That is actually a misprint from the ppa. All drivers listed as Nvidia* are proprietary drivers and are not opensource. Nouveau is the only open source driver available and all others are proprietary. Yes, there is an advantage.

You can switch it back this way. Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and login into console. Run there two commands sudo aticonfig --px-igpu sudo reboot If you are using a computer with UEFI this problem could be caused by Secure Boot option. Disable it in BIOS and try again.

Finally, I wasn't able to make xcalib work. Instead, I installed CompizConfig Settings Manager as instructed in the solution here and started using the shortcuts in CompizConfig Settings Manager -> Accesibility -> Negative. If you cannot see the Negative option, you have to install compiz-plugins: sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins

This adapter is not supported by amdgpu. It is supported by radeon as you see in the output. It is extremely unlikely that older GPUs will be ever supported by amdgpu. radeon driver will be supported and I do not see what is the problem.

I don't think this is currently possible. The most sensible I've seen is plugging both GPU cards into the same monitor, and using that monitor's input switching features when you want to flip between your host and your guest.

To test Unity 8, it requires Mir support, which is currently only partially implemented in the proprietary Nvidia drivers and at this time not enough to run Unity 8 / Mir properly. In my case I installed anyhow (just to see what happens) according to this link and what happens in my case, upon selecting the unity symbol at the login screen and then ...

You do not need to do anything. Both adaters are supported by the same proprietary drivers. Make sure that the latest proprietary driver is installed and replace the card. In Ubuntu 16.04 it is nvidia-361.

SOLVED. After much researching, i noticed 2 main problems: 1- There was a problem with my integrated graphics card i915 drivers, and i found out that i either had to patch my kernel with an unnofficial patch, or install my virtual machine on UEFI mode, and simulate a bios startup. For this i had to instal ovmf. apt-get install ovmf 2- The windows nvidia ...

If you are using ubuntu server (or minimal via net-install) without X server and any desktop environment then you shouldn't install any graphics drivers (neither the opensource nor the proprietary) as they have xserver as dependency (see this http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/xserver-xorg-video-nouveau for the nouveau driver). The virtual terminal (console) ...

With the installation of the Nvidia driver in Ubuntu distros a second portion is also installed which provides control over the setting for your Nvidia card and it's outputs [Nvidia-Settings] (to those who keep editing my posts to remove the apostrophe from it's that is not reasonable as the apostrophe signifies that the term "it's" is posessive and the HDMI ...

Intel still performs better as you can see here: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Intel-DDX-May-Tests OTOH, there are a lot of discussion about the slow development in the Intel driver: https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/4cojj9/it_is_probably_time_to_ditch_xf86videointel/ To make it complete, the last open source developer ...

You copied 20-intel.conf to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/. It doesn't exist on my 16.04 with Intel graphics, so simply remove it. The instructions for 4.4 on that page also somehow suggest to "fix" the 4.4 distribution driver or firmware with the older 4.3 driver from the Intel website. In the mean time Intel has published a package for 4.4. If you followed ...

You could try installing a newer kernel and hope it offers better support for the Skylake architecture. From here (presumed you have a 64-bit system) download form the amd64 section all three packages that don't have the lowlatency in their names. After that, open a terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T), navigate to the folder where you downloaded the packages and do a ...

Welcome to the club. old problem with no solution. Depend on what you are doing with your laptop, you should consider switching to intel graphic in Nvidia X server settings.

NVIDIA does not sign its proprietary video driver. The Linux kernel always checks for signatures in kernel modules, even with secure boot disabled.

I have an older AMD desktop. It seems that the (default) nouveau driver that is installed by Ubuntu does not work that well with an (old) AMD processor. Whether this problem is limited to my computer and this question or applies generically to other AMD computers, I do not know. To fix this problem select one of the Nvidia (tested) drivers. This can be done ...

On Dell Latitude laptops, the auto-brightness can be disabled in the BIOS. Reboot the computer and hold F2 before it starts. Look around in the menus for ALS or ambient light sensor. There you will be able to disable it.

If you have another spare graphics card to run the X desktop, or you run in headless mode, you can try this solution: Experimental OpenCL driver for Ubuntu 16.04 Basically, this is a OpenCL-only fglrx driver and it does not conflict with other graphics drivers. You can install a low-end GPU for desktop only, and use your FirePro just for compute. In my case ...

I've solved this issue with the help of Amias feedback. Instead of using the drivers provided by Ubuntu, I've download the newest versions of the GPU driver (367.27) as well as the CUDA toolkit (cuda_7.5.18_linux.run) and installed them by hand. Now I have CUDA support in MATLAB as well as being able to launch other graphical programs.

get the CUDA 8.0 package from nvidia https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-release-candidate-download This packages up all the cuda libs and matches them with drivers.

You should install the proper display drivers. Enter in System Configuration -> Software and updates, in the Additional drivers tab you should see a list with some Intel-GPU drivers (these used to be privatives). Choose the most recent one and apply changes. Restart and you should be able to choose your screen resolution.

From Intel website for Graphics Installer 1.4.0 This release of the Graphics Installer is targeted at Ubuntu 15.10 or Fedora 23.

You are having this problem because your X configuration is trying to load the nvidia driver which is then looking for a compatible nvidia device. Such a device does not exist in the guest environment instead a VMware virtual graphics device is presented instead and thus the nvidia driver is not the correct driver in the guest OS. The correct driver for the ...

You might be able to force it to use AMD with open source drivers, but you're going to have worse performance than you will just using Intel. The AMD open source drivers have no support for newer OpenGL (or CL, can't remember) versions, which cripples some video playback and kills any slightly advanced graphical applications. I think it might even kill most ...

There is a compiled driver that already supports GTX 1070, which is 367. I didn't know about the nomodeset command,so what I did is just use my integrated graphics to boot up into Ubuntu and install the latest driver that supports GTX 1070 (which is 367) from the graphics-driver PPA. Do not install the latest driver from the Nvidia's website because it won'...

I have found some evidence that your processor is affected by the c-state bug which causes total freezes when the CPU tries to enter an unsupported sleep state.

Since there are no longer support for fglrx driver in Ubuntu 16.04, so it seems the built in radeon driver is the only way to solve this problem. First, you have to confirm that your ATI Radeon graphics card is supported by Xorg driver by typing man radeon in 16.04 terminal. Here is mine: R100 Radeon 7200 RV100 Radeon 7000(VE), M6, RN50/ES1000 ...
