I am new to ubuntu and put a new graphics card in my computer. I need to know how to install the driver information from the cd, because there is no autoplay or anything like that. I need very simple instructions, because I have never used ubuntu before, I just figured out how to close windows
If you are using an nVIDIA driver I'd recommend using the built-in
logout & login
ATI uses the
Logout and login to see your new drivers in action
You can install your graphics card's drivers directly from Ubuntu, you don't need any CD in fact.
Open a Terminal by typing Terminal on the Dash. Run this command:
Then open Software Sources from the Dash, go to the Additional Drivers tab and select the driver for your graphics card. Then, just apply the changes.
Open Jockey by typing Additional Drivers on the Dash. Follow the same steps that above; select your graphic's card drivers and apply the changes.
