Success installing nvidia Mint xfce 19.2

I have read several people with problems and hope this helps out. I looked around, did some searches and found no real solutions to installing nvidia. So I trusted Mint for the solution. Opening mintinstall I found the version 340, installed it and then the nvidia x server settings. Below are my spe...

Hi Beardedragon,

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

There are a couple of tests you can run on microcode vulnerabilities and updates.

Hope this helps ...
Thanks, I got this covered.

Re: Intel Microcode update

I just installed the update and I wonder if there is any test to see if it worked? This is the latest problem and I had seen mention of it when upgrading, never understood what it means. To see what microcode revision your system is using. dmesg | grep microcode e.g. in my output (procesor is a i5-...

Re: How do I switch my desktop environment to XFCE or anothe

So crunchbang is dead. Have you guys gone back to LM or using something else? Personally I moved from Saline, which died, to Manjaro. They have Xfce and KDE as main desktops plus options to add other desktops later. It is a rolling update system with Stable, Testing and Unstable updates, your choic...

You are correct, sorry for the misprint. The OP will still need a GUI.

Re: How can I install an epson scanner on linux mint 14?

You are just missing a GUI (Graphical User Interface) I suggest "xine," you can find it in Synaptic Package Manager. The application will look for your hardware when you start it up, so be sure the scanner is on and plugged into your USB port.

Re: Nvidia Radeon

Did you install Mint 15 before or after changing to the ATI Card? My HP came with ATI Radeon HD3000 and I did not even need a proprietary driver when I installed Mint 15. You get the 3D by running the Compositor, either Gnome or Xfce.

In a word "No." There are too many old and new graphic cards and drivers to get one to work for all of them.
