I am currently using ubuntu 12.04 I have acer aspire timelinex 3830tg with 2GB nvidia GeForce GT540M graphics card
To enable my graphics card I followed following steps.
1.) I activated nvidia_current and nvidia_current_updates from additional drivers
2.) sudo nvidia-xconfig
3.) then reboot
Following these steps I got following errors
1.) my resolution is 640x480...(there is no option of 1366x768 in display...previously there was 1366x768 when nvidia-xconfig command was not entered)
2.) when I open nvidia-settings it shows me following error "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run 'nvidia-xconfig' as root) and restart the X server."
Problem need to be solved
1.) Change resolution to 1366x768
2.) Also how to check my nvidia graphics working or not
Please some one please help me to solve these issues...I am seriously in need of my graphics card... I wan't my nvidia graphics card work as my intel graphics smoothly I am not willing to use bumblebee
