Mint 18.3 cinnamon help


Recommended Posts

I installed mint tweaked it up and was having video problems. So i tried removing the intel driver and give the modesetting driver a try.


sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-intel


It failed now the PC will only boot to a black screen with a white blinking cursor and do nothing.

I have a mint disc made. how can i boot from the disk and reinstall the intel driver. Or do i just have to start over?

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel

I was able to get it.  Hold shift didn't work for me. just had to tap it at the right time.


 Booted to recovery and was able to launch terminal from there and reinstalled intel driver.


Back up and  working. It appears that flash player is causing my screen to go black for a few seconds.
