I have this desktop:
- i7 2600
- 8 GB RAM ddr3
- Board Intel dh61ww
- Geforce Nvidia GT520-cn 2Gb ddr3
I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit (kernel 3.2.0-23-generic). I want to setup two Samsung 22" LED monitors and get my video card drivers working.
I downloaded and installed Nvidia driver 295.59. I tried the following with that driver and also with 302.17.
I ran these commands:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r), sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*, sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-nouveau vim /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
In the vim text editor, I added the following lines to blacklist.conf:
blacklist vga16fb blacklist nouveau blacklist rivafb blacklist nvidiafb blacklist rivatv
Then I ran these commands:
sh NVIDIA.run sudo service lightdm start
I rebooted, and after rebooting ran:
After reboot I got a screen resolution of 800x600. I ran
nvidia-settings and it said:
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.
xorg.conf slightly to set up a resolution to work property.
I don't have any image on my monitor and I dont have any option in the Nvidia X server settings.
