Thomas R's answer is right, but the desktop file did not work for 14.04.1 LTS 64bit. Here's what works for me: Edit file /usr/share/applications/skype.desktop Change the line Exec=env PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 skype %U to Exec=env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1 PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 skype %U Save file Here's my complete skype.desktop ...

/proc/ is a pseudo file system: when you read/write on any /proc/file you don't access a real file or real memory, but you call some specific kernel function (depending of the file) that acts as a file. It returns data if you read the file, set data if you write to the file. And if there is no write function defined for a specific file, writing to the file ...

Please refer to my web-blog to solve this issue: http://xuancong84.blogspot.sg/2015/03/installing-conflicting-packages-on.html I have just successfully installed both CUDA and Wine on my Ubuntu 14.04. And both of them are working. Basically, you need to use aptitude to exam each conflict carefully and modify the right entries in /var/lib/dpkg/status so ...

An alternative way is to cheat the Ubuntu package manager that CUDA is not installed while if fact it is installed. The steps are as follows: a. get the package list: dpkg --get-selections > anyfile b. edit anyfile to set nvidia-opencl-icd-340 as deinstalled, save the file c. set the package list: dpkg --set-selections < anyfile edit the ...

Supposed you are installing something like CUDA, which means you need to purge existing NVIDA packages, get pre-install environment correct (very important), and install under tty1 mode. Have you read this? Also, read NVIDIA official document for getting started on Linux, it's about CUDA, but CUDA contains NVIDIA drivers first, so it should work. What you ...

Switch to terminal with Ctrl+Alt+F1 (or by blind-installing ssh server through apt-get and connecting from the laptop, or making a remote shell of nc and mkfifo). Then use some guide to reinstall nvidia or mesa drivers.

That could be your hard drive. Run the following command to prevent unnecessary spin ups and downs which can lead to undue wear to the drive: sudo hdparm -B 254 /dev/sda Then run the following commands to make the changes permanent: echo "/dev/sda* {" | sudo tee -a /etc/hdparm.conf echo " apm = 254" | sudo tee -a /etc/hdparm.conf echo " apm_battery = ...

Run this command: apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic It will install the x32 Utopic Mesa GLX binaries steam needs to run. Steam is a x32 architecture, and some x64 machines do not have this lib.

It looks to me as if your X installation is running at too low of a resolution. Try this for diagnostics (and maybe to fix it): Open System Settings. Select Displays. Look at the value next to Resolution. Ideally, it will match the maximum resolution of your monitor. If it is, then something else is the cause; but if it's ridiculously low, that confirms my ...

Current GNOME integration with CUDA driver seems to have problems (v 346.46). I had a problem with login session init, but managed to solve it by installing lxde and removing gnome and ubuntu-desktop as described here: caffe installation problems

Firstly, sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia* Enable the Universe and Multiverse repositories - you need to do this to allow the bumblebee and nvidia packages respectively to be installed. Then: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia primus linux-headers-generic sudo reboot ...

I installed Nvidia driver in Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10 It installed without problems but i experience some kind of bugg. My background became pixelated and some webpages are pixelated such as chrome.google.com and some pictures too. I installed the latest driver which i downloaded from Nvidia website and i also installed it from additional drivers to see if it ...

If it is a text file, you might be able to place it under quotes like so: sudo "nano /proc/device-tree" Or if that doesn't work, try first sudo -i and then nano /proc/device-tree/

You’ll need rootly powers use sudo for that. Try this: you can use gdb (GNU Debugger) running as root to manipulate contents of memory. These may interest you: http://sourceware.org/gdb/current/onlinedocs/gdb/ http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3305164/how-to-modify-memory-contents-using-gdb

I have had similar issues in the past and have never been completely able to figure out. It also appears that some fixes don't work for others. The only was I have ever been able to get the newer drivers to work on my own system is by removing nvidia-prime and installing bumblebee to control the switching from Intel to NVIDIA.

Xorg-edgers not always guarantee what you expect. You might have to remove it. Do the following: sudo add-apt-repository remove ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa or with ppa-purge (it has to be installed) sudo ppa-purge ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa if you can't get to desktop or tty terminal see the link below how to drop to root shell. And after that other solution is ...

It's much better to install either using apt-get or through the drivers menu, as these will update and also re-compile when you get a new kernel version (which your downloaded one will not)

If you installed it/are going to install it from their website, no. Because you manually installed the drivers there isn't any way, unless that functionality is programmed into the driver (which I believe it isn't.) As for the worthwhile-ness of updating your drivers, that's normally a good idea. You get bug fixes and usually better performance. However, ...

Generally instead of stopping the application on overheating, the system will perform an emergency shut down, so I would say that heat is probably not the cause of this particular crash. The game wasn't released that long ago, so it isn't unreasonable for there to be a couple of problems that haven't been ironed out yet. Evidence of Emergency Shutdown: on ...

install a proprietary driver Since you are gaming this is the first thing you should do. You need to enable non-free sources so: Open Ubuntu Software Center go to Edit -> Software Sources Enable the "Proprietary drivers for devices (restricted)" option. Close the Software center run sudo apt-get update to make sure things are up to date go to your systems ...

I'm not entirely sure about the reasons, but currently (with the fully updated packages), the issue is gone. It was most likely a bug in one of the packages (perhaps some incompatibility related to the third party drivers). If anyone is still having the problem, just try updating all the packages.

Ctrl altf1 brought me to the terminal as ctrl alt f11 did, however now I AM able to use the keyboard. I'd like to add that I am very new to Linux and coding in general, so I apologize for my ignorance.

Found out from experience that the Dell Precision Tower 7910 must use ONLY the specially tweaked versions of Ubuntu 12 or RedHat 7 to achieve max performance. They are available from Dell and may have come on your system initially. You have to contact Dell to obtain Ubuntu, not sure about RedHat 7. If you load up the regular version of Centos 7 like I ...

After several trials I finally found the solution. Installation of CUDA is a pain, for which keeps corrupting my system configuration that I have no way to revert. The solution for the installation must be done in tty1 (the command line) mode, because it needs to kill GUI service before installing NVIDIA drivers, or it will refuse to work. And we need .run ...

You're suffering from the xorg bug 1405696 of the NVIDIA driver version 346. You can watch the status of the bug until it changes to Fix committed to use 346. Meanwhile you should stick with 340 by running sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install nvidia-340. In your case you might be obliged to type it blindly to try to install the driver in a ...

I had a similar problem with 3d rendering support (It's required by unity to display the docker/title bar ). Are you still using the same driver from your previous release? If so might need a new driver for 14.04. Would you happen to be using a PCIe card atm that you can rotate to an integrated chipset via bios from? More likely to be supported until you ...

As per your Monitor's manual you need to hold the power button for 5 seconds and use the "auto adjust"... Low quality reviewers: another complex problem solved by a simple solution. ;-)

Which Ubuntu version? Ubuntu packages are generally recommended instead of direct from nvidia.com, so everything is coordinated and updates automatically. If you need a newer version than in standard repos, there are ppa packages available for that. I have not tried 14.04.2 or 14.10 yet, but 64-bit 14.04.1 live/install iso, graphics seemed to work fine for ...

Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to open the terminal. sudo service lightdm stop sudo killall Xorg Now install the graphics driver. I had to use the nvidia 340.29 driver that comes along with the CUDA run file.

Remove the Network Installer version with with conf files sudo dpkg --purge cuda-repo-ubuntu1404 without conf files sudo dpkg --remove cuda-repo-ubuntu1404 Install the Local Package Installer version with sudo dpkg --install cuda-repo-ubuntu1404-7-0-local_7.0-28_amd64.deb

I figured out what was going on. The nouveau driver uses the 346 proprietary driver binary. So essentially everytime the newer driver is released the Nouveau "driver" uses whatever the most recent one and repackages itself.

The release notes suggest to remove the nvidia-opencl-icd-* package and then try the upgrade again. See, http://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-toolkit-release-notes/index.html#axzz3VF4pSfRr under known issues.

first of all, i had csgo on my lappy running on win7 64bit, 4gb ram and i used to get around 60fps. So i think the problem here is with linux. Secondly linux is not really for gaming, you should have side loaded it with your windows if you are a gamer. Now coming to your solution, try changing the windows compability layer software/package you are using. Try ...

Go into your BIOS settings and disable the iGPU. If the hardware cannot be found, no modules will be loaded except the discrete GPU, resulting in the GPU to be used for everything! Low quality reviewers: That's it! ;-)

As per this answer the automatic updates doesn't even know that the cuda 6.5 is installed nor any of its dependencies that were installed with it, so you are safe tu run an upgrade. That being said, nothing is 100% certain, therefore take a full system back-up of your PC (you're definitely user type 4) and then proceed with the upgrade. If the upgrade ...

You could try running: nvidia-settings And under the PRIME Profiles tab on the left of the Nvidia settings window switch to your Intel GPU instead of Nvidia GPU. This will turn off the graphics card and help with cooling, but isn't going to help with cooling when you want to use the graphics card. Though you can change settings there to limit how much ...

If the above does still not work and you still have no sound over hdmi. After days of banging my head against a wall I discovered a section in the ALSA website about a bug in the 14.04 Kernel which sends sound to the the wrong hdmi ports or dummy devices. ALSA Site says; In Linux kernel 3.8-rc1, a regression was introduced which could cause GeForce ...

It looks like I dealt with that problem. If anyone experiences this stutters, here is what I did: 1. Turn off steam overlay and steam notifications in game. 2. Go to NVIDIA X Server Settings -> PowerMizer -> Set Preffered Mode to "Prefer Maximum Performance". After setting that I played 2 whole competitive games with no stutters.

Go to the ubuntu software center. Click "edit" and select "software sources". Now, click on the "additional drivers" tab. Here, you will be given the option for which driver to use.
