It's Bumbleebee. Bumblebee blacklists the nvidia-driver. So Ubuntu is trying to load drivers at start up, but they are blacklisted. Uninstalling Bumblebee helped me.

The source of the problem probably starts with installing the 331 driver from the .run file provided by NVIDIA. Here are the steps that worked for me and resolved both this and the low-graphics mode problem that subsequently came up. Remove Nvidia proprietary drivers: sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia* Add xorg edgers PPA for NVIDIA drivers and ...

Here's what I do (via PPA): I add a xorg-edgers PPA first: sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa Then I either install from command line or from additional drivers section. First, update your package list: sudo apt-get update Additional drivers are now updated with newer packages. And alternatively, from terminal, install nvidia-331 (for ...

This is a bug (LP #1214508). You can switch using: sudo prime-select intel sudo prime-select nvidia Also, Bumblebee is still supported so you can install it if you prefer. You'll have to remove nvidia-prime then as you can't use both.

I had this same problem just a few hours ago, the latest 331 is broken. Downgrading to the previous driver or any other, included the open-source nouveau won't work, the only solution is uninstall all nvidia packages and install the driver from the .run you can download from the nvidia website. http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us There, ...

As you get the following error: Error: alternatives are not set up properly You may try to set the alternatives yourself. When I switch to Intel I see: update-alternatives: using /usr/lib/nvidia-331-prime/ld.so.conf to provide /etc/ld.so.conf.d/x86_64-linux-gnu_GL.conf (x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf) in manual mode update-alternatives: using ...

On some computers the new versions that are installed with the intel-linux-graphics-installer have those exact same issues, I had it happen with two netbooks so it dosn't seem to be a conflict between nouveau/intel but a problem with the newer graphics installed from Intel.

Holy crap, I finally got it to work. Okay, so here's what I did. From the last line of lspci it was clear that I needed the RTS5227 driver. However, I really couldn't find this anywhere online. Instead, I took the RTS5229 driver from the Realtek website and did the following. I uploaded these files to use as the RTS5227 driver for anyone else in need. ...

Just to sum up to the Brenden's answer, the real problem is with the libsdl1.2 package, as stated in this bug report. The solution is ready, but somehow isn't available on default Ubuntu package sources yet (at least not for me). So, a way to solve this is to import the developer PPA and install the patched package directly: sudo apt-add-repository ...

I had the exact same problem since 2 days ago after an upgrade of nvidia-331 package (331.20-0ubuntu8~xedgers~saucy1). I then tried a few approaches, eg. ppa-purge, using the official nvidia-current, nvidia-319 from ubuntu repositories. However it could not automatically start up graphical interface properly (always say to run in low resolution mode then ...

I opened a terminal and launched system-config-printer, the old configuration interface. I followed the steps until I was presented with 3 driver options for the printer. system-config-printer dumps data about these drivers to the terminal, in particular the URL for the deb file served by Epson. I manually downloaded and installed the driver. With the ...

The root of the problem described above is probably a lightdm bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity-greeter/+bug/1292467.

To find the model of your wireless card: lspci -nn | grep 0280 The pipe symbol | is on the right side of my keyboard on the same key with backslash.

There's an application called cheese which can do this. IIRC it's installed by default. If not, you can install it manually using the software center or by typing sudo apt-get install cheese into a terminal window.

You don't need to do much. As per comments, check for additional drivers. Though, I recommend running a SMART check on HDD if you were manipulating them in process. You would need actions if: You installed something from source with -march=native. -- reinstall it. You did some manual non-standart configuration to adapt to hardware -- check if it still ...

Not every update, but every kernel update, that is why ubuntu uses DKMS for automatic compilation of modules for new kernels. As @Radu Rădeanu wrote you didn't call install function. To unpack archive in a script use tar xf archivename use make && sudo make install && sudo shutdown -r now, because if make fails your script will still try to ...
