You can, I have done it myself without any issues. Though as the comment says, you need to remove the 3rd party drivers before moving the SSD to the other.

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.

You can download the driver for your video card for Ubuntu 64bit from here. Assuming that you are using Ubuntu 64bit now. If you installed Ubuntu 32 bit, there is 331 version of the same driver for Ubuntu 32bit. Save your driver somewhere where you can easily access it, like your user home directory or inside a newly created nvidia directory in your user ...

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 ...

You can use jockey-text to disable and enable Nvidia drivers in Ubuntu. For example: Run jockey-text --list to get the list of available options. Run sudo jockey-text -d xorg:nvidia_304 to remove the 304 driver. Run sudo jockey-text -e xorg:nvidia_304 to enable the same driver. Run jockey-text --help to see the help manual.

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, ...

Mouse sensitivity can be adjusted by going to System Settings > Mouse & Touchpad and dragging the Pointer speed slider.

You can't very easily. AMD hasn't updated the drivers for the AMD Radeon™ HD 4000, HD 3000 and HD 2000 Series they only support up to xserver 1.12 and the kernel up to 3.4. Ubuntu 13.10 is using (at the time of writing on a freshly upgraded system) Xserver 1.14 and kernel 3.11. The last supported version of ubuntu is the 12.04 LTS (without the Quantal ...

I was in the same situation as you few days back. I bought a new laptop Lenovo Y510P which had the following specs, CPU: Intel Haswell Core i7 4700HQ Memory: 8GB DDR3 Graphics Onboard: Integrated Intel® HD Graphics 4600 Graphic Nvidia: NVIDIA®GeForce® GT 755M My advice (which I read in several places) is that you need to use the latest Ubuntu which in ...

Apparently the Linux headers have changed enough since 13.04 to break this driver. After many days of work I have finally fixed the compile issues and gotten the driver working. You can find the fixed driver, along with the detailing of all of my changes from the original version released by Realtek, at my Github repo here: ...

This is a known bug, with a lot of duplicates. I followed robamlers advice, and downgraded the driver to the previous version. It worked, at least for me. Steps: Remove bcmwl-kernel-source version 6.20 sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source I rebooted, just to make sure nothing remaining of the old driver. Not ...

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 ...

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.

FIXED!! - Well, PATCHED! https://code.google.com/p/realtek-8188cus-wireless-drivers-3444749-ubuntu-1304/ After 24 hours of pulling my hair out over the same problem, I found this link somewhere in a response to the topic. Bless this soul for patching Realtek's drivers to work on current kernels 3.8.x & 3.9.x - Its a DEB package, so no compiling issues, ...

You can't use Windows drivers on Ubuntu. You probably won't need drivers depending on your hardware. I would recommend that you try Ubuntu before installing that way you'll know if all hardware works OK. Boot from the Ubuntu CD/DVD or bootable USB, and choose try Ubuntu.

What you want is called "natural scrolling", there is no immediate GUI tool but you can make it with dconf-editor . From the dash open dconf-editor, on the left side select `org/gnome/settings-daemon/peripherals/touchpad There you check natural-scroll

There is quite possibility that some of your drivers might be missing while Ubuntu installs most of them. You can go to 'System Settings' and under 'Hardware' section click on 'Additional Drivers'. It will automatically search for drivers and it will ask if you want to install those drivers. You can search for System Settings by hitting the start button ...

First remove all the old drivers: sudo apt-get purge nvidia* Then reinstall the current drivers: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current Reboot, and your're good to ...

I've done it myself as well, it is completely possible however there could be a few settings off (i.e. Screen resolution). If the new hardware/laptop requires new third party drivers Ubuntu will automatically call that our for you or you can just manually installed them to get better performance.

As far as I can tell that simply means that HP does no longer officially support Linux drivers. That's far from saying that HP printers don't work on Linux. Looking at HPLIP project news page, updates are coming at constant pace http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/news.html Before buying a new printer/scanner search "linux [printer-model-number]" to check ...

I just had this exact same problem a couple weeks ago, so I put a working driver up on my Git Hub. I also changed it so that it does away with the 20 dBm Tx Power limit and let's you go up to 33 dBm. The instructions are in the repo. You can clone this with: git clone https://github.com/FreedomBen/rtl8188ce-linux-driver.git If you don't have Git ...
