Last night I installed the Geforce 210 into my HP a6152n Desktop, in attempts to get Starcraft 2 just up and running (Not a HUGE gamer and I don't really need all of the bells and whistles).
The Computer booted fine while using the Nouveau driver by default, so I figured everything was good. I ran Starcraft 2 through PlayonLinux and Wine and the game boots correctly, the loading screen seems fine, until you get into the Battlenet login screen.
None of the text is readable! It's all white blocks, and it seems as if the background doesn't have all of the necessary graphics.
Bare with me, I'm a week new to Ubuntu.
So I start trying all of the "experimental" and proprietary driver included in Additional Drivers and none of them work. They all break Unity and the startup splash screen. The splash screen looks like it's from DOS, and When the computer boots it's resolution is way down, and there's no Dash or top bar for me to do anything.
Any advice is appreciated.
