- How to install the Nvidia Drivers 2 answers
I have installed the Catalyst drivers in my Ubuntu 11.10 64bit but they don't seem to be working.
lspci -nn | grep VGA returns:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0046] (rev 02) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : ATI Technologies Inc Madison [AMD Radeon HD 5000M Series] [1002:68c1]
It seems I have 2 cards in my system, on Intel and one ATI, I want to work with the ATI but the drivers don't seem to be working. What can I do?
