Re: Mint 13 freezes all the time

Hello, solar1951. No, no, nothing is for the bin in this case. Somehow it seems to have slipped my attention that your machine has got two graphics cards, an onboard card and the NVidia card. Currently this still is a tricky situation for Linux Mint / Ubuntu. Often the solution, maybe just workarou...

Re: Mint 13 freezes all the time

Have now un-plugged Nvidia card and re-installed Mint 13 using the on board graphics. Seems OK for now will run for a couple of days and if OK still will mark this as "solved". Something else for the bin !

Re: Mint 13 freezes all the time

Thanks Karl for your time. I have many times looked at other threads on this card and apart from recommending rolling back to another driver in the case of "falling off bus" as previously happened on my old rig, nothing about this type of issue. But I will have another look. How would I go...

SOLVED Mint 13 freezes all the time

Have just upgraded to a new dual core pentium and Gigabyte MB with an existing Nvidia 8400 graphics card. Clean install of Mint 13 with cinnamon. The screen is a LCD 1920x1080. Sometimes the windows get "scrambled" and are unreadable and sometimes the system freezes completely - no keyboar...

Re: Mint 13 with Gnome 3

There is an Ubuntu 12.04 remix with Gnome shell which may get you close to what you want.

Re: New workspaces no longer spawned

Went back to standard theme and "expo" mode - no button.
Why change something that worked well and try and complicate things ?
This does not work for me.
Edit:- Sorry works now, hadn't restarted cinnamon, but still seems a backward step to me

Re: New workspaces no longer spawned

The same happened to me after the upgrade to Cinnamon 1.4. I plan to downgrade to 1.3 series as this is a poor move.

Re: gnome 3.2

I have seen Clems statement that Mint 12 will have a fallback to Gnome 2 if gnome 3 doesn't run on your box, but I would like to try Gnome3 especially as Gnome 2 will not be under future development. Does anybody know if my graphics card will support Gnome 3 and gnome shell ? Its a Nvidia Geforce 6200

Re: What is your favorite car?

The "old style" Mini - not BMW
Had one for a few years with my wife in South Wales - you could sling it round any corner and cheap as chips to run. Was great in snow too until too much built up under the sump and the front wheels would lift - just dig out under the sump and away to go again.
