Re: Dual Monitor spookiness

I cannot believe that we are the only two to experience this. Surprised that the coders have not expressed an interest.

Dual Monitor spookiness

Decided to install 20.1 after the upgrade from 20 caused some dependency fails and nvidia driver issues. I have a dual monitor setup. For the first time ever, I had to install using compatibility mode as although the icons were on monitor 2, I could only access them by finding their positions on my ...

Re: LMDE 4 Final

I wonder where they get their copy of the file if not from Mint itself?

Re: LMDE 4 Final

Thanks for your answer. It still does not look right when it appears elsewhere first. I think Mint should wait until it is available from official channels first before disseminating to other sites.

LMDE 4 Final

Why is this available for download from https://www.linuxcompatible.org/story/l ... -released/ and not from the official Mint site (yet)?

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 m...

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.

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.
