Re: Radeon Xpress 200 - No 3D?

While this GPU is considered very weak by gamers on the edge, still it does do 3D with Linux! glxgears -info 300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.986 FPS There are some older games you can play with it. Still; it's better to get an add on card if you have a slot for it(desktop). Look for a free discarded ...

Re: Graphics drivers?

Test all hardware devices first and backup your data! Clean mouse? Check all fans. :) You could note some hardware sensor applets added to your panel. Meaning monitor memory usage, CPU/GPU temp and speed (vacuum out your computer), hard drive temp and also Internet speeds. Also CPU thermal paste may...

Re: HP BIOS flash WITHOUT Windows. Non-EFI SOLVED

AND it's ALL hidden in that iso in the exe, for a BIOS flash with no windows required. Incompetence? And ...

Re: Linux Mint 12, no panels, just desktop with 2 icons

Trust me, Gnome 3 shell didn't like my Geforce card, for some unknown reason. This is exactly why, gnome 2 should still be available (Mate proves that), while Gnome 3 and its shell is being stabilized, and not you for some, but mostly everyone, with more than sufficient hardware. It's history now, a...

Re: upgrade to 12-Lisa is downgrade

A. His point is not lost on me. Gnome 2 was a work in progress also, just not like, these. B. That fact that Gnome 2 has stopped, this way, is the problem. When you say Mate is a work in progress, I take that to indicate it's new forked nature, and the need to work out bugs. Mate seems to have less ...

I managed a way to run the gnome-tweak-tool, in the largely unresponsive (from the start of it) gnome shell. It was extremely tricky.
