Ya after that the instructions said to go to Driver Manager and install a Nvidia driver.

I reinstalled Mint again to get the operating systems to show in Grub but I don't like what this did. The Mint installation modified my Windows 8 hard drive to put some boot files there because if I have the Windows 8 drive disconnected Mint will not start.
Code: [Select]
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates -y
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa -y
$ sudo apt-get update
I had to type the above commands to get my GTX750TI video card working. Can someone tell me what these do that the default Mint 17.1 couldn’t?

I'm not ignoring your suggestion. I am just waiting to set aside some time to work on this. Thanks

General Chat / New problem (3TB ext drive and new enclosure)
« on: January 10, 2015, 05:54:02 PM »
So I have a WD external drive (3TB) It appeared that it died but luckily it was the enclosure electronics that died as the drive shows fine connected to a pc directly. The problem I have is that now I have a new enclosure and Win7 wants me to initialize the disk before I can use it. Both enclosures are USB3. Last time I did this long time ago with another drive it got wiped. So my question is this. Why the F I can't just swap enclosures and have the drive work normally? I have over 2TB on there and don't really want to lose all that. Is it because I am using the GUID partition type on the drive? Like I said windows is able to see the drive contents when directly connected to motherboard. I also am sure the new enclosure works as I put a 2 TB drive in and also had to initialize and the drive worked after initialization. But I don't want to initialize a a drive with over 2TB on it. I know I can copy from on to the other and then initialize and copy back but there has to be a easier way.

Ok, I got Mint 17.1 Rebecca installed and its fine but I have a question. My Ubuntu used to show my other OSes in the boot menu that shows before the rest loads. How Can I get them to show again?

What is a nice Linux distro now days? I'm totally willing to install fresh to fix this. What can you recommend that is easy to use and doent require much command line work to get it working. Also would be nice if it had all the needed software already in there like flash, media codecs and stuff. I would like to try something other than Ubuntu.

General Chat / Re: How much do you walk in a day?
« on: December 30, 2014, 12:23:11 PM »
I have a pedometer and I entered in my weight and height and it says that I walk about 3.5 miles from the time i leave for work to when i get back home. I keep it in my pocket as I can't have anything showing on the outside of my uniform except the standard issue stuff. 3.5 miles is the average I been seeing and sometimes its less and sometimes more. I take the car to work but then I stand and sit all day but mostly stand except for breaks/lunch and copule other times where I sit.

Mobile Devices / Re: BlueStacks Android emulator for windows.
« on: November 28, 2014, 01:53:21 AM »
If you did get it on TPB, you really didn't need to. Pretty popular, and the performance is decent. I just don't care enough about android to run an emulator, haha.

http://www.bluestacks.com/

I downloaded the one directly from the site and its a bit different. It has bloatware and you need to tinker around to get rid of the bloat a bit. Also the bluestacks.com version takes longer to install as it downloads some files as its installing and then does a "android is upgrading" for a little bit too. Also the site version does not have a superuser app but appears to be rooted as I tried 2 root checker apps and both said its rooted but I didn't get any message about allowing them root access so I don't know if it really is or not. The version I got is just simple to install and comes with some needed apps built in.
I will try the genymotion and see how it works. I just want to use it for some apps that are not available on windows and some that are just too huge on windows. Ever since I got the first smartphone in the last days of 2013 I been enjoying the small and useful apps that google play has to offer.

Mobile Devices / BlueStacks Android emulator for windows.
« on: November 25, 2014, 01:11:00 PM »
I got this program a while back and I honestly don't remember from where but probably piratebay. Anyway I can share the install file on dropbox if anyone wants it. Its pretty cool and a good way to use android on windows. It is running Android 4.4.2. It supports most apps except the ones that need gps or the accelerometer or other similar sensors. Installing APKs is as simple as double clicking them from your windows folders. It comes pre-rooted and even has titanium backup pro and a few other pro apps.  Here is some screenshots.

Tv channels... hmm well ok but seriously tho share some of those "tv channels" because chances are they are the ones without all the chemicals and Rubbermaid crap that fills "tv channels" now XD

Pinako if size matters than if I made a cheap touchscreen would that mean I'd have a nerdgasm?

I would like to get it working to stream free tv channels and my buddy with the same exact Nexus 7 tablet wants to watch live soccer games on some sites that stream flash. Porn is better on big screen so i will not watch it on the 7 inch Nexus LOL.

It seems that flash player is no longer supported on Android. I need flash to watch flash streaming videos on some sites and can't get t to work. I went to Adobe and got the latest available one (11.1) and it installed it manually but chrome and websites do not see it installed and even went to a Adobe flash test page and does not work. Anyone knows how to install it on 4.4.4 and have it actually work?

Is it worth giving them my credit card # for a 25$ media player?

I dont remember exactly when this happened but a while back Microsoft was giving away Media Center Pro edition of windows 8 and the weird thing was that it let you install it on a volume license key which is the most common way of installing any windows version. But what makes this cool is that after the Media center add on is installed it gives you a legal and unique key so next time I need to reinstall I just use that key and the Media Center Pro version of Windows 8 installs. there was a promo for a limited time so I jumped on it.
