Create a flash or DVD of the windwoes .iso and boot from it. Then follow the bouncing ball.

Re: nvidia-driver-435 or xserver-xorg-video-nouveau?

Next year, a massive 5 days away, I might upgrade my camera to 4K. Editing 4K will probably push my GPU and make use of the nvidia driver. It'll push your CPU hard as well. I run an Intel i9 9900K with nVidia RTX 2080 and transcoding just 1080p, let alone 4k, pushes it hard. Mind you, it does it qu...

Re: nvidia-driver-435 or xserver-xorg-video-nouveau?

On one of my computers, the Update Manager check thingy, System Reports, recommended replacing driver xserver-xorg-video-nouveau with nvidia-driver-435. nvidia-driver-435 is a meta package with unknown content. Using the funny System Reports update, instead of a regular Update Manager or the comman...

Re: Screen Tearing Problem

I think the screen tearing issue can be fixed... @roblm is the forum's premiere but unsung nVidia guru, and I have enough knowledge of nVidia to tell you that you're flogging a long-dead horse. There are two essential ways to rectify tearing. One is to have a fast and powerful video card that doesn...

Hello,

I have a Dell Laptop, that I've installed Linux Mint Cinnamon on. I keep getting "tearing" in the taskbar. You can see "pixels moving"? Any cure for this?

Hello all.
Is there an easy way to search inside files from the desktop manager instead of grepping from the command line?
Thank you.
Install catfish. Nemo is useless at searching.

So you have nothing of substance to say on topic and only resort to personal insults?
I referred to what you wrote, not to you, and your spray doesn't warrant a substantive reply.

Re: unable to access or boot new ssd after cloning using clonezilla

is this something we can fix so i can boot the laptop with new SSD? This is going to require a lot of command-line-fu to fix. You have two choices. The easiest will be to clean install to the SSD then copy over your home directory contents from the HDD, making sure to include hidden files, followed...
