I've been having a nightmare trying to install the 635M Nvidia drivers in my Asus N46VJ. I've install bumblebee and follow a bunch of suggestion from many places, I think maybe all the attempts I've done to install the drivers are in conflict with each other or maybe I'm missing one important step.
My current status is this:
according to system details, I'm not using my Nvidia card.
I checked for the additional drivers and always got nothing, after many tries but without knowing how, I got, FINALLY!, some driver in the list.
In my desperate intent to try to get the card to work I tried to activated all the listed options, but it seems not to make any difference.
As you can see in the picture the driver is "not currently in use"
When I open the Nvidia X server Settings, I get this message.
Then I go to the terminal and get this message:
and use this line command to restart
sudo restart lightdm
after that I got this message and I'm stuck in a 640x840 resolution. :S additionally all the system and ndivia settings are the same as before.
To get back to my resolution I use this command line.
cd /ext/X11 sudo rm xorg.conf
I've seen something about Kernel, headers and "black lists" but honestly I have no idea what are those things.
I know this is kind a known and common problem but I couldn't resolve it. is something inherent to Ubuntu 12.04? Maybe I'm still to much new at it.
Thanks for your time.
