Re: Mint 17 Cinnamon Full screen Tearing

indeed report is needed.
But I think tearing issue is not a new. And since v.2 cinnamon arrival we still don't have an answer to that problem. Sad but true.

Re: Mint 17 Cinnamon Full screen Tearing

I've forgotten to tell that I'm using latest available Cinnamon on Mint 13. It's a 2.0.14 now. (from backports software sources enabled)

So the issue tearing might appear on all v.2 Cinnamon editions I guess.

I try using math software Comsol (ex Femlab) which is officially supported by ubuntu 12.04 (http://www.comsol.com/system-requirements) But I'm facing Java Runtime Environment error.

Re: Nvidia driver updated, activated but not in use

It is correctly installed. When you go to the additional Driver menu, does is still it's not in use? Yep. The same. Still is not in use. I did rebooted after driver update in the beginning.

Re: Different core versions Mint 13 vs Ubuntu 12.04

Thank you abnvolk!
Since my mintUpdate doesn't offer updates any more, then I did some updates via apt-get update && upgrade. Now I understand that I did wrong.

How big the problem I have now, since I want to stay in "stable" kernels' zone?
