If you are using the Nvidia proprietary driver then nvdia-settings should be the GUI tool to configure the Xorg.conf file. It should have its own package in Linux Mint, so installing would be as simple as: sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings This should put an icon in your menu somewhere, you can run it from there (though I'm not sure how you get it to ...

I'm sure there's a better way, I think this is all handled by udev now but if you know that those commands will solve it, you could always just make them into a script: #!/usr/bin/env bash cvt 1600 1200 xrandr --newmode "1600x1200_60.00" 161.00 1600 1712 1880 2160 1200 1203 1207 1245 -hsync +vsync xrandr --addmode VGA-1 1600x1200_60.00 Make it ...

In short, Linux Mint does uses exactly the same base as Ubuntu. In fact, if you check the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list, you will see that Mint uses the Ubuntu archives for most of its software. Most likely you have made an error in installing the software. Particularly when you say that you 'downloaded' the software, it implies that you didn't use ...

This Forum Post may help. I recently bought a new laptop with the new UEFI disklayout, and soon realized that the EFI boot tools that are usable in Windows7/8 are not up too par with even the Basic grub2. It's much easier to: Use your recovery media to boot into Windows. Repair your EFI partition, using a method like so. Install a Recent version of a ...

I cant leave comments yet, but is the screen connected via VGA, DVI. HDMI (Type B). The problem may be elsewhere but if you have different display ports and have a different cable connect the screen just to check. Try lowering the resolution, do you get any Ghosting? Try Recommendations for your screen Model from Dell

Take a look at this Ubuntu Community Howto titled: AptGet/Howto, specifically this section, Setting up apt-get to use a http-proxy. You typically set this environment variable like so: $ export http_proxy=http://yourproxyaddress:proxyport You can get the value for your proxy out of your browser if you don't know it already, since it's apparently working ...

Linux Mint is not meant to be updated over release boundaries. The suggested approach is killing your old installation by re-installing. I know this is a rather unsatisfying answer, but it's the way it's meant to be from upstream. Trying to do a "rolling" update ia is essence possible but might break in an unpredictable and thus horrible way and when trying ...

Given your description of the issue it sounds like some sort of problem where the mouse is being perceived by the receiver/driver stack on the system as though it has lost (or is losing) power and so it is being disconnected. Searching for this issue I did come across this Ubuntu issue which I think might be at play here as well. There were several ...

The issue here is the first entry of the df output: /cow 4062908 3323888 529308 87% / That states that your root partition, the one which is the parent folder of everything else, you can think of it as your C: drive, is almost full (87%). The other lines describe separate partitions (think of them as D: drives) and whether or not they are ...

Solution 1: Run dmesg and watch out for ttyUSB* lines if your modem interface is a classical emulated serial interface. Solution 2: Browse /sys/bus/usb/devices/X-1:Y:*/ until you find useful information. Based on your line Bus 003 Device 013: ID 0421:0007 Nokia Mobile Phones, i would guess X=3 and Y= 12 (13 minus one). Solution 3: Run udevadm monitor as ...

Mikserv's suggestion that the issue here is the driver makes sense. As he points out, you have hybrid graphics and that doesn't work too well under Linux. So, try the following: Install the kernel headers and the nvidia DKMS module sudo aptitude -r install linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-xconfig ...

While I doubt very seriously you'll find anything that is written in pure HTML (I can't imagine how that would even work), there is Jolidrive. You will need a browser to use it, of course. If you want the desktop to be the browser, you might want to look into compiling and building yourself ChromiumOS. I think there are some sites that offer built-for-you ...
