Re: blinking cursor after nvidia driver install

There were 2 choices and I picked "1" which I believe was the 340. The other option was for a reference to the one in test which I believe was the 390. Another thing, after getting back to my desktop, display res was at a default 1024x768 and won't increase to anything beyond this. Don't I have to a...

Re: MX 17 & 18 Repository: the birdtray thread
