Re: Installing Latest Nvidia Driver into Linux Mint 12

Thank you.

Is this in addition to installing the Nvidia drivers and or removing Nouveau?

Re: Installing Latest Nvidia Driver into Linux Mint 12

Is this procedure valid for use in Nadia x64?

I have a GeForce GT555m card in my Dell XPS L702x and upon installing Nadia the processor has begun to run hot.

Im assuming this is because the GPU is not being used and instead all graphics are being run through the CPU.

Re: Laptop running hot

Thanks for the reply :) After trawling this forum and another I have found the concensus of opinion is to install BumbleBee and purge the Nvidia drivers. Seems to be working well so far. The error message I posted above has disappeared and my machine seems to be running very nicely and without getti...

Re: Dell XPS 17 (L702x) - Maya - Webcam

I have now got a working camera. Unfortunately it appears that its not very good at sensing light and switches itself off / goes to black screen quite often.

Is there any setting I can adjust to alleviate this issue?

Thanks for the reply, apologies for the long post.


I have checked everything as you suggested and arrived at a blank screen in cheese too.

Its a Dell as you suggest, and both Cheese and Skype are reporting it as such.

Dell XPS 17 (L702x) - Maya - Webcam

I have recently purchased a Dell XPS 17 (L702x) laptop and installed Maya 64 Cinnamon.

Sadly the Maya is not finding the webcam.

Is there a quick and simple solution to this or am I destined to boot into Windows any time I wish to Skype?

Thank in advance :)

Re: How to get laptop fan to run more

I too am experiencing times when my laptop runs very hot.

I have a brand new Dell XPS.

It will run at a warm temp from startup but at times will begin to heat up to a temp that is almost too hot to stand for a long period.

I reboot when it happens but I do wonder why this should happen.

Re: Dell Studio 1535 - No Sound - Maya

Thanks for all the replies. I have gone ahead with all suggestions and still have no sound.

I think i am going to have to take the machine apart and check everything before deciding my next move. :)

Thank again

Hi All. Finally ditched MS. Hungry to learn

Hi all, So I finally grew a set and decided that I was sick of all the issues with Windows in all its forms. I am now running Mint 12 x64. In week since switching I have managed to customize my desktop a little bit, install Chrome and even convert my pst email file to eml and import it to Thunderbir...
