Re: Google Earth MX-18 not rendering [Solved]

Just to confirm that GE works fine once I inserted the videocard, which arrived quite promptly all said. I did need to get a digital to VGA adapter, not having a spare cable around to substitute, but all up achieved for the price of half a dozen coffees. :happy: Edit: for reference: $ inxi -G Graphi...

Re: What's the difference between "Synaptic Package Manager" and "MX Package Manager"

MX PI is the go to for common applications, some of which can be fiddly to to select and add correctly in Synaptic for less experienced or newer users (eg. Google Earth, Wine or Virtual Box), making MX friendlier to set up in the first instance. After using MX PI, you may find a few items you person...

Re: Google Earth MX-18 not rendering

It's a known issue that GE 7.2 and above shows the symptoms you describe with the "intel" driver you're using. Since I don't think your hardware supports the "modesetting" driver, the only solution is to find a 7.1.X version of GE or GE Pro out on the web someplace--like in this thread: https://pro...

Google Earth MX-18 not rendering [Solved]

I have a feeling Google Earth has been updated quite recently and exceeded my graphics hardware limitations, or is at least not communicating with my MX-17-18 Upgraded install. Google Earth (GE) lately opens looking like a badly drawn Wine application, menus looking indistinct and font faces washed ...

Re: It's been really cold lately...

Do you mean 50C? Tomorrow is around 40C (104F), total fire ban with a couple of bushfires going in the SE of Victoria while Tasmania, if not quite so hot, has 40-50 fires raging, some in World Heritage areas of sub-alpine and rare vegetation, causing untold havoc and long term concern for many threa...

Re: {SOLVED} GRUB Customizer.

I wonder if this explains why the background image for grub did not appear to change: (From my past notes...and I typically use an image located in user/images without problems) Having selected a new grub background image....

Downunder Seasons Greetings forecast

Best wishes to all, 33C expected locally for the 24-25th, which is I gather, in the vicinity of 91F for the imperially minded. This of course means high fire risk, total fire bans likely in many areas, much swimming or air conditioning for sensitive types if lucky, the potential to fry an egg on ste...

If that than works and has the desired results you can as a next step have thos entries on top of the curent me...
