Using a fresh install of 11.10; I've literally done NOTHING other than install the nvidia drivers.
It may be worthing noting that jockey-gtk did not offer me a proprietary driver to install.
After installing the nvidia drivers with the following statments:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
jockey now shows that the proprietary nvidia driver is installed and in use; I can use the nvidia settings gui fine; glxinfo | grep gl shows:
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation server glx version string: 1.4 server glx extensions: client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation client glx version string: 1.4 client glx extensions: GL_ARB_texture_rectangle, GL_ARB_texture_rg, GL_ARB_texture_rgb10_a2ui, GL_NV_texture_multisample, GL_NV_texture_rectangle, GL_NV_texture_shader,
Tried to force unity via adding:
to /etc/environment, which ended up with being left with just a wallpaper;
So obviously the unity WM can't run; I don't get any errors messages; I've googled to try and find where whatever the hell this new gdm logs to no avail.
Another probably useful tidbit:
causes a segmentation fault; No information is provided before that either, so that is also useless.
What can I do..?
