Re: Mint Not Installing On A Fresh SSD

But you can boot to the live mint system from a USB?

If you use Gparted first can you create your partition layout on the SSD?
ie; root, home, swap ?

Re: Time to clone and upgrade laptop HDD to SSD

Re: Some flash contents not playing

You know some sites are just plain awkward and don't comply with open standards, perhaps they don't even need to.

Trouble is no one can really test this easily unless they live in the area required

Have you tried the drm workaround using FF in wine?

Re: Mint 18.2 Never SLEEPS ! (suspend)

It can sometimes be an issue related to the GPU - For example nVidia and the driver
It's a longtime since I experienced any issues though so I don't recall the solution/s

That was Easy

Just inherited, after a fashion, a laptop with Optimus Graphics (Intel/nVidia)

No jumping thru hoops in Mint
nVidia prime I noticed was already installed
I ran the driver installer and accepted the recommended nvidia driver
And it's all perfect

Re: Mint 18 Cinnamon kills keyboard & touchpad

I guess you sort of answered your own question, though Ubuntu and Mint are so alike you may find it has the same issues. Always worth exploring whatever might work for you as it does sound like your machine has issues anyway

Some brute force is required IIRC I did work work for customers recently who wanted just Mint. But they were not ASUS though. Pretty sure I had to use Legacy mode in the B...
