Re: ATI Query

If your card is fairly new, then it may be supported by the ATI linux driver, see here for more details. The opensource Radeon driver (which it should use by default) or RadeonHD should be fine for watching movies but would maybe struggle with games. HTH

Re: Synaptic Replacement?

There is a way to re-enable the Mark all Upgrades button in synaptic in LM8 by editing a couple of files, but there's no guarantee they won't be overwritten by future updates. But as viking777 says, you can still use Ctrl/A

kage, does it show any soundcards in your Sound Preferences? If not have you installed any hardware drivers for an onboard modem?

Re: ATI Query

I have a ATI HD Radeon AGP graphics card, and when I run the Live CD all of the graphics are very slow and jerky. I can barely scroll down a webpage. If I do the full install and update the driver, will this problem go away? Hi bubba314, welcome to Mint. As you mention an AGP card, I'm assuming it'...

No pulseaudio volume control shows up during the test call. There is pulseaudio preferences in the control centre but no pulseaudio volume control there either Sorry, my bad. You need to run the PA volume control manually, it should be under Sound + Video in the menu but may be hidden. I meant the ...

Re: Totem BBC plugin can't connect to server

Thanks Husse, apparently it's an upstream bug, and like you say, other alternatives (iPlayer) are better anyway. Just thought I'd mention it.
