Re: Update Manager improvements not carried through to Mate.

The latest kernel is always the most secure, because (with some very rare exceptions) *all* kernel updates contain security fixes. :mrgreen:

Re: i got a beta version of gimp - why?

This is probably what gave you the bèta:

Code: Select all

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/otto-kesselgulasch/gimp-edge/ubuntu xenial main

It's pretty simple really: if you don't want unstable stuff, don't add the PPA that gives you such stuff. :mrgreen:

Wat is dat eigenlijk die CMS?

Een truukje, waardoor UEFI zich gaat gedragen alsof het ouderwets BIOS is. :)

Re: Lenovo computer installeren

OK.... Schakel CSM eens in en probeer het opnieuw. Mogelijk moet je dan de installatie van Mint even herhalen, wegens veranderde BIOS-modus.

Re: Random freezes during installation from usb

Boot Mint in compatibility mode. And if you have an Nvidia video card, boot with the "nomodeset" parameter as well:

Re: Running in software rendering mode.

First install Mint on your hard drive, because the live USB is static and isn't fit for improvement. Then do this: Upgrade to the latest kernel of the 4.11 series : Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels Afterwards, reboot. Then launch Driver Manager and install the closed non-free Nvidia driv...

Re: NVIDIA C61 GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 X2

Arggggg! Okay, will try that. Will Xfce really fix this Graphics issue Pjotr? and how will "speed tweaks" help graphics? "Fix" is a big word, but Xfce will certainly help: it's noticeably less demanding on the system resources, especially where graphics are concerned. The speed ...

Re: Schermresolutie verbeteren

Probeer het eens met de nieuwste systeemkern van de 4.4-serie. Na installatie: start ervan op door in het opstartmenu van Grub, te kiezen voor Geavanceerd. Als alles goed werkt: verwijder alle geïnstalleerde systeemkernen van nieuwere series (4.8, 4.10 en 4.11).

Re: NVIDIA C61 GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 X2

For that particular video card, you need Mint 17.1 and its default 3.13 kernel series. Because only then you can install the closed non-free Nvidia driver for it. Simply by launching Driver Manager and selecting the recommended non-free driver. It's an old driver, which is unfit for newer kernel ser...
