I think it is not Intel adapter crashing, but the problem is with the open source Nvidia driver. Install the correct driver by sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 Reboot and switch to Nvidia sudo prime-select nvidia Then log off and on. But I suspect that Intel will work OK too.

You can easily fix it. Press Ctrl+Alt+F1. login to console and run sudo apt-get purge 'nvidia.*' That will remove Nvidia drivers. Then you can install some driver, like sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 Then reboot sudo reboot

I believe that opening the Additional Drivers app and installing the proprietary NVIDIA driver will automatically make the NVIDIA card be used for everything. Once the installation is done and you have rebooted, you can check by opening the NVIDIA X-server Settings app (not exact name, sorry) and going to the PRIME Profiles section.

You didn't say how you installed the NV Drivers. Unless I shut down the various components of X it's most likely to destroy the GUI. I'd open a text TTY, shut down the GUI, and reinstall the Drivers without deleting any files. Do you have anything that apt-get can repair?

You lack the needed firmware file to enable your card and driver to work properly. Please download this file on another computer and transfer it to the Ubuntu computer on a USB key or similar: http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/l/linux-firmware/linux-firmware_1.155_all.deb Drag and drop it to the desktop of the Ubuntu computer.

escapologist, like yourself I've been "banging my head against a brick wall" trying to solve/fix/workaround the Ubuntu nVIDIA GPU problems. So thanks for your solution, I've installed XUbuntu 14.04 and have not experienced ANY of the nVIDIA problems that are plaguing Ubuntu. Strange that both use the same NVIDIA drivers !!! If anyone tries the Ubuntu Live ...

The Dell XPS 13 9343 is a certified Ubuntu Laptop. You can install it without mayor issues, with drivers and etc. Quick note: Most drivers - minus Nvida drivers - are already in the kernel. In some cases like nvidia, the company behind the drivers don't allow adding there drivers in an Operating System. You would have to pay Nvidia a hefty some, to get the ...

I also have the late 2015 Dell XPS 13. The jack is Intel's new multi-purpose connector. It is an integrated USB-C and Thunderbolt 3. So you can use a dongle that operates on either standard. (I'm not allowed to comment or I would put this there).

Ok, so after following the instructions from "Installing Broadcom Wireless Drivers" and before giving the output demanded by Eduardo Cola, I did dhclient once again and it actually finished its job after reconnecting. The connection has been stable now for several minutes (much more than before), so if this is not one of those time windows after which the ...

Quite often, the weak signal is a symptom of the antenna wire being connected to connection #1 on the card when the default driver is expecting to see the signal at connection #2. Of course, you could open the laptop and switch the wire or you could install a newer driver that permits antenna selection at the driver level. Please obtain a temporary ethernet ...

You have two graphics adapters in your system. Now both of them are enabled and consume power. Also the nouveau driver is not good in terms of power. You need to install proprietary drivers. Run in terminal: sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 nvidia-prime and reboot. You can save more power and make the computer cooler if you switch to the integrated ...

I had the same thing. First using LibreOffice, which i uninstalled. Then after installing Openoffice. Selecting a piece of text in order to copy it everything froze. My problem was solved by turning off "Transparency" which can be found in "Tools-Options-View". Clearly a graphical issue indeed.

If you are using Ubuntu 14.04, you need to connect to internet by wire or a USB adapter and run in terminal: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-wily linux-firmware and reboot. This will install kernel 4.2 that supports this adapter and will update the firmware.

I have tried hard to work this TV-tuner with Ubuntu but with no luck.As working with a unsupported hardware in Linux is very difficult.So to use this TV-tuner you should have dual boot with Windows.But if I ever found a work-around I'll let you know.

The problem is that kernel 3.19 does not support firmware version 13 that you can get for Ubuntu 14.04. The easiest way to do offline is to install Ubuntu 15.10. The adapter should work without any effort. You can get it working on Ubuntu 14.04, but you will need to upgrade the kernel and the firmware. I can give you directions. But you will have to ...

I suggest installing Ubuntu 14.04.3. After you install the system, connect to internet by wire and upgrade the kernel by running: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-wily Wi-Fi should work after reboot. Ubuntu 14.04.4 will support this adapter out-of-the-box. It will be released soon. You do not need to ...

Your system cannot find the firmware for your wireless adapter. apt-file search -x 'iwlwifi-8000C-.*\.ucode' returns: linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-8000C-13.ucode The most likely solution to your issue seems to be to install that package, if you can find another method to connect your computer to the internet: sudo apt-get install linux-firmware ...

A couple different problems and solutions here. Problems with Windows holding on to the cache and nvme drive were solved by disabling fast startup on Windows per recommendation 3 here.

First install the NVIDIA drivers and NVIDIA Optimus to switch between intel and NVIDIA graphics. Open a terminal and execute : sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 nvidia-prime sudo reboot You can see whether the NVIDIA card is in use (Kernel driver in use: nvidia) with this command : lspci -k | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D' The output ...

Generally the drivers from the official Ubuntu repositories work fine.

You may need to edit grub to prevent the kernel from ever loading nouveau at boot. Run the following commands: cp /etc/default/grub ~/grubbackup sudo sed -i 's/GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="/GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nouveau.blacklist=1 /g' /etc/default/grub sudo update-grub Reboot.

Unfortunately, this plugin does not support Vivofit from Garmin. The only solution, I think, is to emulate Windows in VirtualBox.

Do not install bumblebee, it provides an outdated solution for NVIDIA graphics chips with Optimus support. You already have a solution for switching between the intel and NVIDIA graphics installed. The package is called nvidia-prime and should have been automatically installed when you installed the proprietary NVIDIA drivers 352 from Ubuntu repositories. ...

My MadCatz fightstick (1bad:f03a) works fine in Steam's Big Picture Mode out of the box on 14.04. Looks like a X360 controller ≠ official X360 controller "logic3 in lsusb" doesn't look like an official controller made and sold by Micosoft for the Xbox 360. Most drivers and software use the USB IDs to detect devices that they are compatible with. If your ...

The kernel driver for this adapter is quite unstable. I suggest that you install a better driver from source. The newer driver has been packaged to DKMS format and added it to ppa. If you install it from there, you will not need to re-install it after kernel upgrades. It can be installed by sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi sudo apt-get ...

If you don't have fglrx installed, then you should install it. It's the proprietary driver for AMD graphics cards, so you'll have much better performance with it installed. Open the Additional Drivers app (search it) and select the fglrx option. I'm not quite sure what this would have to do with Wine packages, but this is the answer to what you've currently ...

Select those with -updates suffix. If ...
