Just upgraded a box from Mint 18.3 to 19.2. In 18.3, I always used the gksudo xed command in a terminal to modify files and in fact used it successfully yesterday to install the optimized app. Mint 19.2 no longer uses that command and trying with sudo returns a command not found message. What is the proper command in Mint 19.2?

Thanks for the help and advice mikey. What alarmed me was the fact that the actual clock time was longer on the very first optimized work unit compared to the stock app. I will be a little more patient this weekend and fiddle with the settings some. Have other cards to optimize as well.....

Well, now I am truly baffled! I used the settings for the 1660 as suggested on one of my 1650s and the work unit did not error out. However, whereas I was getting 16/17min run times with the stock app (no dedicated CPU core), the opti app was only 42% complete after 20 minutes. Promptly aborted that wu and deleted the opti file and it appears run times are back close to where they were after 50% completion. I have to get out and help pay for the cost of running these things soon but I will tinker around this evening or by the weekend at the latest and at least get the drivers updated to the same version especially on the identical CPUs.

Could someone please suggest settings for both a GTX 1650 and a GTX 950? I used the settings mikey provided for my GTX 1060 and am getting the expected 13min run times. Tried the same settings on the 1650 and got comp errors. Not sure what or in which direction to adjust.

Can someone explain to me how both of my GTX 1650s are outperforming my GTX 1060? One of the 1650s is even in an identical computer to the 1060. All of my hosts should be visible. If it would be helpful I could post some screenshots from GPU-Z in the morning (early riser and it"s getting a little late for me now). I do not believe it is a clock speed issue but could be wrong. I did notice the 1060 is at 85C (but not throttling) while the 1650s are at about 70C. TIA for any insight.

I'd rather he spend his time fixing the problem than replying to every post and spoon feeding us information. He has already stated he is working on it.

I'm sure they will be re-validated at some point else Slicker would have shut the feeder down.
