    Graphics problem


    Hey guys =)


    I am running Mint on my pc right now, off a usb flash... because it is the only distro I could find to run solely off a 2 gb usb... have to get a new hdd.

    The problem is, for some reason , I cannot get simple things such as 'visual effects' to work. I am not sure of the graphics card I have, just started using it and unable to locate where it says what I have.

    Could someone maybe give a noob some pointers?

    Thank you in advance.

    Your Graphics Card doesn't support 'visual effects' and its not possible to enable those in your machine.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
