Re: [SOLVED] MSI GTO60 Laptop w K2000m No External Display Nvidia 390xx drivers

Eric, Linux, in my experience, is amazingly different from distro to distro. ArcoLinux can see my external monitor without additional configuration, most other distros can not. Setting up file sharing on a local network is a 2-minute job with ArcoLinux, impossible with "some" other distros. ArcoLinu...

Re: [SOLVED] MSI GTO60 Laptop w K2000m No External Display Nvidia 390xx drivers

Thanks Eric,
Later on tonight (still morning in Canada) I will blog about ArcoLinux, mentioning the advantages such as speed, ease of network setup and things like that.
It's amazing how fragmented Linux is. Every distro has something but Arco has it all. :)

Re: [CLOSED] MSI GTO60 Laptop w K2000m No External Display Nvidia 390xx drivers

Installing the non-Lts version of ArcoLinux worked perfectly.
I have my external display up and running. Everything is 100% :)

Re: [OPEN] MSI GTO60 Laptop w K2000m No External Display Nvidia 390xx drivers

I "think" that I know what's wrong/different. I downloaded the LTS iso because my newish Dell workstation has troubles installing the regular release. For some reason, the LTS version made it onto the laptop so my kernel version is 4.19 instead of 5.x something. I'll reinstall and see if this can be...

[SOLVED] MSI GTO60 Laptop w K2000m No External Display Nvidia 390xx drivers

Hi, I used to run Nvidia 418xx drivers on my older MSI laptop which has a K2000m GFX card. The other day, I installed the 390xx driver (New ArcoLinux install) and lost the external monitor. Without the Nvidia driver, I don't have a usable webcam frame rate and most importantly, Blender 3D is not per...

Re: [SOLVED] Timeshift is not creating automated backups. Cron?

Sorry it took me so long to see this but there is an easy fix (in the comments for Timeshift on the AUR website): Voila! Timeshift will be active right away. I had this issue on Antergos Linux before and then when I installed Arcolinux, so I think it's an Arch thing. Thank you Allan, I can't tell y...

Re: [OPEN] Timeshift is not creating automated backups. Cron?

Fast forward 4 months ... still no Timeshift.

Without it, I can't continue on ArcoLinux. The other day, I installed the 390xx nvidia driver which "used to work before" and my external display stopped working. A lot of time lost because I forgot to do a manual Timeshift backup.

Re: [SOLVED] xsetwacom > Unable to find an output 'DP-2

UPDATE! I lost ArcoLinux for a bit because my Dell workstation is not as Linux-friendly as I hoped it would be. With the latest ISO, the above command: xsetwacom set "Wacom Intuos Pro L Pen" MapToOutput HEAD-0 no longer works but I just found the fix and want to post it here for those who use dual m...

[OPEN] How can I open-source a web app?

Hi, I have a handful of music education web apps aimed at young children with an ear for music. Recently, I switched all of our computers to Linux and am now interested in releasing some of the apps as open source but am not sure how to go about it. The apps are HTML5-based and use JavaScript for th...

Re: [SOLVED] Anyone running 19.03 and if yes, is Timeshift working?

Funny, just saw the April 4 ISO. Downloading now .... Update! I've made a Timeshift shapshot of my previous distro and installed the fresh April ISO. What I did different was to install it into the "existing" partitions and amazingly, it booted just fine. Since then, I've installed the nvidia driver...
