This affected me too. Finally after weeks of frustration I found the solution posted in a Launchpad bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/1382462).

I tried the new "edition" of your suggestion and it work nicely! Looks great. But I'm trying to make it work in the script and it seems to be difficult...

Maybe you have the knowhow to fix this. I've tested my refitted script but I'm struggling with 2 variables. I need to set GPU number in "str" and the temperature in "newstr". It seems to go just fine with the first string and "grep" is working, but when it comes to the second it halts. I've been counting the spaces 101 times. Do you know if this is the ...

I found that editing the /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf to match your installed driver. Your file should look like this for your current configuration.

You can make a clear set up only through making a full-fledged Ubuntu installation by Ubiquity, as the main Ubuntu graphical installer instead of "useless" Wubi, an ex-friendly software aiming to be used by particularly Windows XP and other old-system users.

NVIDIA works perfectly in 15.04, I no longer get any shut down issues, and I can easily switch between Intel and Nvidia.

Try with a terminal. Open terminal, and run the following commands: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update Then install the driver: sudo apt-get install nvidia-337 Change 337 to any version you want - I'd recommend 304, 331 or 349. I'm using 349. Source

I had virtually the same problem on the same system: Ubuntu 14.04 with GTX 970. I had installed the NVIDIA drivers from the website.

After multiple search attempts on the internet and after LOTS of trial and error, I can safely conclude that the main problem is the PPA xorg-edgers. If you have similar problems, you should remove whatever drivers you have from xorg-edgers and then ppa-purge it. If you don't know how to do it, then here's how. Install ppa-purge by... sudo apt-get install ...

You could maybe try this instead, and it might work fine, and enter this command in the terminal: sudo apt-get remove nvidia-311-updates and it might work fine this way.

My first thought would be that you are not using NVIDIA's drive rs, as Ubuntu (and Chalet) use the Nouveau open-source drivers by default. If you go here you can find out exactly what features of Nvidia cards are supported by Nouveau (your card is in the farthest column to the right, designation NV110). Your best bet, whenever facing problems of this ...

I had the same problem for a while with my GTX 970 and I fixed it by using the boot-repair. First you need to somehow get the ubuntu to boot in recovery mode.

Are your monitors connected to the graphics card? If yes, then you have to install the driver for you graphics card. Once you install it, it will detect your other monitors.

I also have a Nivida Geforce 7600 GS on a machine used infrequently. It can boot to the login screen which looks OK, but is almost unresponsive bringing up a desktop. Even for a guest login.

I have seen similar problems with 14.04. They seemed to be fixed in 14.10, and even better in 15.04 (this latter, specifically regarding nVidia cards). So upgrading will probably be worth a try. The underlying problem seems to be a bug within Unity itself. I have not encountered anything like it on XFCE, KDE or Cinnamon. If you do not wish to install a ...

All you really need to do is to remove the newline from all lines starting with GPU. You could use this perl one liner which removes newlines from lines whose first three characters are GPU: $ nvidia-smi -q -d temperature | grep GPU | perl -pe '/^GPU/ && s/\n//' | grep ^GPU GPU 0000:01:00.0 GPU Current Temp : 57 C GPU 0000:02:00.0 ...

awk is a great all-purpose tool perfect for this. For each input line it executes all commands which match. Here I pipe the output from two of your commands into awk. When it matches the lines beginning GPU 0: it splits the line into 2 parts at the "(" character and saves the first part (x[1]) in an array indexed by the gpu number, got from field 2 ($2: ...

So after 1,5 years of testing it seems I've finally solved this problem. All it took was sheding some light into the issue. Literally. This is what I was only able to see after putting some bright, direct light into my PCIe slot: I'm guessing this happened when I first inserted my video card into that slot. The card may have pushed a couple of pins ...

I don't know how to do it "automatically", per se, but you could just try putting a shellscript on your desktop and then running it every time you close whatever program you're using. Not necessarily what you're looking for, but a temporary, less tedious solution, at least.

You have installed Nvidia drivers from xorg-edgers ppa, and you have kernel 3.13. It may not be well. I suggest removing xorg-edgers ppa and installing same driver from Ubuntu repository.

In the first case, the game complains about the absence of libtcmalloc_minimal.so.4 library. Probably, Steam or the game have their version of this lib inside the directory.

The problem only arose because I had a custom Compiz profile in the old system and after the upgrade it got silently deleted so Unity could not find it and just crashed with no indication as of the source of the failure. Importing my settings to a profile under the old name using ccsm solved the issue. And this is year 2015.
