine produce a black screen! :shock: I discovered that it is a display problem: the low resolutions don't work (no problem with Mint 6 and 8 ). More precisely, the resolution 640 x 480 is suppos...

Re: Bad news about user Husse

For the first time since its release, I'm sorry Helena is already out...all of a sudden it looks appropriate to have a release of Husse:( That's an idea - see below! I have not visited this site for some weeks, and now this, I was shocked! :( "Husse" appears everywhere in this board, there can be n...

Re: If your scanner doesn't work

Well my scanner Canon Lide 50 doesn't work with Mint 8. :( What happens is that the scanner is recognized but when I want a preview or scan (with the scanner utility or with Xsane which I also installed by now), the waiting time is infinite. Sometimes (usually not) there is a sound from the scanner ...

Re: Monitor Issues with Linux Mint 8...

I have a slightly different issue: I LOST the native 1280 x 800 resolution that I had (without any problem) from the start! :( Yesterday I connected my laptop to the TV with the monitor cable, and both screens were displayed at the same time. This made the computer select a lower resolution. Today ...

Buggy panel: disappearing launcher icons

This is maybe technically not a bug.. but it surely bugged me for many hours and I almost reinstalled my system due to this! :x After playing around with the Gnome panel for a while, adding and removing shortcuts for Firefox etc., I encountered the problem of disappearing launcher icons. Dragging on...

Re: ATI radeon graphics

All right!! Now, there really is some serious improvement in the open source drivers... I just tried Karmic Koala live cd on my laptop and installed a couple of apps I thought would require some "skill" on the part of the drivers... So, I installed: -Stellarium -SuperTuxKart -ExtemeTuxRacer Stellar...

Re: Mint 8 Helena X64 No Good for wine 3D?? Mint standard is OK

Thanks RedWagon for the quick reply! I had not realized that the display drivers in X64 differ from those in 32 bit... Since you run games with wine in X64 Helena without problems, then the problem is related to incompatibility of Helena X64 with my graphics card and I can forget about trying to fin...

Mint 8 Helena X64 No Good for wine 3D?? Mint standard is OK

Hello I tried out the standard 32 bits Mint Helena as well as the 64 bits, and installed the 64 version as it seemed to be without problems. However, it turned out that 3D acceleration just does NOT work on my computer with 64 bit Helena. It DOES work with Helena standard, on my ATI Radean Xpress 11...
