Re: Laptop Wifi not showing up in LM17 Cinnamon on my Dell D

For giggles and grins try rmmod wl. Mintdrivers could have installed the WL driver, which may not work with the 4311 broadcom card. If that works you'll just need to remove the wl driver.

Re: Compaq nx6310 Laptop Bluetooth Quesion

I might have this solved. I tested on another similar laptop, also a compaq nx6310. When i first installed linux mint on them I noticed a problem with the wifi being blocked. It wasn't a switch, but I kept getting an error message about some kind of hard block. With a little research I determined th...

Re: Compaq nx6310 Laptop Bluetooth Quesion

Is the bluetooth built into the wifi card? This is my first time having a machine with bluetooth so it's all new to me. Wifi is recognized with 17, without having to install proprietary drivers. I'm not at the machine right now so give me a little bit to go check and see what kind of wireless card I...

Compaq nx6310 Laptop Bluetooth Quesion

I have a compaq nx6310 laptop and the bluetooth only works with mint 13 (does not appear to be proprietary hardware). I doesn't work with mint 17. It seems to be a driver in the kernel, but I'm not sure how to determine which driver I need and how to get it working with mint 17. Does anyone have any...

Re: Mint 16, Broadcom, No Wireless (or wired) After Install!

I have a dell 1545 as well and installing the wireless driver is very easy. You'll need an internet connection somehow (an ethernet cable plugged into a router for example). Click on the menu and search for drivers and open driver manager. Once that opens it's easy to install the driver, just select...

Re: How to install the Nvidia proprietary drivers in LinuxMi

Usually I don't have a problem installing the proprietary drivers. I know it's an issue with the 3.10 kernels & later as I've had this issue with other distros. As long as mint 13 keeps working I'll be happy! :D

Re: How to install the Nvidia proprietary drivers in LinuxMi

I have an HP tower that has the NVIDIA 6150 SE graphics card. When I tried running linix mint 15 from usb my screen kept going all wonky (as soon as the desktop would load) and I would not have enough time to install the proprietary driver. I currently have linux mint 13 installed and have no proble...

Re: Dell 1525 wireless driver not working after LMDE update

The 4312 works best with the broadcom-sta drivers. I know that with the 3.10 kernal a patch was needed to get the driver to compile on gentoo & slackware. Broadcom also released a new version of their drivers. http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php It looks like there's a bug report fi...

Linux mint 13 medibuntu

I read an article saying that medibuntu is no longer being maintained. When I check for updates on linux mint 13 I get an error for the medibuntu respoitory. Will there be an updated repository for linux mint 13?

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

I like the cinnamon desktop, but am using KDE 4.9.0 right now. I'll probably try and stay with this for a while.

Re: Linux Mint 13 KDE released!

Mint 13 KDE is very nice, stable, works excellent out of the box. The only issue I noticed was when I clicked on additional drivers and tried to install the broadcom-sta driver it hung up on downloading it. I was able to go into synaptic and download the drivers I needed and then when I clicked on a...
