Linux Mint 18.2 (MATE) and 4k monitor

Hi, I have gone through a number of threads and most of the answers pertain to Cinnamon. Is there anyway get to 4K scaling working with MATE? I did go into appearance and change the font dpi from 96 to 144 and fonts are ok now. But most of the apps are all still tiny - steam for example is just terr...

[SOLVED]Re: Installing linux mint 11

VINCENT !! You wizard ! I guess the boot-repair did it !!! I did both the recommended repair and the install to sda (really did not know which worked but got another URL http://paste.ubuntu.com/745379) All in all - I restarted, saw the GRUB and now it is working like a peach. Awesome !! Thanks a ton...

Re: Installing linux mint 11

Vincent,
I finally got it up and running, I did the recommended repair and it is taking forever :(
Now what exactly should I do with the advanced options?
Should I just do the place GRUB into sda or should I do a reinstall GRUB? It is quite intimidating - the advanced options I mean :(

Re: Installing linux mint 11

One other thing (I am still trying to get my session up, it hung and I restarted!!).
While installation I kept my internet turned off, I dont know if this could have screwed up the install in some way :(

Re: Installing linux mint 11

I see both a 80 GB Hard Disk File System and File System Icons? Is that correct? (I guess the File System Icon is that of the live CD right?) Upon opening the 80GB thingie icon, I see bin, boot etc. Looks like a good install as far and as little as I know. Under home I see my name's folder, I explor...

Re: Installing linux mint 11

I tried another thing. Fired up again with my live CD and this time in the Linux mint options I chose "Boot from local disk" - still the blank blinking cursor :(

Is there something I can do to get in via the live CD and change something?

Re: Installing linux mint 11

Vincent, I went with only defaults - I did not change anything at all, just keep looking at it to see if something fails. Now I tried to edit the grub parameters but no luck. I get the HP invent splash (with the Press ESC to enter BIOS etc) and from then on I kept the SHIFT key pressed but the damn ...

Re: Installing linux mint 11

Vincent, You would probably beat me now but I am now stuck with a new problem. I redownloaded and reburnt the ISO on my XP machine and this time the live CD worked and guess what, I installed LM 11. And then the good news ended. After installing, when I powered on it is stuck with a blinking cursor ...
