Re: New hardware detection

Thanks for your answers. @ DAMIEN1307 - That is precisely why it works with windows (all versions except XP, which needs a possible driver change before the swap). @MrEen Everything is working even with older kernels, even though things may not be optimised. All my distros are working okay. The only...

New hardware detection

Hi, Whenever I change computers, I never reinstall the OSs, I just swap the OSs' drive over. To cut a LONG story short, it works and don't listen to anybody who says otherwise. There is only one showstopper to doing this and it involves Win XP. Back to Linux. Does Linux redetect hardware changes lik...

Re: New network card support

The plot thickens. Please see the attached. Could the install have failed as I do not have internet access due to the networking card issue?

Re: New network card support

Hi there,

Sorry for the delay in answering. I have been fighting windows 8.1 to run on an unsupported chipset (Z390) and have won!

Please see the screenshot from LMDE showing the output of the commands that you requested.

New network card support

I have just got a new computer and the motherboard has an Intel Ethernet I219-V chipset. LMDE does not "find" this card so I cannot even install it manually. I swapped my hard drives from my old PC to this new one and all my Linux distros (except this one and OpenSuSE Tumbleweed) and all my versions...

Re: Upgraded from 18.3 to 19, fails to login.

My upgrade failed too. Grub was not installed to the same place as the 18.3 install (/dev/sda1), it was attempted to be installed on one of my other hard drives' partitions that was formatted as NTFS. So the upgrade failed to boot so I installed LM 19 rather than trying to trouble-shoot a failed upg...

Re: Update manager and kernel updates

Hi chaps,

Pjotr, thanks for the interesting link. I have always installed level 5 updates (and all others) and never ever had an issue.

I'll consider this solved.

Thanks for the help and have a great weekend.

Is this the new way of doing things regarding kernel updates? I do not mind, it just came as a surprise. I always update my kernel so actually pr...

Re: Login screen comes too slow after NVIDIA drivers install

It is not the multibooting that is the issue.

I would live to use the proprietary drivers, but the delay in booting is unacceptable and I do not do anything (luckily) that actually needs them.

Re: Off-screen strangeness

Thanks for your reply. Whilst my laptop *does* have a second graphics card, the laptops had 5 distros installed on it and only Linux Mint KDE has the issue. Also, previous version of Mint KDE worked fine on the same hardware.

Off-screen strangeness

I installed KDE 16 RC and upgraded to the full version using the instructions. Whenever Firefox loads, the window is positioned WAAAAY off-screen to the right. It is very easy to move it back but it keeps on happening with each reboot. Is there a permanent fix for this? Mint 15 KDE was okay and Mint...

Re: nVidia drivers and delayed boot

Normally, these drivers do not cause a problem with Mint. Installing them is one of the first things I do after an install. I have not checked which drivers my other distros are using on the same PC, but none have the issue.

Re: Login screen comes too slow after NVIDIA drivers install

Also having the issue with nVidia proprietary drivers which were not present in the previous versions of Mint.

Don't know whether the issue is with nVidia or Mint.

nVidia drivers and delayed boot

Linux Mint 16. Once I have installed the nVidia proprietary drivers, there is an extra 10-15 seconds added onto the boot time. This goes once the graphic card drivers are reverted to the nouveau ones. The recommended driver is the one I install. This issue has not been present on previous versions o...

Re: Mate spin and Cinnamon install issue

That is the way that I do it, Mate spin then Cinnamon; primarily as Mate has to be set up to appear as it does in the proper spin.

However, installing Cinnamon from the Software Manager does not work; package manager does.

Re: Mate spin and Cinnamon install issue

Because I like to have both desktops in one installation rather than having two separate ones. To change desktop I just have to logout, change desktop and then login rather than rebooting.
