My ubuntu 11.04 is only booting in terminal.
From the terminal when I enter command
I see the following:
The NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0 is not supported by the 173.14.30 NVIDIA Driver Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device! Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
nvidia-current is already the newest version
Could it be that I have
nvidia-current installed but it is not being used?
Nvidia 173 is being used?
How can I fix this?
EVGA 512-P3-1301-KR GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 32-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
but it did not fix the problem. I'm still starting in terminal mode.
sudo remove nvidia-current
sudo rebootdid not fix the problem either.
sudo nvidia-xconfig says:
Wrote new X configuration file to
sudo reboot did not fix the problem.
I installed nvidia drivers from 'Additional Drivers'. To fix my other issues I gave
nvidia 173 a try instead of
My xorg.conf is here: http://pastebin.com/p5602jHW
I was able to put this on pastebin by booting in recovery mode and selecting
failsafex and then selecting
run ubuntu in low graphics mode for just one session
So, as I was in the recovery mode for one session, I went to "Additional Drivers" and noticed that
nvidia173 was being used and not
nvidia-current. I made this change from additional drivers and then rebooted the system. Now, I'm starting in GUI mode but have few other issues.
- Second monitor does not come on, only one monitor is working
- there are no minimize or maximize buttons on windows (If I keep terminal open with
metacity --replacethen it fixes the minimize/maximize buttons problem but I have to keep the terminal window open)
- I don't see top and bottom launch panels
Also, now after this change my xorg.conf is : http://pastebin.com/TtQWY9pF
