Envy no longer in repos? [Solved]

Postby col. panic » Wed Jun 30, 2010 5:36 am

Hello,

I'm back to Linux Mint after a long absence. I used to install my video drivers using Envy, but it is no longer in the repository. Is it coming back at some point? Is there another utility for installing ATI drivers? Envy is one of the reasons I came back to Mint.

Thanks,
Jim

Sorry, I forgot to add that I'm running Linux Mint 9 LXDE. :oops:

The Hardware Drivers (jockey) utility should now be used. Envy is outdated and unsupported.
