Re: Contrast, color saturation settings

Hi, I'm not using an intel gpu so take this with a grain of salt, but from what I've read the linux intel drivers do not yet support colour/contrast control. You are limited to changing the gamma. Your best bet at this stage is probably to play with the backlight settings (using xbacklight, or the b...

Re: error message when trying to instal wine and most things

What version/flavour of mint are you running?
Make sure you run that command as superuser ie:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --configure -a


If that doesn't work try:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get -f install


If that doesn't work please post the output of:

Code: Select all

dpkg --audit

Re: Disable CPU throttling

Glad you got it to work. This is just power throttling ok. In case you ever need to do this again, you can do this from linux by first installing cpufrequtils: sudo apt-get install cpufrequtils Then setting the performance governor: cpufreq-set -c 0 -g performance cpufreq-set -c 1 -g performance Thi...

Re: Disable CPU throttling

You know if you search for CPU throttling on these forums, you get a post from me which is about a day old, which is still on the first page of this forum about 5 or so posts below yours? That said it may or may not apply. Depends on your hardware. If you do follow any advice in that thread please h...

Re: can't hear my guitar playing

Hi Bart. This should be straightforward in principle, but you may have serious latency issues, depending on how you are set up. What are you using as sound out? Hopefully the UGM96... Anyway, you can enable sound passthrough in audacity by going to: Edit -> Preferences -> Recording And ticking "...

Did you at some stage add ubuntu repositories to your software sources?!

Try updating your lists...

Code: Select all

sudo rm -vf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
sudo apt-get update


Then see if libimobiledevice-utils will install:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice-utils

Re: No sound after installing nvidia 304.60 drivers

The errors aren't a big deal, there's not root directory is all I think.

Is this a laptop?
Can you change to 'built in audio: speakers/headphones' ?
Try the green 'set as fallback' tick.

Re: No sound after installing nvidia 304.60 drivers

Ok try installing pavucontrol:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install pavucontrol


Then run it.
See what your 'Output Devices' tab looks like.

If this doesn't work we can set it via commandline. But I'm hoping this will save the config.

Re: No sound after installing nvidia 304.60 drivers

And there is the problem, it is trying to play via hdmi. aplay -L said: Playback/recording through the PulseAudio sound server hence pulse. You can see it's using HDMI because of: * index: 0 name: <alsa_output.pci-0000_01_00.1.hdmi-stereo> driver: <module-alsa-card.c> flags: HARDWARE DECIBEL_VOLUME ...

Ok so it's definitely using pulseaudio. Ok next info splash!

EDIT: It might help if you try and have something playing while you run this.. ie a youtube vid.

Re: No sound after installing nvidia 304.60 drivers

Just out of interest, try it as superuser?
sudo ...

Also,
speaker-test -c 2
Both as root and as yourself.
