Re: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050

Well I installed and the sound works fine, so that's something! Few other issues but I'll see if I can sort those first before asking for help

Anyway, ran the latest Mint (cinnamon desktop) off the liveDVD, ...

I expect update pack 5 will be coming sooner rather than later now, as Linux Mint 13 XFCE and KDE are almost done.

Re: Strange Radeon 4850 issues

Got a new Geforce GTX550ti, the above is no issue with the Nvidia cards, so for me, problem solved.
However, the 12.6 AMD driver does fix the above issue if you have a compatible card...alas the 4850 only gets the 12.6 legacy driver..which STILL has the issue, in it's current beta state anyway.

Re: Strange Radeon 4850 issues

I should add, I have the same issue if I use the driver in the repositories too.

Strange Radeon 4850 issues

My Nvidia GTX 260 recently died, so I put my old Radeon 4850 in my PC instead (can't afford a new card) , which I haven't used since this PC ran windows :) It all works fine with the latest driver except one small annoying issue. When I load any 3D game, the frame rate is beyond slow..it's like 2 fp...

Re: My PC Hangs for no reason!

This may seem a daft question...
Are you using LightDM as the login manager or the default MDM? I ask because I was having similar issues, and I'd switched to using LightDM as soon as I installed mint. On a whim I switched back to MDM the other day and have been crash free since.

Re: Gimp 2.8 / Babl / Gegl - Easy install script.

Well .. ./configure etc all goes okay. make works fine.. but it won't install .. In the end I tried with your script from scratch..same issue but no error message as piped to /dev/null Tried again after a fresh download in case it was corrupt somehow...same again. It all appears to go okay until thi...

Re: Gimp 2.8 / Babl / Gegl - Easy install script.

I didn't use your script as is, but I did use it to find exactly what dependencies I needed. I guess I had been missing one before as I couldn't get gegl to compile previously. It would get past ./configure but fail on make Luckily it works now and gimp 2.8 is happily compiling as I type, will let y...

If you wish to compile it yourself, then I used the following version https://launchpad.net/unity-greeter/0.1/0.1.1/+download/unity-greeter-0.1.1.tar.gz I had to install a few development libs, but it'll soon tell you which ones when you do ./configure ./configure --PREFIX=/usr --SYSCONFDIR=/etc on...

Re: LightDM in LMDE 201204

Here is the checkinstall package I made, though I again stress that you use at your own risk. It should just get any dependencies it needs from the repositories, I don't think I have any other non-standard packages, but you'll soon know if it refuses to install due to unsatisfiable dependencies. Oh,...

Re: LightDM in LMDE 201204

I downloaded the source from an earlier version on launchpad, and compiled it, then used checkinstall to make a deb package. I wanted to use a later version for the dynamic background switching etc, but to do that would have required either compiling loads of updated stuff, or perhaps switching to t...

Re: LightDM in LMDE 201204

Agreed, I had no issues installing and running LightDM, aside from the hideous default theme :)
Had a fun morning today getting a version of unity greeter working with it. It's the only bit of Unity I like and a nice look for a login screen.
