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 ...

Actually you have a default graphic card. For use latest driver you need go to painel configuration and going to software and update --> aditional driver and choice latest proprietary driver. This resolve all probleme with my graphic card Good luck

You can install your driver via the package manager : Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and : Remove old nvidia packages : sudo apt-get purge nvidia* Find the driver versions available in the repositories : sudo apt-get update apt-cache search nvidia binary The output may look similar to : nvidia-340 - NVIDIA binary driver - version 340.96 nvidia-340-...

News: I was able to run from the live-pendrive and install by using the nomodeset param. I learned how here: Trying to install Ubuntu 14.04, monitor says mode unsupported/out of range Bsically, pressing the "e" key in the grub menu and adding that string after the words "quiet splash".

I had the same logs, and the solution given by Quentin worked for me (Ubuntu 16.04 on an MSI laptop) edit the file : "/etc/default/grub", and after 'quiet splash', add 'pci=nomsi' (inside quotes) (I had already added "nomodeset" in the past for another reason) save the file and run : sudo update-grub then restart

There is definitely a problem with the driver of the GTX 1070 on Ubuntu16.04. I install my GTX 1070 recently and it works perfect on win10. Then I setup a new Ubuntu16.04 as a second OS. At first, nothing went wrong during the setup process. But when the setup process finished, my desktop reboot into Ubuntu, the only thing I could see is the wallpaper ...

Just edit the file /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia to include the following screen-section to make bumblebee work: Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Device "DiscreteNvidia" EndSection (To open the file for editing, run sudo gedit /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia ) After a restart of bumblebee, it works properly.

You should install and use nvidia propreitary drivers, there's no need to use bumblebee for 16.04. First, open terminal and remove bumblebee: sudo apt-get remove bumblebee sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get update Then, add nvidia driver PPA. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt-get update Finally, install nvidia drivers of your ...

On ubuntu 16.04 ( I struggled with ubuntu while didn't want to install xubuntu) just set nouveau.modeset=0. Courtesy to this answer. set this parameter before quiet splash --- like nouveau.modeset=0 quiet splash ---

Find the nvidia management app. Type nvidia in the dash to find it. There you can choose which profile you want to be applied, weather performance mode (nvidia drivers will used) eco mode (intel drivers will be used)

The problem is that in Ubuntu 16.04 with UEFI and SecureBoot enabled unsigned kernel modules do not load. In your case nvidia module is not loaded. The module is not signed. That should be fixed as a bug. Disable SecureBoot and the problem should be fixed.

Thank you Mr. IRC Man. I installed Bumblebee, and it now works except for the brightness control (for some reason nvidia-xconfig wasn't installed).

So it turns out the discrepancy in temperature comes from the fact that the nvidia drivers in windows automatically switch between intel integrated graphics and the nvidia graphics card based on what the computer is running. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any way to do this in linux (bumblebee is a rough solution). However, the graphics device can ...

The way to override EDID defined configurations at xorg.conf is to add this line in the section "Device": Option "UseEdid" "False" So, it is still possible to set the native Display Resolution in Ubuntu by creating and customizing a configuration file for XOrg. Here's a step by step guide: 1) CREATE A NEW xorg.conf file to put in the configuration ...

I have the same laptop as well with 3 monitors (including the build-in) using the nouveau drivers, nvidia-361.41 that comes with ubuntu 16.04 does seems working pretty well especially with the mini display port.

I was able to solve this using something similar to the second example posted on the Arch Wiki for NVidia cards - TwinView. Each monitor is plugged into a separate graphics card and I've enabled SLI Mosaic mode. I've also forced the refresh rates to 60 Hz for the moment, but may uncomment this and use a range to see if that works. I created a new file in /...

It seems that the problem behind this is the proprietary Nvidia drivers , try again a new installation only this time go to Nvidia page and download from them the latest drivers and install them. If this doesn't work ether i am afraid that you have to use the free-open-source drives (which is not a bad thing to do btw) since we can't make any changes to the ...

I have the same problem having the NVIDIA GTX 1070. I could start the installation adding modeset before running it and ubuntu 16.04 is installing now. I hope that I can normally start ubuntu after the installation.

This is NVIDIA's driver issue and about its development. It was long unsolved in NVIDIA's side. The driver NVidia-367 driver should fix the issue 24.6.2016. Qi's answer is mostly a reproduction of my body, and cannot be rewarded.

Give This a shot. LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' steam Hope it helps. Steam has its own built in Runtime Library. You can find more information on it Arch Wiki Ironically this works with Ubuntu as well.

You display adapter (nvidia) seems not receiving the DDC/CI data from the new screen. As: I can see from it LG 25UM65-P Specification Sheet it should support that. (Anyway any modern monitor should have this) You have tried two digital cables DVI-D and HDMI without success. So for solution: It could be that DDC/CI sending feature is disabled in the ...

I solved this issue a different way. I installed 16.04 on a very old computer. I installed the Nvidia legacy driver, and got the blank screen. I installed Lubuntu to use the LXDE desktop. That is working very well for me. sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

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 ...

Try this first: Go to settings -> software updates -> additional drivers. Wait while Ubuntu searches for compatible drivers. If NVIDIA 361.45.11 is available then select it and click the Apply Changes button. If it is not available, use the newest compatible NVIDIA driver that is listed. Alternatively, try this: Use the steps shown on the website below ...

I had the same issue, until I uninstalled mesa-vulkan-drivers. DOTA2 then immediately started with the -vulkan option. Also vulkaninfo gives me a lot more output now, without the error.

I found the solution. On a Dell Precision 3620, you have to go into the BIOS and disable Secure Boot. After that, you are able to use the nVidia drivers.

Go to the file manager of your system and and navigate to the Desktop folder, then drag-n'-drop the icons from there onto your actual desktop.

OK, I figured it out. First try creating an xorg config using the following command: sudo nvidia-xconfig this will create a new xorg config at /etc/X11/xorg.conf. then change the device section to look something like below: Section "Device" Identifier "Device1" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" BusID ...

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.

It seems that, you have exported wrong path. So, On terminal type: sudo ldconfig /usr/local/cuda/lib64 ldconfig creates the necessary links and cache to the most recent shared libraries found in the directories specified on the command line If this don't work try: export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/cuda/bin This will set environmental path.

I don't have a similar setup, but would urge You to try again. Proprietary nvidia drivers are released quite regularly, so there is a good chance that the Your original issue may have been fixed by now. Link to most recently released nvidia driver If simply using the "Try Ubuntu" option on a Live CD/USB does not work (using the bundled open source nouveau ...

I've had problems installing Ubuntu 16.04, usually because the USB or CD hasn't been fully wiped. Try using gparted to fully wipe the partition of the USB or CD, Or Unetbootin to create another startup disk. This has worked for me so hopefully it will work for you.

I would try 1) installing while selecting each of the options under F6 Other Options. 2)If no luck, I would guess there is an issue with your hardware or BIOS configuration. That boot screen is not the OS. Try selecting Live Mode (Try Ubuntu without installing). I bet you get the same blank screen but if you get in try installing from there. I had the ...

Solved, unfortunately, by a complete fresh install. But I had some trouble with gnome environment and ended up giving it up. So be aware. Thank you.

The slowness you encounter is probably linked to the few RAM you have on your PC. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements states that From experience, we all know that it is recommended to have 2048 MiB RAM to properly run a day to day Ubuntu. So as already suggested, you should try changing to lightweigth distros. My ...

Solved, but kudos to Thanos and Joe. Not the ideal solution, as I will have to set everything up again and backup data from ext HD. However, it did fix the problem. Firstly, I performed a clean install of Ubuntu, effectively wiping the HD. Next I went back to the original help file at 'How to geek'. This time, however, I did not mess with the driver ...

If this is solely about good news, since this is Ubuntu we're talking about a clean install while keeping all your files is possible (though I would still recommend backing up your data before a clean install). To do this, boot up the computer using an Ubuntu Live CD (or USB) but don't install anything. Instead open up the folder manager and your partition ...

There is the option to try reinstalling Ubuntu all over again. From the comments & answers there are a number of things that are going wrong.

I worked around the same issues by chainloading GRUB2 from rEFInd: Remove grub-efi and install grub-pc and gdisk. Using gdisk, create a hybrid MBR ("recovery and transformation options" -> "make hybrid mbr"). When prompted to set the bootable flag of your Linux partition, select Y. Install GRUB2 into the hybrid MBR: grub-install --force /dev/sdX Now ...
