Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ MintLinuxPPC, bottom 1/3 of screen black

Posted by: badbear811 Dec 13 2014, 12:15 PM

I have recently installed Mint Linux PPC 11 on a PowerBook G4 12" 1.33 MHz laptop. Installation went well. The bottom third of the desktop is now black (the top 2/3 is normal), and scrolling within the internet browser is messed up as the bottom 1/3 doesn't refresh properly.
I've researched this, and seen fixes with this on the Mint Linux PPC forum (now offline and so I can't post there), but they all involve editing a xorg.conf file. I don't have a xorg.conf file and I don't know how to get one or make one.
Is there anyone out there that can help me - I'm just a newbie and don't know what I'm doing. Otherwise I'm really liking this Linux - its revived my PPC!
Thanks so much!
