Re: Which GPU to pick for Linux Mint?

I think this happens because you don't yet have the driver installed - you should be able to work around it by booting with nomodeset (hold shift to see Grub bootloader, then press e to edit and add nomodeset at the end of the next-to-last line).

Re: Which GPU to pick for Linux Mint?

I have the 550Ti and I cannot get it to work. I get a bunch of error messages or blank screens or both. I might be doing something wrong though. I'm not sure. for now I'm using the integrated graphics from the i7-2600 until I figure it out.

Re: Mint12 "/usr/lib/cups/backend/cups-pdf failed"

i am not sure if this will help or not, but it helped me when i was setting up my epson priner. I installed a package called mtink. In the software manager, type in mtink and download and install it. I think its only for epson printers.
