I just found out when I go to advanced options there are three different kernels: 3.16.0-37 3.16.0-34 3.16.0-30 I tried all of them and only the second option works, still I don't know why :)

The Dell-provided USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet adapter uses a Realtek chipset. When I updated to kernel 3.19, I had to fetch the latest r8152 driver from their site.

The OP managed to fix the problem themselves, as posted in the original question: Go to Nvidia X server settings; OpenGL Settings; and uncheck Sync to VBlank. Reboot, this fixed my mouse problem in Draftsight. -tfsron

For anyone out there who still is in this situation, I upgraded to Ubuntu 15.04 and it looks lots better. I still haven't set up full prime support, but I do have 1600x900 resolution again (couldn't get more than 1024x768 with 14.04 or 14.10.). --kevin

Long story short: The DEB file currently linked on the CUDA Toolkit 6.5 page is broken and after fixing becomes equivalent with the 7.0 one. More precisely, it seems somebody at Nvidia mixed up the file from production testing (containing but an internal network alias) with the one meant for release, which would have pointed to the actual public server. To ...

OK, so in the comments we've hashed out a lot of your issues. Windows XP is now accessible via Grub (probably due to update-grub, but we're not entirely sure. I believe we've successfully figured out the "blank screen" issue at login by installing the proper Nvidia drivers. However, it appears you have one final issue with an external monitor -- or maybe ...

I had the same problem before in ubuntu. Try this command: gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.cursor active false and reboot your computer.

I was having problems getting the correct symlink to point at the nVidia driver and I found another way that works for me. It is outlined here. And it lists on how to install the nVidia driver via PPA which is avaliable for 349.16, the latest version. First uninstall any nVidia drivers currently installed by opening a terminal window (Ctrl + ALT + T) and ...

This problem is caused by a wrong way of installing Nvidia drivers. You probably downloaded a .run file form Nvidia site. In this case the driver is not properly installed and will need to be re-installed every time you update kernel. The correct way of installing Nvidia drivers in Ubuntu is to go to System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional ...

Download the relevant run file from Nvidia. Run with --kernel-module-only flag.

Not allowed to comment yet so I'll leave this as an answer. I am also having this problem and it appears to be down to the nvidia drivers. If I completely remove them my laptop is as good as dead - I'm able to login but painfully it's painfully slow. It appears we're not the only ones, I've got my hopes pinned on this question being answered Ubuntu 15.04 ...

I did receive this "ACPI PCC probe failed; starting version 219" error as soon as I received the latest version of Ubuntu (15.04) with the generic kernel 3.19. ???. As soon as I rebooted my laptop the screen went blank (or a black screen) and the laptop just "hung" and would not proceed further. The only option for me was to power off and then power on.

For Ubuntu 14.04 nvidia-modprobe messed up my system. But I realized that the nvidia-331-uvm is not activated from the start (god knows why). So let's activate it: $ sudo modprobe nvidia-331-uvm $ sudo mknod -m 666 /dev/nvidia-uvm c 249 0 And then: $ sudo clinfo Then you'll be able to use opencl even as a non-root user. Why it's like this is explained ...

Please refer to ASK UBUNTU Question How to set up nVidia Optimus/Bumblebee in 14.04 That will most likely solve your issue.

Skype relies on 32 bit libGL.so.1.On a 32-bit OS it will work without any problems.This problem is seen for those who uses the 64-bit Operating System.As I said before, skype relies on 32-bit libGL.so.1.But it first finds the 64 bit libGL.so.1 file and tries to use it for the rendering, which results in the above error : wrong ELF class.

I don't exactly know why its happening or how somehow the problem is solved. First of all, the nvidia-331-uvm is not activated from the start (god knows why). So let's activate it: $ sudo modprobe nvidia-331-uvm $ sudo mknod -m 666 /dev/nvidia-uvm c 249 0 Then if you do clinfo you'll have the same error about the ICD loader. Nonetheless, if you do it as ...

Based on what you have said in earlier communications on the Question. Nvidia 349 Seems to be working with your Card. You also intend to use Nvidia GPU only when needed. So I have a Solution for you. I have posted this to my blog a well and got a very positive response from people who used it. So I have compiled a little how to document like below The ...

The xorg-edgers PPA also works well. From what I understand, this is a PPA that posts the latest proprietary Nvidia drivers. To install, open a terminal and type: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update Now you should have drivers listed in the Additional Drivers tool. The only thing I don't get is, when you go to Additional ...

Slightly off-topic, but if you have AMD instead of nVidia: After updating 14.04 to 14.10 and then 15.04 I got caught in the login loop. After much poking around at problems with nVidia drivers, they were not much help. I have an HP Pavillion with AMD CPU & Drivers. Here were the simple steps that worked: ctrl-alt-F1 ; <-- to get a ...

OK,Lets understand the point number 2 you mentioned, You said that you had to pass nomodeset kernel parameter while Booting off of the USB. This would Indicate that the Graphics Card you have GTX750TI, Does not want to work well with the Open Source Nouveau Driver. So that is your First Problem. I would not Proceed with the Install if I had to use ...

I have been facing the same issue for quite some time. I had to reference many article online however I never got any help. So I wrote a blog post of my own and I got very positive response.

First off Yes, your graphics card, could possibly be using a wrong or corrupted driver that makes it render some GUI elements incorrectly. It's recommended that you reinstall the drivers. You should have begun the post with your specs, but never mind. I guess you're using a Nvidia card. Uninstalling The first thing you need to do is to uninstall the ...

Sadly, my experience is that: sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo apt-get install nvidia-current is not guaranteed to work. Sadly it also is true that kernel updates and xorg or other graphics driver updates often break the proprietary driver installation. I have come to use this scheme: 1. as updates are announced, check for the above type of packages. 2. ...

I think the problem is that current version of Nvidia drivers in Ubuntu does not support this card. You can try to install a newer version. Run in terminal. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-346 sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa Also it makes sense to upgrade kernel and graphical stack ...

This happens when you install Nvidia drivers using a .run file, downloaded from Nvidia site. This a wrong way to install drivers. After each kernel update you will have to install them again using cosole, because GUI won't start. Now you can fix it by going to console by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1. Then login there and run sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo apt-get ...

I found this (if you have NVidia and intel graphic cards): I think the following command should give you an indication of your active chip: $ glxinfo|egrep "OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer*" OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Mobile* If you switched to NVidia card: $ optirun ...

another way to do it is to add a command via Startup Application GUI the command to run is: sh -c 'nvidia-settings --assign 0/CurrentMetaMode="VGA-0: nvidia-auto-select +0+0, LVDS-0: nvidia-auto-select +1920+0, HDMI-0: nvidia-auto-select +3840+0 {viewportout=1832x1030+44+24}"' I also removed ~/.config/monitors.xml worked for me - plain and simple

I think the problem is with the NVidia driver and the use of OpenGL. When you experience the black screen login on to an other tty and try the following: - sudo vi ~/.config/kwinrc - Change Backend=OpenGL to Backend=XRender - then restart with kill -9 -1 You should now be able to login using Plasma. It is however very slow but you can sometimes switch back ...

The nvidia-304 drivers will work with Kubuntu 15.04 if you disable the Compositor in System Settings->Display and Monitor

It is not a good idea to install Nvidia drivers from .run files, downloaded from Nvidia site. This way they will not be registered properly by dkms and you will get black screen after first kernel update. Good way to install the driver is to run: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current Or go to System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers ...

I try a lot of version drivers NVIDIA 311, 303, 331 ... - and further i have a blank screen. But now i install 349 version and it works successfull(Ubuntu 14.04/15.04) So, for GeForce 635m at this moment stable driver version is 349.

Thank you to all who took the time to look and provide responses. I have been able to log back in again. I did the last section of the instructions that are linked in the reply to steeldriver. When I did it the first time I used the 340.65 driver. This time I used the newest 346.72 driver and that seemed to fix it for some reason. I have no idea why. Maybe ...

I am only familiar with Kubuntu so this may not help. At the login screen do not login. Do Control-Alt-F1. then login with your username and password.

I finally have this working in a repeatable way. I have the w540, ultra docking station and 3 displays (monitors are all the same brand). I have the DVI and VGA from the docking station, and then the VGA port on the laptop itself. The big change for me is that if I leave the lid open and then hit F7, it all works smoothly. If I close the lid it causes lag. ...

Much better way to install latest drivers for nvidia is to do it from ppa. In this case they will stay after kernel updates. Just run in terminal sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-346 sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa And you install the same driver a correct way.

I think xcalib might be able to adjust the black level. If it can, you'll have to enter the xcalib command into autostart to have it run every time you boot up.

These are options to install proprietary drivers. With this Nvidia card and if you are new to Ubuntu, I would no suggest installing any of proprietary Nvidia drivers. There is no guarantee that the system boots up normally after that. I know that nvidia-173 works well with this card, but I am not sure that even 304 will work. Now you use open source drivers. ...

nVidia 349 is in beta stage for Linux (according to geforce.com ). There might be a bug which is occurring your problem. nVidia 319 doesn't support GTX 760, the support for Linux came from nvidia-337. I'd recommend you to install it from Ubuntu's additional drivers. Perform the following steps: Open dash and search for Additional Drivers Open Additional ...

This might be just what you need: https://github.com/beidl/prime-indicator They say "Indicator applet for Ubuntu 14.04 laptop users with NVIDIA/Intel switchable graphics" but there is a good chance that it might also work for your version of Ubuntu.

It was not an issue with a graphics card. I checked and it supports 3 monitors at the same time. And Ubuntu DOES support this (14.04). In my case, BenQ did not automatically recognize which cable was on so I had to manually set that input is coming from HDMI. I now have image on all 3 monitors and all is working flawlessly.

I fixed my issue! After trying the commands you suggested to me (thanks by the way) I tried the command sudo nvidia-xconfig which backed up the existing xorg and created a new one, and I used startx to boot back up and it worked fine (albeit at 640x480) Thanks again
