Saving Display Settings - PC to Smart TV via HDMI

Hi All, I have a H-P Stream 13 that is running the latest Mint with the XFCE DM. It is only used with my Samsung 55" Smart TV. It is connected to the TV via HDMI to only play / stream video content. The problem is every time I re-boot the machine I need to re-configure the machine to properly displa...

Re: VMWare 10.0.1, Mint 17, Kernel 3.17

It seems that VMare is a mess.I have no idea who uses it. Personally, I use VirtualBox to run M$ 7. But, run another OS X (think anything, but orange) via VMWare. Everytime I up-date the Kernel VMWare is not responsive. I am not sure if VMWare is still a viable optiion. I have posted everywhere to t...

Re: VMWare 10.0.1, Mint 17, Kernel 3.17

Hi All,

I have put this issue, on the back burner, and I thought that I'd ask again how to patch VMWare. Any VMWare version - 10.0/1/2 - and Linux Kernel 3.17.

Thanks, in advance, for any assistance.

Re: VMWare 10.0.1, Mint 17, Kernel 3.17

Hi All,

Still looking for a solution - VMWare & Kernel 3.17.

At this point - I would also need to scrub my disc of any, and all VMWare stuff, to do a clean install.

Help?

Re: VMWare 10.0.1, Mint 17, Kernel 3.17

Michel,

VB works great after any Kernel up-grade. VMWare is a different story. I have an X system waiting to up-grade. But, can't get VMare going.

I have posted / asked everywhere.

Re: VMWare 10.0.1, Mint 17, Kernel 3.17

Michel,

We are talking about VMWare, not VirtualBox. I Love VB, which runs MS7. But, I have a peculiar OS, that ran well until my Kernel (3.17) up-grade. I am still looking for the patch.

I have Googled, and tried eveything. I would kiss VMWare goodbye, but this OS is special.

Re: VMWare 10.0.1, Mint 17, Kernel 3.17

Hi All,

I keep going at this. I use VirtualBox to run M$ 7, and - am trying - after a Kernel up-grade (3.17) to get my VMWare back. I have (had) another OS running there. All was great!

I have tried numerous scripts / patches, but no help.

Any help?
