Re: Cinnamon 15: qt or gtk?

Just one note: You are using an unsupported version of Mint. This means you are affected by problems like the Heartbleed Bug.

As for GTK vs QT, I would recommend GTK just because Cinnamon is GTK based.

Re: Understanding the output of inxi-Gx

The reason it's crashing is that the fglrx package is trying to exclusively use the AMD card, but card because it's the second card.

You need the fglrx-pxpress package if you want to use proprietary drivers and the AMD card.

The other solution is to use vga_switcheroo.

Re: MDM login manager won't change to 24 hour clock

Some themes require you to manually edit the theme itself if you want the 24 hour clock. The Elemintary HTML5 theme for MDM requires you to do this.

The linux kernel is huge now, with millions lines of code inside it. But the kernel is getting to big for it's own good. So why is this occuring. Does it have something to do with the monolithic design? (now with loadable kernel modules) Thanks, These days, it's mostly modules. The reason you hear ...

Re: Plank in Official Repos

It's not as simple as plonking Plank in the official Mint or Ubuntu repositories and saying that it's done. If I'm not mistaken, development of Plank is led by the elementaryOS developers, which means that agreements have to be made with them about distribution, licensing and what not before you can...

Re: Installing Cinnamon, Mate, and Xfce concurrently

Install MATE first and then install the cinnamon package. After that, you can configure Cinnamon to run with mate-terminal, pluma and what not.

Re: Control Nvidia GPU Voltage in LM16 with a utility

Go to Xedgers and install the nVIdia 337 driver. Then you can overclock your GPU if your GPU supports over-clocking.

Re: How do I install ATI graphics driver?

I can't figure out how to install an ATI graphics driver. I've searched on Google for tutorials but none of them worked, and some of them messed up the graphics all together. My graphics card is ATI Mobility Radon x1400. In addition, that card has not been supported by the proprietary drivers for y...

Re: Deleted Windows 7 Loader

Ok, Windows won't install on anything but the primary hard drive, hence why you couldn't do that. As for your first hard disk, I think you actually need to download a Windows 7 recovery disk that matches your version of Windows 7 (they're no bigger than 350MB) and run that (because I suspect you've ...
