You can not kill or skip nouveau because it is part an integral part of linux kernel, part a module of X server. It goes in separate package but removing it is a really bad idea. You can blacklist nouveau module but this will likely lead to your GUI not booting at all. You should ask a new question with proper details on the problem, the community will solve ...

it's you from the future. Here's how I fixed it: I didn't! I re-downloaded the 15.04 image from the Ubuntu website and created a startup "disk" on a USB thumb drive. Today it worked, wehereas it didn't last night :( Perhaps Canonical fixed their image... So I booted from the thumb drive and removed my existing 15.04 and installed a fresh copy! Sure I ...

For everyone stuck at ACPI-PPC probe failed and cant even get past that, I have another solution. This is often a result after installing the 340 drivers. To fix that do the following: Grab a ubuntu live cd and boot from it as *try ubuntu* then open the terminal inside it and make yourself root with: sudo -i then make sure you mount your disk with ubuntu ...

Have same message and similar problem but... My ASUS G51J does not get stuck on this. I can log in and work with 15.04. So in my case DVI connection should have no bearing on this. I did have login loop issue but purge nvidia-* without anything else lead me to successful login in 640/480 mode. Then in software & update under additional drivers I did ...

I solved my problem! First I removed the existing NOUVEAU. With sudo nvidia-xconfig I create a new xorg.conf After that I added the DPI line. Section "Monitor" Identifier "Monitor0" VendorName "Unknown" ModelName "Unknown" HorizSync 28.0 - 33.0 VertRefresh 43.0 - 72.0 Option "DPMS" Option ...

I had exactly the same problem on my notebook with hybrid graphics intel/nvidia. In my case it must have got something to do with the open source driver nouveau. System Settings - Details - Graphics -> the gallium driver was listed instead of intel. That seemed to be the reason why I could not get nvidia and nvidia-prime to work. After another clean ...

It is recomended to purge before installing new drivers. For example, for a 343: sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia* sudo service lightdm stop sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-343 sudo service lightdm start sudo reboot You are not explicit on this, so I am just checking. If you do not come up ...

You're not going to upgrade the graphic card of a laptop, unless you find a motherboard with the graphic card you need that fits the case. This may happen only between products of the same vendor and of the same product line, because usually laptops motherboard are custom built for the specific product / product line. So you should look at motherboards (not ...

I had a similar issue where the normal boot sequence got into a repeated failure pattern like your posted video shows. To be sure you can look at the log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log. In my case, I was able to boot into recovery mode, drop to a root shell, then install a different nvidia driver. In my case, nvidia-340 was installed after the upgrade to 15.04, ...

This is the result of the drivers. For some reason Ubuntu 15.04 seems to have an issue with nvidia drivers. Here is my solution, tough its more like a "workaround" ACPI PPC Probe failed. Starting version 219 NVIDIA

I seemed to have fixed it but I still am not very satisfied since I had to uninstall the nvidia-346 drivers. I hope 15.04 will fix this issue. Else all works again. Thanks to Tim for helping me as much as he could. My Solution: First I changed the cables from DVI dual-link to DVI. The dvi cable must be connected to the motherboard. Then I could finally ...

I was able to fix this after reading the bug report @Mondane mentioned and several other troubleshooting articles on recovery mode. Boot into GRUB menu (pressing shift while starting). Choose recovery mode. Enable networking. Drop to root shell prompt. ifconfig eth0 and dhclient eth0 to get (Probably unnecessary) I had a some networking issues that were ...

I'm presuming you are using AMD64 :) You just need to execute the driver installation available here: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/83686/en-us You can blacklist the nouveau driver, by adding # generated by nvidia-installer blacklist nouveau options nouveau modeset=0 into /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf, which reads ...

I managed to correct my Radeon going into recovery, within network mode, then install xserver-xorg-video-ati, maybe you can solve with: sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-nouveau xserver-xorg-core xserver-xorg

What does "optirun --verbose glxgears" return ? Edit : I had to change KernelDriver to fit the proper name of the module (I use nvidia-349 so I had to put nvidia-349 instead of nvidia). Once I dit it, I had to update the XorgModulePath to fit the proper paths to the libraries according to the version of your driver. For me it is : ...

The 'solution' for me is disabling the Intel integrated GPU. There are two ways to go about this: UEFI/BIOS Disable the Intel GPU in your UEFI/BIOS settings. How to go about this differs per motherboard. For an Asrock Z77 Pro4 it meant setting: Advanced > North Bridge Configuration > IGPU Multi-Monitor: Disabled On other motherboards it can ...

Try to run nvidia-xconfig after nvidia drivers installation. Then reboot.

Using legacy drivers worked. I was trying different things and noticed sudo apt-get install nvidia-current installs Nvidia 304.125 and not 331.113 drivers. So I did the install. After that, I was unable to switch graphics with Nvidia Prime. So I removed it sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove nvidia-prime and installed Bumblebee instead, as described ...

For me, booting Ubuntu in UEFI mode with the Nvidia drivers loaded, also always resulted in the well-known black screen when X was started. That was until yesterday! After running into some very promising info in another thread about installing Windows 7 in UEFI mode on a Mac. Folks over there struggled with Windows 7's required int 10h legacy support and ...

First I switched to a console (CTRL-ALT-F1). Then I removed all nvidia stuff with sudo apt-get autoremove --purge nvidia-* and reinstalled the nouveau driver using sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-nouveu then sudo reboot I know this is probably not what both of us want but it is still better than no desktop at all... My Setup ...

Same problem as this one : 12.04.3 can start only after press "resume" in rescue mode (every boot) - problem with Nvidia driver The answer works here too. Could someone explained to me what went wrong here ? What is KMS and why it was working in 14.04 and not in 15.04 ? Thanks

I managed to fix the problem by simply removing all the proprietary drivers and left the default generic one. Since I use my laptop just for working purposes it works like a charm.

You don't have to waste your time installing it from source. Those drivers are available (as most software is) directly from the Ubuntu repositories precompiled and optimized for your version of Ubuntu. You can log into a text session at any time by pressing CTRL + ALT + F2 or you can use F1, F3, F4 whatever. Sign in with your username and password and ...

Through trial and error, I managed to fix this on my own, although I'm not sure what my exact steps were. I identified a total of 7 different nvidia-* packages, and decided to try each one, starting with the most recent, nvidia-349. I installed the xorg-edgers PPA, which contains more recent versions of these drivers, and manually checked to see if they ...

Install winetricks and run winetricks orm=backbuffer glsl=disable. This will fix the error mentioned.

Try running "sudo ubuntu-drivers devices". With older versions you need jockey-text. "sudo jockey-text -e xorg:nvidia_current"

You could try upgrading to the latest: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa -y sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current If this doesn't work can you send us the results of lspci -v | grep VGA so we know what card you have. Also what version of Ubuntu are you running?

While there is no way of not having graphics card problems, you can choose the newest, stable driver that can help. NVIDIA is listing version 349.16 as the newest driver, so that is the one that I would choose. After choosing that driver, use the nvidia-settings as a elevated user to configure higher settings. From a terminal window type in sudo ...

How can I make Ubuntu install without nouveaux and nvidia drivers? My suggestion for this one is a very advanced one. You could make a custom ubuntu image that will allow you to remove packages you don't want, and add packages that you do. Including changing grub before you make your image so it won't boot into a graphical mode. Here's the link to a guide ...

Post installation and removal nvidia, I noticed a strange(and a good one at that) behaviour. And that its that the GUI response in second monitor has become much improved. And I also noticed that the xorg.conf has a different setting, pasting it for your reference, jpvel@jpvel-M11xR3:~/Downloads$ sudo cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.04192015 Section ...

You're not the only one to experience this and unfortunately there is no fix. Users have reported this behaviour since 2010 and it has been an open bug since 2011. Having explored the various suggestions in those links, until this bug is fixed, I think the only way is to adjust the speed manually each time

Found this. It fixed the problem. I'm not exactly sure what it does though... sudo sed -i -e 's/#GRUB_TERMINAL/GRUB_TERMINAL/g' /etc/default/grub sudo update-grub

Look here to uninstall the NVIDIA driver you installed. Once that's done, reboot and login. Next, open Unity Dash and search for Additional Drivers. Let the list populate and choose the proprietary driver for your video card from here and click Apply Changes. That should install the NVIDIA driver for you.


0

It's usually better to use the proprietary driver, even with minor weirdness, since they are optimized for your card. Using the generic one can cause overheating and bad gaming/movie performance. You don't have to install the proprietary driver, but it will work better overall, especially since, in my experience, Ubuntu tends not to like NVIDIA and ...

If you do not wish to use bumblebee on your computer and you're alright with logging out and logging in again every time you want to switch GPUs, then you should install nvidia-prime: sudo apt-get install nvidia-prime nvidia-331-updates sudo reboot now sudo prime-select nvidia This will start the desktop using the NVIDIA GPU. Otherwise, if you want to ...

If you have overheating problems due to the nVidia card, I would: Disable the nVidia card in the BIOS or take it out of the PC Install 14.04.2 LTS (=Long Term Support) Install the nVidia modules. (a.k.a. "drivers") reboot and enable the card again.

Sometimes when you install Ubuntu some packages are not installed out of legal issues. This might fix sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras sudo apt-get install libdvdread4 And run , sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

I'm with Lenovo but I had similar problems like you, because of the Nvidia card and after the installation of bumblebee everything became normal. The bad thing with your laptop is the shutting down and I have two ideas which could give you time for installing bumblebee. First - Start the laptop and when you see the GRUB choose Ubuntu advanced options and ...

If you have nvidia prime installed just go to nvidia x server settings and choose it in prime profile (you need to relog to apply the changes). To install prime: First make sure bumblebee not installed! Or just remove it: sudo apt-get purge bumblebee* Install: sudo apt-get install nvidia-prime You can also install prime-indicator for easier ...

Don't worry about the lspci part. It's just because your /usr/share/misc/pci.ids* files are not up to date. Just run "update-pciids" as root. Before running update-pciids: $ lspci | grep GeForce $ Running update-pciids: $ sudo update-pciids Downloaded daily snapshot dated 2015-04-14 03:15:01 $ sudo lspci | grep GeForce 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ...

I just had that exact problem. I solved it by reinstalling unity at the command line. Hit Ctrl+Alt+F2, this will open a terminal on TTY2. Log in with your user name and password Then enter the command: sudo apt-get install unity After the install finished all was well for me

That sounds like a similar problem I had when I updated my kernel. The fix is described in detail here. The proposed solution - fixing the problem on my computer First, make a copy of your xorg.conf sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.BAK You may need also to install linux headers first. sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic Install ...

It is not clear whether you want to activate three monitors on the NVidia or do you want to use one monitor connected to the onboard graphics adapter. I have three monitors on GeForce 210. Two are connected to the NVidia and the third to onboard adapter. I was not able to set it up with NVidia drivers, but I did not spend to much time trying. I tried it ...

If everything works fine in the guest session, you can use the following very simple system to get a performant system again: Go to System Settings User Accounts + and add a user with the same name as your current user but with a 2 attached to the end.
