Re: Looking for a driver for Intel HD Graphics Card

As gm10 said. Also (if applicable) a switch from VGA (analog) connection to HDMI or DVI (both digital) might help.

Obviously both your graphics card and your monitor must have such a connector, and you need the right cable for that as well.

Re: Adjusting brightness on Asus GL502V

Step D you mean ... d. From the menu, launch Update Manager. In the toolbar of Update Manager: View - Linux kernels Install the very latest kernel in the list I did that ! I could only see Linux kernel 4.15.0-42.45 in update manager . Bollocks. See (click on the image to enlarge it): https://i.post...

Re: Need help debugging system freezes

Create a new user account, log into that new account, don't change anything at all in it (certainly don't install widgets and such), and test again.

Re: How to monitor CPU activity in detail..?

Thanks...but concy only gives a very coarse grained overview of cpu and the system as a whole. I need as detailed as possible. My Conky, of which you see the screenshots on the web page I referred you to, is very basic and only scratches the surface of what Conky is capable of. See: https://linux.d...

Re: Adjusting brightness on Asus GL502V

You didn't apply step d of the how-to that I recommended in my previous message. That would have given you the latest 4.18 kernel. As to your reluctance to try pre-release kernels: there are some fine Dutch sayings for that. Translated: "If it can't be done the way it should, it should be done the w...

The infamous Mint mouse scroll wheel problem. Never heard of it.

Re: Adjusting brightness on Asus GL502V

Check the support section of the manufacturer of your laptop for an updated BIOS. When available, install it. No avail? Then try the latest kernel of the 4.18 series , by means of the reliable canonical-kernel-team PPA: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/2#TOC-Install-a-brand-new-uns...

Did you ever use BleachBit? That software wrecking ball can cause something similar, when you abort it before it has finished.

Re: Slow boot - Kernel (not userspace)

Don't use sudo for systemd-analyze . Quite unnecessary, and may even have negative side effects. Why is it so? Because systemd-analyze also works without sudo, and because unnecessarily running an application with root authority always carries the risk of messing up file permissions. :wink:
