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. Here is mine: R100 Radeon 7200 RV100 Radeon 7000(VE), M6, RN50/ES1000 RS100 Radeon IGP320(M) RV200 ...

I (creator of this post) found the solution I need on my own! I will now explain the solution for anybody else who is in a similar situation and needs this help! SOLUTION: INSTALL THE NVIDIA DRIVER VIA THE RUNFILE PROVIDED AT http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html WITH THE FLAG "--no-opengl-files" !! This prevents not only the nvidia opengl files from ...

I know this is 2 years old, but I found a solution to this problem. You have to prevent your computer from even trying to load the radeon drivers. cd /lib/modules/3.13.0-24-generic/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/radeon mv radeon.ko radeon.ko.bak Note: this was on 14.04 Funny coincidence though, my laptop's also a DV6 6121tx. The 6770M served me well through 4 ...

Unfortunately it looks as if this PPA does not have much joy for Trusty Tahr: This ppa contains bits and pieces needed to test Vulkan BUT ONLY FOR XENIAL (and maybe 14.04 in the future). If you filter for Trusty Tahr only you will see that all that is there for Trusty is the 355 and 364 NVidia drivers.

I was struggling for days to make such setup. When I gave up, my machine boots to X only with just one screen (I have 2 connected). It is really running on VESA mode. $ sudo lshw -c display *-display UNCLAIMED description: VGA compatible controller product: 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller vendor: Intel Corporation ...

Searching for a solution to the audio issue finally provided a solution. There were two mplayer binaries on my system! /usr/local/bin/mplayer was the default. But when I tried /usr/bin/mplayer, everything worked. (Except DVBCut audio.) So, I got rid of /usr/local/bin/mplayer. sudo gzip /usr/local/bin/mplayer just in case I ever need it again.

Finally I managed to get it working. I didn't made any change in my Ubuntu configuration. I just changed parameters in my TV menu. To make it work, I change HDMI signal from RAW to EXPAND and DisplayPort 1.1a to 1.2. Now I can start Ubuntu without any monitor connected and left rotation is ok after switch it on and off. Can someone could explain me this ...

https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/intel-graphics-installer-linux-1.4.0 says that: This release of the Graphics Installer is targeted at Ubuntu 15.10 or Fedora 23. Ubuntu 16.04 is already current with the latest Q1 2016 Intel Graphics stack and therefore no Graphics Installer is needed. Therefore, you didn't need to run the installer and even ...

I know this thread is old, however if anyone else comes across this issue; the problem is most likely on the TV. On a Series 7 Samsung TV: Press the "MORE" button on the remote TOOLS > Picture Size Select "Screen Fit" Picture displays properly now.

I obtained the configuration that you want (I wanted it too ;) ): the intel GPU shall run the xserver and my monitor, which is connected to the onboard DP the nvidia GPU shall only be used for CUDA specific computation etc. full control over the nvidia gpu (real time, stats, temps fan speeds...) by using bumblebee. But before I go into some ...

That would seem to indicate that you are now using the open source noveau drivers for your NVidia card. You need to go to the Additional Drivers tab under Software & Updates in System Settings, and select the proprietary NVidia drivers to use.

Short answer probably not i'm afraid, or it wouldn't be a great experience. But obviously no harm in trying! only way you will find out.

My best answer is fire up a Live version and test it out, live is a bit slower anyway if you don't see too much of an issue then do the upgrade. That warning though is pretty pointed, and not many people come here with that type of warning, usually we see the more, coded warnings. so this is a personal decision on your part.

You system seems confused as to why you want don't want it to sleep when the lid is closed. You can try disabling the feature that suspends the laptop when closing the lid. The downside to this is that you'll have to suspend it manually. Open a terminal and edit the logind.conf file using gksudo gedit /etc/systemd/logind.conf Look for the line that says ...
