Re: How can I extend the session for specific websites in Chrome?

Well, it fulfills your first request. You could have added the extra information to save wasting time. You might have to do some searching in the chrome store. Perhaps something like Session Buddy might do what you want.

Yes. As I said, you'll need to go back to Mint 17.3 to get a system with appropriate proprietary drivers.

What am I doing wrong?

Nothing. You're using nvidia prime, which is used to support hybrid Intel and nvidia GPUs. That would explain why you don't get the tab. You'll have to wait for someone with experience in that setup. Sorry, I can't help you further.

Re: No HDMI and no 3rd party video drivers.

Oh, you have a 5730. AMD has dropped linux support for that card. The drivers are available only for Mint 17.3, IIRC. Any linux distro that uses x.org > 1.15 must use the open-source drivers, which is what you have now.

Did you look in the menu and type driver to find the driver manager?

Select your GPU and monitor in the left panel. There is a colour correction tab in the right panel.

If 5.3 is in the repos, uninstall it. You can remove the later version and reinstall 5.3 later if you wish.

catweazel should also check the "Login Window" and click the "Users" tab. He should make sure "Allow guest sessions" is off. I don't need to check anything because I'm not the one asking for a solution. The OP stated a password was required when the machine is switched...

You don't say if you're using a laptop or an external monitor. If the latter, you can use the montor's settings to make everything green.

Go into the machine's BIOS and see if it accepts a BIOS password.
