Re: Cinnamon and Intel Integrated Graphics - Software Rendering Mode

Ran across this concerning Intel graphics. Don't know if it might help with your situation or not but may be worth a read/try. The site belongs to and was written by a member here. I have Intel graphics on a MintBox 2, applied the tweak and everything seems to be working fine ... Step 6 ... Improve ...

An "oh by the way": A few minutes ago when I purchased from Amazon, the selection showed only 1 left in stock @ $112.49 .... It had gone from 2 to 1 in stock in a matter of only a few minutes, so I pulled the trigger on the last one. Now, the link shows "In Stock" @ $145.39. Not ...

... in the meantime, I just sent an email to fit-PC technical support for assistance. Guess I'll find out how responsive they are.
Just thought for sure someone here has a MintBox 2 and upgraded the RAM and could chime in. Thanks !!!

[SOLVED] Need MintBox 2 RAM upgrade Help ? Thanks !!!

MintBox 2 arrived in the mail today. It shipped with 4GB RAM (2GB x 2) and I'd like to upgrade to 16GB (8GB x 2) but not sure I will find and choose the correct RAM. I looked on the Crucial memory site but Compulab /fit-PC isn't listed. I'm sure they have memory that would work ... just afraid I'd p...

Re: Hibernate option disappeared randomly

If you really want it, open a terminal session and try the command near the bottom under "How to undo". Disable hibernation (suspend-to-disk) 2.5. Unfortunately, "hibernate" (suspend-to-disk) is enabled by default in Linux Mint. Which is rather surprising, because in Ubuntu it's ...

Fresh install of Mate 18.2 on Dell Optiplex 745 and Dell Latitude D830. Both built in 2007 and both upgraded with SSD. Have run LM on these two computers for years without seeing this issue and it doesn't happen all the time. Only tweaks performed are selected ones from those suggested by @Pjotr in ...

Re: Desktop not centered

Sounds like you'd have to be a programmer or someone with significant Linux file architecture knowledge to fix this problem. I'm reaching here, but maybe try an older kernel? Also, Cinnamon is the "fanciest" version of Linux Mint. I might would give Mate a try (running well on my old Dell ...

Re: Desktop not centered

Have you tried taking a look at "Driver Manager" to see if an update/recommended display driver is available? In mate, it's in the Control Panel. I know Cinnamon is a little different but you should find "Driver Manager" in the menu or type it in the menu search bar and it should...

Okay, I found a fifth way to bring up the Power Management GUI in Mate and should also work in Cinnamon. There is a search box on the menu. I typed in Power Management entered and it came up.

First make sure the monitor is set to it's correct native resolution. Is it the same monitor and is it the same resolution as when previous operating system was installed? To change the resolution, launch the System Settings application by going to the mintmenu, searching for “System Settings”, and ...

Re: Upgrading Desktop PC

Look at the refurbished computer market if on a limited budget. Last computer I built from enclosure up was in 2003 and that box lasted 10 years before I felt the need for something faster / newer.

Re: New Linux Mint KDE,Same old problem

You have a video card installed in your computer that also has Intel video installed on the motherboard? If that is the case, there should be a bios setting for which video to use. If that is the case, it could be an issue with bus priority within your computer. Have you ever run a Linux distro that...
