Hardware / washed out laptop screen [SORTED]
« on: September 22, 2018, 11:22:41 am »
hello
ive just fitted a new screen to my lenovo thinkpad e530 the old one having been broken for the last couple of years and ive been using a external monitor , so i have forgotten what the original laptop screen looked like , this has coincided with installing peppemint 9 , now the new  laptop screen looks terrible it has a slight colour cast and lacks contrast and the colour is very weak  ,its ok for basic tasks but will be useless for photo editing or even viewing photos , now i still have the external monitor which i can use and gives excellent colours with peppermint 9  ,so this is not the end of the world

, but it would  be nice to get the laptop screen looking better ..  ive installed redshift and it just changes the colour cast , and the gui does not seem to work in peppermint .
it could be that the new screen is not very good ,
 is there any way of improving  adjusting the colour /contrast  of the laptop screen

Hardware / using a monitor screen with a laptop
« on: October 03, 2015, 11:46:52 am »
hello
my laptop a lenovo e530 has developed a screen fault , a horizontal row of dead pixels right across the screen about 3 inches from the bottom , this appears to be a hardware problem ,the rest of the laptop is still ok and i cannot afford a new one at the moment ,so i am considering a external monitor screen instead . what i would like to do is switch off the laptop screen and use the monitor screen only ,  does anyone know if this is possible , and how easy would it be to get this to work  as most monitors seem to mention windows drivers ect ,  i do not want to buy a monitor screen to find it will not work with peppermint  as i could put that money towards a new laptop
        thankyou

sorry messed that last message up
buttons work on start up,,  first ran    xinput --disable "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
buttons still work
second ran    xinput --disable "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint"
buttons dead but work again on restart

david@david-ThinkPad-Edge-E530 ~ $ xinput --disable "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"david@david-ThinkPad-Edge-E530 ~ $ xinput --disable "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint"
david@david-ThinkPad-Edge-E530 ~ $

restart buttons work again  so ive tried just
  xinput --disable "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint"
and buttons dead , so looks like first command not needed ?

ran them both and after the second one    xinput --enable "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"    the buttons were dead  :)  but they work again after a restart , is there any way of killing them permanently  ? as i cannot imagine ever wanting to use them

hello
i have a lenovo thinkpad e530 laptop , and i prefer to use a external mouse , i have managed to disable the touchpad but the buttons seem to remain live ,these are at the top of the touchpad so it is easy to accidently knock one  this is very annoying as  it can totally mess up what i am doing ,  anyone know how to stop these buttons working ?,
        thankyou
