Re: Linux Mint 13 and Video Cards

I don't think the mint guys can easily solve these problems.
The problems are coming from upstream and they also have no control over propriety video drivers.

Re: Linux Mint 13 and Video Cards

What's wrong with the latest Nividia drivers. :( A few weeks ago they installed fine..... now they fail to install in kde and mess up the default driver. Use to work on Cinnamon, now my Pc refuses to load Cinnamon after installing and I end up in some fall back mode. This all worked fine a few weeks...

Re: Does this Nvidia card work with mint? (Geforce 7100/)

Installing mint to usb drive is the same as installing it to a hard drive...... No Unetbootin... not necessary Insert your usb drive. Boot your mint live cd. Choose install mint. When asked where to install... go to manual/something else. Choose the usb drive....MB size should lead you to it. Set gr...

Re: Does this Nvidia card work with mint? (Geforce 7100/)

Install mint onto the usb drive and run it from there.... This is the same as installing Mint to a hard drive, just set your PC to boot from your usb drive in the bios and do your testing. To speed up installs its sometimes good to disconnect your Internet while installing, stops Mint downloading la...

Re: Thumbs Up!

After I installed KDE all was good for a hour....

Then the workspace switcher/pager stopped working.
Then the activities desktop thingy broke down, only the first desktop works the rest have frozen icons.
Then the menu button stopped working.

That was the last straw, stopped using it. :?

Re: just wondering...boot speeds...

I installed LM12 64 3 times from the DVD version and each time it broke soon after and would not boot. Decided to try the CD version and install the codecs....... LM 12 is now running very well and seams to be stable. One thing I did notice is that the boot time is much faster... :shock: Wonder if n...

Re: Mint 12 Lisa Final

Today I loaded Linuxmint 12 64 for the third time, loaded all the updates but no luck, it broke again and won't boot.
Think Linuxmint12 should be stamped beta forever and Clem should move on to Linuxmint 13.
There are just to many major bugs for this to be considered as a viable desktop..... :(

Re: My nitpick with Mint's approach

Linuxmint 12 refuses to boot on my pc this morning. Wonder if some update broke it.
Will reload it again when the final version is released or wait for Linuxmint 13.
Will stick to Linuxmint 10 in the meantime.... :D

Re: Changing from Mint10 to Mint11

After reading many posts on this forum I've decided to stick with MInt 10.
Mint 11 seems to have lots more problems and is not as stable as Mint 10.

Will wait and see what Mint 12 brings.... :D
