    System76 Drivers on Mint

    Will the System76 drivers work in Mint?
    If not, can someone smarter than me figure out how to make it work?

    Thanks!

    They will not work in Mint.

    You might be able to make them work with a little python hacking and experimentation.

    That said, I have no way of knowing if the fixes applied by the driver will be compatible with Mint.

    Thanks Thomas!

    In that case, I'm looking for someone that knows Python, and is smarter than me.

    Can anyone assist?

    Re: System76 Drivers on Mint

    I bought a serval performance and the first thing I did was throw mint on it. My video card is good, audio is fine, and the webcam works. This is all without any special drivers. I only have minor gotcha's like if the monitor powers down I can only get it back sometimes, or not all the special keys work. I think the problems we're so minor I don't think I'll even go out of my way to fix them.

    Your mileage my vary but I love mint and this machine together.

    Just installed Mint 7 on my Gazu1. Webcam is out of commission but other than that everything seems to be running perfectly. I was having lots of flaky issues with wireless that seem to be resolved now. Not sure if it is Mint that fixed it or just the fresh install.

    Like Thomasaaron said, the System76 Driver Utility will not run on this distro.

    The packages for installing the web cam drivers are in the System76 driver. you can pop it open, extract and install them. There's a few special considerations for the GazU1, though. Let me know via email if you need further help with this.
