Home Theater Receiver Issue

I use the following line at startup: xrandr --output HDMI-0 --mode 1920x1080 --rate 60 This sets my display to a happy place. If I then change my receiver to another input, my display resets to 1080i. Any ideas on re-running a xrandr command when I switch inputs? Or maybe forcing Mint 18.1 to only h...

Maybe I can install the Cinnamon version and then grab a vanilla Mate so that I get that Gnome 2 look and feel back?

Mate vs. Cinnamon

Hi all, I was choosing between Mate and Cinnamon distros of Mint 13. I thought that Cinnamon looks a lot like the Win95 "start menu" and Mate looks, well, just like Gnome used to before it got all jacked up. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mate_Desktop_Ubuntu.png Well, I downloaded and installed t...
