i have a laptop with Ubuntu 13.10 GNOME in it. GNOME Shell version is 3.10.1. Here's what I got from running the following command:
lspci | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce 610M] (rev a1).
In the Additional Drivers pane, I have listed just my wifi card driver. How can I install Nvidia drivers without bumblebee and via ppa? I'm really confused about this. I would like to install the 319.17 drivers, which are the stable version for my graphics card. I don't know what to install (nvidia, nvidia-current, nvidia graphic 319, etc.) could you tell me what I have to do to install nvidia 319,17 (or just 319) via ppa and without bumblebee, please!
I tried going to System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers to check for additional Nvidia drivers, but there weren't any Nvidia drivers in the list in the Additional Drivers tab. However when I checked in the Ubuntu Software Center, there were several different nvidia packages there, as shown in this screenshot: http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/6374/8w0l.png
I have already tried to install the nvidia-319 package from the Ubuntu Software Center, but after reboot Ubuntu did not load correctly. I could only see the mark of Ubuntu GNOME and nothing else, the desktop or GNOME Shell didn't even load. I also couldn't go to the login page. Then I removed the nvidia-319 package, and now I have my system back. Through all of this I have been using the default gdm package for the login screen display manager application.
I still don't know what Nvidia package to install and how to get the proprietary Nvidia graphics package to work on my system. Please help i don't know what to do. Thanks in advance!
