Hello all,

I am a new Linux mint user. I am enjoying the system a good deal, however I have a question to any one who can help.
I waste a lot of my spare time gaming, I use a few sites I have been using for years (Microsoft days), since my transition from the dark side I cant use any of my direction keys or keypad during games. Any clues??? All help will be greatly received.

Many thanks

Firstly, welcome to Mint.

As for your problems, could you be a little more specific; like what sort of games you're playing, what version of Mint are you using, etc.?
