Re: Before installation everything worked fine but after not

Because AMD has this on/off thing with linux, I moved on to NVIDIA. AMD development on linux seems to have has come to an abrubt stop. At some point I read that AMD has hired more poeple to help with linux driver development, but I have yet to see anything updated. In order to use the amdgpu drivers...

Re: [SOLVED!]19.3 dual-boot install on Win 10 - weird boot problem

I'm glad you found the fix, and thank you for posting it for others. I'm not sure if it's limited to IBM devices as I had this issue on an older ASUS laptop on mint 15, and my last custom pc which was an ASUS mobo. But on my latest build, I booted to bios first and prioritized my boot drives. My gue...

Plymouth splash not showing when booting from nvme

So, I recently built a new rig. I used an m.2 nvme device to install Linux Mint 19.3 to. With everything I read, in order to boot from an nvme device, I had to install mint in efi mode. Not a problem. I successfully installed and booted with the m.2 device. No major issues. But, on my previous insta...

Re: Strange boot problem due to nVidia driber

I have ran in to a similar problem before. What worked for me was to boot into the live usb, mount the borked drive, and manually copy the data to a separate drive. Then you can simply reinstall mint, restore your data, reboot and make sure everything works. After stability has been verified, make a...

Re: The middle mouse button no longer unrolls the contextual menu

Hello, I'm testing Linux Mint 19 (beta) and Cinnamon (version 3.8.4) and I discover with fright that during a drag and drop, the middle mouse button (wheel button) no longer unrolls the contextual menu (which allowed to choose to copy / move / create a symbolic link ...).

Re: Conky freeze or GPU issue?

In my research to my conundrum, I invoked a horrible screen flicker as well. Luckily, I made a backup copy before I started messing with things and found a fix for the flicker by changing: double_buffer = false, to double_buffer = true, That worked entirely.. that setting was missing for me so I ty...

Re: Conky freeze or GPU issue?

So, another update... One of my friends suggested I should look in ~/.Xsession-errors to see if something is being reported around the time of the crash. Well, there are a bunch of errors, and I ended up getting side tracked on one about keyring (forgot what the error was). None-the-less, I had to i...

I have the same graphics card, or a very close version of it, and recently installed Conky myself. It blinks each time the data updates, which is irritating to me.

No worries...this is the conky.config section for mine which is blink free - it might help identify other possible causes.. conky.config = { own_window = true, own_window_class = 'Conky', own_window_type = 'desktop', own_window_transparent = false, own_window_argb_visual = true, own_window_argb_val...

[SOLVED] Conky freeze or GPU issue?

Since upgrading to mint 18.3, I have encountered several issues. But most have been easily resolved. One that I cannot seem to figure out though, is that after running for a bit, and sometimes not until I put my box under a heavy load, my conky seems to freeze. But if I run killall conky in terminal...
