Harry, thanks for the reply....
The only reason that I asked this question is because I came across the following web page while surfing for an answer. My problem is that NOTHING that this guy says makes any sense to me!
The link is: http://vcn.bc.ca/~dugan/t23.html
First of all, is he saying that 3D capabilities are possible on a T23 and if so, does this mean that Compiz settings can work?
Also, what is your opinion of the best distro to use with an older laptop like the T23?
My wife really is happy with Mint 6 yet support was pulled for this version in April. I honestly don't know that this is even a problem but I'd hate to think that her machine could become a security risk because it is no longer supported.
As you can probably tell we are very new to using the Linux operating system but even though I'm only a couple of weeks into it, I don't see myself ever returning to a Windows based system. I honestly feel that I've found the perfect operating system in Linux.
Right now I'm reading "Linux for Dummies" and have a second book on order (Linux Complete Bible, or something like that) that I plan on reading next. I figure if I'm going to use this system I need to use it to it's fullest capabilities.
Even though this question is totally unrelated, I'll ask it anyway......
Each time that I log onto Mint 6 I have to reset my keyboard layout to USA 105 key.
For some reason the system keeps defaulting the keyboard to an "Ireland" setting.
Now I will admit that I have a lot of Irish blood running through my veins but I doubt that Linux is able to figure this out, no matter how good the operating system is.
If you, (or anyone else) has any advice concerning this problem I'd love to hear it.
I really do appreciate you taking the time to answer my previous question and if you have any ideas on what I've written above, I would be very happy to hear them.
Have a great evening.
