I am having troubles installing the Nvidia driver on my new installation of Ubuntu Gnome Remix (12.10, at first). I would be very grateful if I could receive some help from a kind soul out there.
I have tried the following so far:
- Setting nvidia-current and nvidia-current-updates from the GUI
Setting nvidia-current after downloading sources:
sudo apt-get purge nvidia-* sudo apt-get install linux-source sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
Trying the same with this line instead:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:noobslab/nvidia-quantal
After the three tries I updated to 13.04 and tried all the same again.
The result is for all cases:
The machine boots into what looks like an old version of Gnome, the screen resolution is very low. when I try to open the nvidia settings I get an error. typing this after installation:
does not help.
- I have a ASUS GeForce GTX 660 2GB PhysX CUDA
- The system works, but laggs, when I use the nouveau driver.
I will be forever gratefull if someone can help me out, I have tried for a good 7 hours to fix the problem now.
