I suspect that your relatively new device is not covered in the relatively old 12.04 kernel. I suggest you get a temporary internet connection. Open a terminal and run: uname -r Is your kernel version annotated '-pae'? If so, please do: sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-cw-3.10-precise-generic-pae If not, do: sudo apt-get install ...

If you choose to use non official drivers, pay attention that it doesn't support all cards. Check it here: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#Supported_devices For example (not supported): Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:4365] Check your card: lspci -vnn -d 14e4:

I had this happen to me on Ubuntu 14.10 x86_64 with kernel 3.16.0-28 after loading Nvidia 346 drivers. After login I would get the blank Ubuntu background wallpaper and nothing else, no way to do anything. There are many similar problems posted online over the past four years; most of the solutions did not work for me. Attempting to restart unity I got an ...

I had an identical problem with the Acer V17 Nitro (VN7), but upgrading the Linux kernel even to version 3.18 did not completely solve the problem, but only made the touchpad work while right/left clicks on the ClickPad part are ignored. The enable-rightbutton.sh code did not work either and return the error that there is no property such as "Synaptics Soft ...

Search additional drivers in the unity search box, click to open it. You can enable the proprietary driver there.

I have found the solution to this problem and will proceed with how I came to solve the issue. The problem was not caused by the Nvidia driver or GTK like I originally thought but was due to an old bug in Compiz to do with the screen refresh rate on Nvidia cards as pointed out by Mateusz Stachowski on Google+ who also provided a link to the bug report on ...

I believe that one or more drivers that require blacklisting are still loading. Please open a terminal and do: sudo -i echo "blacklist b43" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf echo "blacklist bcma" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf echo "blacklist brcmsmac" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf echo "blacklist ssb" >> ...

I ended up downloading the newest drivers straight from NVIDIA from here and installing them manually. Obviously, this won't automatically update in the future (AFAIK). The path I had to take was actually quite convoluted, involving adding the nomodeset flag to GRUB, then killing lightdm, and then running the installer. I followed some suggestions from here ...

Laptops often overheat when their graphics cards are used near capacity. This is why gamers typically use cooling pads with them, and also why I recommend everyone use cooling pads all the time. I will now give you not one but two solutions. Buy a LARGE cooling pad wih one or two large diameter fans. they can actually cost less than units with smaller ...

I used to run an older version of Ubuntu, some seven years ago, on a machine that had an Nvidia Geforce card installed. To install the proprietary graphics drivers, I had to direct my browser to the nvidia website and select the appropriate options. Now, it seems to me that "GTX 640" may not actually be the card's name. There is no "GTX" 640; however, ...
