Pour plus d’espace j’ai tout simplement enlevé la liste des application, tout se fait avec l’alt-tab(ou via l’applet scale)
On the way to switch to full Linux (Mint 17/Cinnamon), still some detail to iron out, tho’. First of all, the Windows 7 installation went AWOL… and even if I’m not really keen in using it I need it for tests.
Everything else went smooth, even if I know the scanner will me give something to sweat over — I have the only one model not automatically recognized by SANE, umphf — hoping the proprietary drivers won’t grieve me too much. I chose Cinnamon because I found the tablet configuration tools are the most straightforward and efficient.
And finally I can use Krita with some proper hardware behind it, heh. The above is a quick ink of a pencil sketch. I really need to get a grip on the various brushes…
A couple of people were asking for the reference I used for Mint and the other distros. Here it is, I’m not sure who made it though…
This weekend I am drinking lots of soda and eating frozen Trader Joe’s food and trying to learn web development stuff.
Look how pretty Linux Mint is though, mmmm yeah dat clean aesthetic
In this video i show my triple monitor gaming setup running Linux Mint and Quake III. I use some older hardware from 2006!
Intel Q6600 cpu @3ghz 8gb ddr2
Asus P5WDG2 ws Professional
Cooler Master ATC201 Corsair HX520
Asus Geforce 8600gts 256mb
Point of View Geforce 8600gts 256mb
OCZ Vertex2 120gb ssd
3x IIyama Prolite E1900S 1280x1024
Quake III Arena
A basic guideline what i have done to make this setup work on the software side. If you have mouse problems reconnect your monitors from left to right 05:26

So I tried the multisystem thing, USB pen drive, using latest 64bit cinnamon *v2.ISO and it seems to work. Selected the recommended Nvidia driver, and a wireless driver (had to use tethering via android to get the internets). So thats new! I don’t know why it works now. Thanks for the advice, in the past attempts I never saw the login screen! Though I can not adjust brightness (nothing happens, always full brightness), I’ll figure that out later. This is great progress :)
Again thanks for the responses!
I think i’ll go with the live USB stuff, done it before, even with other Distros. Then I’ll see what I’ll do from there. Yes i did notice a “*v2.iso” in them, so thats new. I’ll read the release note as well :) In the fast few months I did test latest Fedora (it worked for the most part, but some issues after update), Ubuntu (which i’m using), OpenSUSE (never got it to install), and Mint around the time it came out (No success -I did quite some digging, but I felt that it was way out of my level to find a solution). When I bought this laptop I thought yeah, some good hardware, more RAM, good processor, etc - boy I was wrong…
will let you know what I do and if it works! thanks a bunch! :)
answering to the linuxmint message:
You are welcome! Please remember to read the release notes of each Linux Mint edition and download the latest ISO with your preferred desktop: Cinnamon, KDE, MATE or Xfce. For Cinnamon and MATE there are new ISOs labeled v2 with some important bug fixes.
I would like to suggest another solution that does not involve (re)formatting your hard-drive.
With a large and fast USB stick or an external hard-drive you may create a LiveUSB using a tool like the LinuxLive USB Creator (from Windows) or the MultiSystem software (the app or the a stand-alone Live distro burned on a DVD as a bootable OS).
You can use these tools to create a bootable Linux Mint with persistence, so you can use it without installing on your hard-drive because all the updates and files can be saved inside a file stored on your USB device (max. 4 GB can be used by default for the persistence file, but the Casper partition can be increased using GParted).
Then you may boot your Linux Mint edition of choice from your USB device with persistence enabled and see if it works with your Nvidia graphics and install another driver for your graphics card if needed.
