I've been tearing my hair out trying to get the proprietary NVIDIA drivers to work with my Macbook Pro 4,1. I've installed 12.04, upgraded to 12.10 and 13.04. I've tried using the GUI installer, APT-GET via command line, and the NVIDIA .run installer.
I always get the same result. It boots and hangs right before launching LIGHTDM, with a blank screen and a flashing cursor.
I'm fairly new to Linux, but know my way around a computer generally.
Any help would be appreciated!
