Re: Driver Manager not working 18.3 Mate

Solved!

Marziano, you got me on the right track.

I used the edit menu context command, and clicked on Administration. There was a revert to original option on the Driver Manager context menu and I chose that.

Driver Manager working perfectly now.

Thanks to all who helped. :D

Re: Driver Manager not working 18.3 Mate

Driver Manager still not working from Control Center.

Any more advice before I format the Mint partitions and start again?

Thanks.

Try: sudo apt-get install python3-gi python3-aptdaemon python3-aptdaemon.gtk3widgets ubuntu-drivers-common gir1.2-xapp-1.0
This will make sure that all reverse dependencies are installed.
Nada.
Does Driver Manager open with gksudo driver-manager
Yes!!

Re: Driver Manager not working 18.3 Mate

Thanks.

I ran that as sudo and it showed install routine as superuser.
None of these did the job - I ran them all again, re-booting each time.

If still nada, check here.
The last post in that thread mentioned re-install of 'python3-pyqt5'.
If this is a good idea, please post sudo command.

Re: Driver Manager not working 18.3 Mate

Thanks. Sadly, none of these worked. I re-booted each time. When each command was entered, there was a password popup, and each time, this was accepted and the command was executed. With /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintdrivers/mintdrivers.py there was a download. The popup window at the end had a title: Driv...

[SOLVED] Driver Manager not working 18.3 Mate

Nothing happens when I try to open Driver Manager.

Software Manager, Software Sources, Synaptic Package Manager all working.

I'd be grateful for advice. Thanks.

Re: Delete Linux_start again

Many thanks. I read some articles on folder structure in Linux and understand a bit better how these work. I will read more. I updated to kernel 4.13x (the reason I did not before was that as a beginner I thought best to be cautious - level 4). The Driver Manager doesn't open for some reason, even a...

Delete Linux_start again

This was my first install of a Linux distro (Mint 18.3, Mate). It hasn't gone well. Updates up to level 3 werre installed. Nvidia 390.25 driver for GTX 1070 Ti was installed using the software manager. It seems that I managed to install Mint in the /root directory. I know because folder permissions ...

Re: MATE 18.3 Desktop Freeze

Guys, thanks but most of this is waaay over my head too. I have the 64-bit 390.25 drivers running in Mate 18.3. I have three separate screens. I can drag stuff around from screen to screen no problem. (Incidentally, the screens are wired through a KVM switch with a Windows 7 PC). Firefox runs ok so ...

Re: MATE 18.3 Desktop Freeze

The 3rd party program is DisplayFusion.

I checked with https://alternativeto.net/

There are lots of alternatives for Windows, but none I could find for Linux.

Might have to think laterally and create a .jpg which opens with a hotkey on the main display, post boot. Or something like that..

Re: MATE 18.3 Desktop Freeze

Everything seems to be fine so far. I even managed to install an Nvidia driver for my GTX 1070 Ti. Next thing is to arrange for my 3 monitors to have 3 separate backgrounds. The two side screens can be solid black, with a picture background in the centre screen. I can do this in Windows 10 but it re...

Re: MATE 18.3 Desktop Freeze

Thanks. I know what you mean. I managed to 'unlock' the desktop by re-booting and going into restore mode. I had to do this several times before I got a low res desktop (safe mode-style) which I could work with. First, I updated everything which seemed relevant. Second, I found that the screensaver ...

MATE 18.3 Desktop Freeze

First post, thanks for having me on these boards. New Linux user. Running 18.3 MATE 64-bit. Dual boot with W10 x64. I am not running VB. Yesterday I configured triple screens using the generic graphics driver (Nvidia card GTX1070 Ti). This was easily done. The OS appeared to be running perfectly and...
