I just installed a fresh copy of Mint 19.1 64bit (including all updates) on my Workstation (8 core Xeon W3565@3.2GHz), which has a Quadro FX 580 in it.
The only options for my Quadro FX 580 were 340.107 or the Nouveau driver.
After the activation of the nvidia driver, the xfce4-terminals started to have a lag in response, meaning I enter keys or whole commands, but the corresponding characters were not shown on the screen immediately. Even for complete unix commands (that had already been executed), the resulting output was not shown on the screen. This does not happen every time, but several times in a minute.
I then deinstalled the nvidia driver, and the nouveau driver does not have this problem.
Then I reinstalled the nvidia driver, and the problem was back again.
The last driver used in Mint 18.1 on the same configuration didn’t have that problem.
Questions: What should I do to get a correctly working setup?
Or is the FX 580 no longer supported?
