- How do I install the Nvidia drivers? 12 answers
I've recently installed Ubuntu, and my mouse is extremely laggy. I have attempted using multiple mice, some wired, others wireless, but to no avail. Turning off 3D Ubuntu on the log on screen doesn't help at all.
A few weeks later I installed TF2 to see if it would run well in Ubuntu. Unfortunately the game lags on the menu, and the graphics were automatically set to low (very rough, pixel-y edges).
I've currently got the Beta driver 3.10 (I'm pretty sure its the one Steam insists I install over the others) on my Nvidia GT 640.
My specs are:
Intel i5 2320 @ 3.00GHz
Gigabyte 2GB DDR3 GT 640
DZ77BH-55K Intel Motherboard
I'm currently running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (64-bit) dual-booted alongside Windows 8 (64-bit). The UEFI is disabled and the motherboard uses BIOS instead (the people who built this computer knew what they were doing!).
Am I using the open source or official drivers? How can I fix this? Is Ubuntu using the integrated graphics on the processor instead of the graphics card?
