I could solved. I follow the advice from this answer: http://askubuntu.com/a/367329/483417 What I did was: sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-all sudo do-release-upgrade -m desktop I waited for the upgrade ends and restarted the computer. After that, Kubuntu started with no problems. The graphics were configured too. I think that is because I have a ...

Temporary Solution This solution will last as long as the current session. Once you turn off the computer, this modification is erased. Add scroll lock as a modifying key by commanding xmodmap -e "add mod3 = Scroll_Lock" Less Temporary Solution This solution will persist across sessions, but once you upgrade the operating system, this modification is ...

I got a similar message with an Asus EEE 900 Rebooted to GRUB and selected "Advanced options for Ubuntu". Selected "recovery mode". Selected "Resume normal boot". Click through the warning about graphics drivers. Boots fine to desktop.

I have multiple monitors configured. In Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus), using Displays (unity-control-center), only Resolutions 1024x768 and 800x600 were available in the pulldown menu for my second display which is DVI output (DVI-0 Radeon driver). So I configured a modified version of the lightdmxrandr.sh based on the solution described above. My verion of ...

I've had the same problem, which I was able to solve following instructions from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2275526: This is a problem with steam and ubuntu 15.04. Steam bundles old libs and are colliding with mesa drivers, that is also why closed drivers aren't seeing this problem. There is a open bug in steam github the ...

QUICK AND DIRTY WORK AROUND Disclaimer: I've found this "solution" by trials and errors, therefore I can't guarantee it's safe. Use it at your own risk. Background: when Parallels Tools is installed it copies under /usr/lib/compiz/ a bunch of files with this pattern libprlcompiz_*_*_*_*.so (with digits instead of *). Those are unity plugins and, as it ...

Oke not really the best solution out there but changing the systemd start job to chmod /dev/tty7 before launching kodi seems to "fix" it.

Thanks to the collective effort of the community, I have managed to get it working. First, get to a Terminal (by pressing ctrl-alt-f1 if you can't log in, or through recovery mode). Install nVidia drivers version 364 (package nvidia-364). sudo apt-get install nvidia-364 If the package is not found, add the ppa that contains it: sudo add-apt-repository ...

How do I get my desktop back? By pressing ctrl-alt-f1 from the login screen, you can go to a commandline. Login using your username and password. From this commandline, you can uninstall the nvidia drivers by running the following commands: sudo apt remove nvidia-361 sudo apt autoremove Note that the specific version of nvidia might be different. You can ...

It seems that is a problem with the 361 driver. Installing older ones does not solve the problem, but installing the 364 via ppa solved the problem. If you need info on how to add the ppa you can follow this link.

I have the same problem. Running Ubuntu 16.04. Intel HD4600 and Nvidia 765M. Tried all the suggestions above. It worked when installing using terminal, but if I use multiple monitors it bugs out and I end up in a boot loop. I've read someone suggesting that the beta driver 364xx works.

I have a GTX980 and was not able to login after upgrade to 16.04 (from 15.10). After getting rid of nvidia (sudo apt-get purge nvidia*) login worked again, but resolution was limitted to 800x600. For me following steps then solved all problems: Reinstall nvidia (sudo apt-get install nvidia-361) Reboot, goto BIOS and disable Secure Boot Thanks biff for ...

I had some problems with Nvidia and 16.04 - finally got it working. on an nvidia gtx980m (asus G752 gaming laptop) - I suggest making sure you try to install from command line, and not simply enabling the proprietary drivers from the gui...(read on) I am not getting the boot loop described, but I was getting low res (800x600) and it would not work at all - ...

Sound support was disabled in the BIOS of the machine for me. Hence, no driver worked. This happened because I loaded the failsafe settings in the bios while trying to get the machine to boot via floppy, CD and USB. However, once I loaded the optimized defaults in the BIOS settings, everything worked fine.

The behaviour you describe (opening the window on the current screen) should be the default behaviour, On my 14.04 it is like that. Due to minor incompatibilities with some graphics driver/GPU combinations, "peculiarities" might occur in some cases. If there is no "clean" option available (fix), you can use the workaround below. It exists of a background ...

Lubuntu 15.x: At the lightdm-greeter blackscreen, I switched to a virtual terminal (Alt2), logged in, then found the pid of lightdm-greeter with top -b -n 1 | grep 'lightdm', then I tried sudo kill -s SIGHUP [pid], then used top again to see if the greeter was still running, then tried sudo kill -s SIGTERM and used top again and the greeter was not running. ...

To get rid of these and other hard-ware related troubles,test the latest, relatively stable liveCD - OP found out that the latest 16.04LTS (close to release candidate, kernel freeze today) not only fixes the graphics issue, but also other issues (touchpad). After the test is successful, the usual way for existing systems is update-manager -d to get the most ...

Turns out the answer was simply installing a 16.04 LTS daily instead of 14.04.4 LTS, as suggested by @emk2203 in the OP comments! After booting up the 16.04 LTS, everything went fairly smoothly compared to my stint on 14.04 LTS.

You probably did not install nvidia-prime for your hybrid graphics. Run in terminal sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 nvidia-prime If there are any errors, post output to your question. Then reboot. You can also install a newer driver from a PPA sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-361 ...

I believe you have to blacklist the nouveau drivers first if you want to use Nvidia's proprietary drivers. Try this and see if it works for you: http://www.allaboutlinux.eu/remove-nouveau-and-install-nvidia-driver-in-ubuntu-15-04/

I had same problem today on Lenovo P50. The issue was that I switching to nvidia driver from stock open source driver. The display would go black when I boot and login gets stuck in loop when I go to recovery mode. When doing Ctrl+Alt+F1 and trying to startx I saw errors such as screen not found. The solution was simply to roll back to stock drives using ...

I do get this as well from time to time. Using the console not to reboot, but to find out what is happening revealed that it was a problem with compiz for me. The solution was to kill compiz and then return to the graphical console. Compiz would be restarted and everything was back to normal. To kill compiz via the console, type the following on the ...

Capturing the mouse I'm guessing you were missing some XCB dependencies so ffmpeg was unable to capture the mouse. You'll need a new ffmpeg. If you want to compile make sure to install the XCB dependencies: libxcb1-dev libxcb-shm0-dev libxcb-xfixes0-dev. See FFmpeg Wiki: Ubuntu Compile Guide for more details. Alternatively, you could probably use mc3man's ...

I have had the same issue with one of my monitors. It would not pull the EDID from the monitor at all. I had to manually add the refresh and sync info to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. One way that I know of to get the HorizSync and VertRefresh for your monitor (HDTV) is to run the nvidia-xconfig. Don't run the application with your existing xorg.conf ...

I made some progress. Basically I looked at the dependencies of the cuda package in Synaptic and found it depended on nvidia-352 which sounded like it might have the actual driver. So I did the following user-friendly easy command: sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-352 This gives the following user-friendly error: ERROR: Cannot create report: ...
