That how-to link is outdated; the latest version of the rtl8723au wireless driver can be found at https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723au. Here are the steps to install: git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723au.git cd rtl8723au/ make sudo make install sudo modprobe 8723au When you update the kernel, you'll need to run these steps again to get ...

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 ...

Okay, I found out of it. I did a full apt-get purge nvidia* and apt-get dist-upgrade etc. But the thing that fixed it was actually to set the alternative correct. I guess this would've worked from the start. So here's how: $ sudo update-alternatives --config x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf Selection Path Priority ...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-319 nvidia-settings-319 Then edit bumblebee.conf sudo nano /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf It should have this lines: # You need to explicit the driver used by Bumblebee server.

i have same issue. In /var/log/syslog i have found next lines: [ 13.834336] NVRM: API mismatch: the client has the version 319.32, but [ 13.834336] NVRM: this kernel module has the version 304.88.

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.

Dash, type in "test" and it will show a test suite.When started it will take a while collecting and then show this: It will take a while but the end result will be a full report. Besides that... if you do no run into crashes or get error notices it basically works. Ubuntu (Linux in general) uses generic drivers. So if you can use it it works ;) For you ...

I found a very good tutorial online, and I was able to install those infamous Nvidia drivers on two computers without a problem. Here is what you do: Preparation 1) First, you need to open up a terminal shell. You can either start up your computer and go to a virtual shell Ctrl+Alt+F1 or login and open up the gnome terminal Ctrl+Alt+t 2) Then In the ...

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, ...

First open a terminal using ctrl + alt + T. Then type in the command: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current After it's installed, reboot. Mouse sensitivity can be adjusted by going to System Settings > Mouse & Touchpad and dragging the Pointer speed slider. You can find the System Settings Application in the launcher at the left of the screen or ...

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: ...

Go to your Bios suppr or del when you turn on your computer, and when in Bios look for "network stack" and set it to "enable." Also look for "iommu controller" and set it to "enable." Press f10 to save and reset. Maybe go on to the Realtek web site and download Linux drivers: ...

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, ...

I am fairly sure this is impossible. The problem is that CedarView drivers are closed-source, outdated and Intel is no longer updating them. The driver supports 3.2 kernel only, and its DKMS module fails to compile under any newer kernel (including 13.04's kernel: 3.8). Because the driver's source is closed, neither Canonical nor Ubuntu developers are ...

Try installing the new beta version of Nvidia 319.12 with bumblebee. sudo apt-get remove bumblebee-nvidia nvidia-current nvidia-settings sudo apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia nvidia-319 nvidia-settings-319 Link http://orkultus.wordpress.com/2013/04/20/how-to-nvidia-319-12-drivers-in-ubuntu-based-systems-with-bumblebee/

Sometimes the monitor itself requires some vertical/horizontal alignment via the buttons on the monitor (if it is a separate monitor); often there is an auto adjust button also that should do that for you. Otherwise if this is not the problem, could you go into the terminal (CTRL + ALT + T) and type xrandr then press enter, and post the output here, and ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

the only way to change brightness is to use this command sudo su echo 150 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness all other solution does not work at the moment. this is not my work around. I don't remember where I found this but it works and hats off to the person who gave this workaround :) Using Ubuntu 13.10 64Bit Wubi on Lenovo Z570

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 ...

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 ...

Reinstalling your drivers to the current version will solve this: You will have to boot normally, and when the black screen appears, press ctrl+alt+F1. Login, then use the following commands. 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 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 ...

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 ...

Check this question, and similar questions first. It happens when there are two different version of nvidia driver in the system. It is a known issue. You need to take care of the nvidia version of your kernel and the graphic card identical. Or, If you didn't uninstall your previous driver version. This can happen because nvidia-current-dev is of version ...

Since exFAT is still closed source and encumbered by patents I believe a better, more stable solution would be to use an NTFS partition to share data between Linux and Windows. NTFS works out of the box on Ubuntu and you can easily access the partition from most live CDs. Even though totally feasible, I wouldn't recommend using exfat being there a more ...

Please get a temporary wired ethernet connection. Open a terminal and do: sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer sudo modprobe -r wl <--if it isn't loaded, that's OK, just proceed. sudo modprobe b43 Detach the ethernet. Your wireless should now be working. If there are problems, look for and ...

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.
