1. sudo xed /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ewscott9-snes9x-trusty.list 2. paste there 2 strings deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ewscott9/snes9x/ubuntu trusty main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ewscott9/snes9x/ubuntu trusty main 3. add GPG key.

Sorry for my ignorance but where I can replace "xenial"?

Overclocking the Nvidia graphics card on Linux Mint

Overclocking the Nvidia graphics card on Linux Mint

Owners of computers with Nvidia probably know that after installing the proprietary drivers is automatically installed a graphical program to configure the driver - the NVIDIA X Server Settings. But it has no customization features overclocking and fan control card and the parameters of rotation of the fan for cooling exposed by default.



Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.
Owner and main writer of MintGuide.org is not a native English speaker.


If you want to manually set the overclock the graphics card and to manage the process of cooling the graphics card, you need to enable an additional component Coolbits.

Warning. Perform the following steps at your own risk.

Overclocking does not work on all video cards or does it depend on a particular version of the driver. On the proprietary driver installed by default should work without problems. Otherwise, overclocking will not turn on.

 

1. Open a terminal, copy and run the following commands:

sudo nvidia-xconfig
sudo nvidia-xconfig --cool-bits=5

2. Then restart the computer.

3. After a new login open from the system menu NVIDIA X Server Settings and go to Thermal Settings, where you should now see the advanced settings control the rotation speed of the cooling fan on the video card.

4. If something goes wrong, you can always reset thermal settings by clicking Reset to Hardware Default.

Note.

cool-bits=1 enables the possibility of overclocking
cool-bits=4 includes the ability to manually control the fan
cool-bits=5 includes both


examples of commands that can be added to autostart every time is not to go into the GUI:

overrides the operating frequencies of the GPU

nvidia-settings-a "[gpu:0]/GPUOverclockingState=1" -a "[gpu:0]/GPU2DClockFreqs=270,162" -a "[gpu:0]/GPU3DClockFreqs=405,324"

set the manual operation of the fun and the rotation speed in percent of maximum

nvidia-settings-a "[gpu:0]/GPUFanControlState=1" -a "[fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeed=62"

You can also play with a python script nvidia-fanspeed. There are video instructions. Thank the person who made this video.

May the Force be with you,
Good Luck!!!
