Re: Linux mint 18.1 freezing

I'm having some freezing problems also. It happens within 10 minutes after boot. I have to hit the reset button and once it re-boots it won't freeze again the rest of the day.
What is this command supposed to do?

Code: Select all

sudo du -x -d1 -h /

Re: Linux Mint 13

Re: Record emulator gameplay?

Installed it, however when recording the game, the screen "flickers". Not completely, but parts of the screen go black for like a split second, and it happens all the time, so not really good. Tried doing tweaks in video settings, nothing seemed to work. Everything is fine on normal screen, but as ...

Re: Record emulator gameplay?

OBS has worked well for me

When using OBS with an nVidia card you need to go to the nVidia settings and uncheck "Allow Flipping" under OpenGl Settings otherwise you will have glitches in the recording.

Re: Star Trek TOS awesome fan production...

I've been watching episodes lately of Star Trek Continues, which is a fan production of Star Trek The Original Series. They've done, in my opinion, a wonderful job so far, with production values and acting performances that should impress a lot of people out there. Vic Mignogna, who plays Kirk, I t...

My favorite is Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Runs perfectly on Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon natively. Also Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is fun

I got past the start a free trial screen by clicking on login and after I logged in I had access to the site.

When you go to http://www.hulu.com it seems to redirect you too http://www.hulu.com/welcome the welcome screen is the problem. If you can get to http://www.hulu.com you are in.
