Re: Another Broadcom 4306 Install problem...

I have this exact same setup (Linux Mint 11, Latitude D600, Broadcom BCM4306 rev 02) but I'm not able to install b43 legacy. Here's the error: Setting up b43-fwcutter (1:013-3) ... Setting up firmware-b43legacy-installer (4.178.10.4-5) ... Not supported card here (PCI id 14e4:165 14e4:4320)! Use b43...

Re: Click response problems with touchpad buttons

Another side topic...correct me if I'm wrong, but strictly speaking, xorg.conf isn't created by Mint itself, but from the X Server. It can also be created and modified by other utilities and drivers; for example, if you have a nvidia device, it can create a xorg.conf through nvidia-xconfig. Because...

Re: Click response problems with touchpad buttons

Installing mint actually creates an Xorg.conf Actually it doesn't. Actually, it does. ;) Or how can you explain how I ended up with one on a virgin Mint 8 install, minutes after installing? Basically it went like this: 1) Install Mint 8 2) Notice how awful video performance is 3) Use the "find" com...

Re: Click response problems with touchpad buttons

Copying someone else's settings is risky as whilst on the same model, his configuration could be completely different, was he even on the same version of mint? Yes he was. And I realize that it can be risky. His was not the first I tried. However it was the first to actually work ... which includes...

Re: Click response problems with touchpad buttons

OK, but you should know that most of the options you have specified will be ignored, see the xorg log file. You certainly don't need the dri and inputdevices sections and probably not the module and screen either. Fair enough. I was just going by settings from someone else who had the same problems...

Re: Click response problems with touchpad buttons

You don't generally need an xorg.conf file in mint 8. Try renaming this and restarting and see if your problem persist. Until I made the custom file, I was getting horrible video performance as Mint was using a plain VESA driver. So unfortunately a custom Xorg.conf file is apparently necessary to g...

Click response problems with touchpad buttons

Hi there. New Mint user here, first time posting. Just got it set up. Linux Mint 8, main (Ubuntu/Gnome) version. (Incidentally: where the heck does Mint tell you, after install, what version you're on???). Installed on a Dell Latitude D600. Problems: Intermittently, clicking on some UI element to "l...
