I am trying to install an Nvidia driver for the GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card I have but I am running into some issues in the process. Running Ubuntu 14.04. Essentially, I have followed the instruction here:
I looked up the correct driver to use (nvidia-352) and ran
sudo apt-get install nvidia-352
but when I verify the installation using
lspci -vnn | grep -i VGA -A 12
Kernal driver in use: nouveau
Kernal driver in use: nvidia
Running the following command confirms that the nouveau drivers are being blacklisted:
grep 'nouveau' /etc/modprobe.d/* | grep nvidia /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-352_hybrid.conf:blacklist nouveau /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-352_hybrid.conf:blacklist lbm-nouveau /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-352_hybrid.conf:alias nouveau off /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-352_hybrid.conf:alias lbm-nouveau off /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf:blacklist nouveau /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf:blacklist lbm-nouveau /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf:alias nouveau off /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf:alias lbm-nouveau off
I assume that this would explain why I get thrown into low graphics mode upon restart because the graphics card is trying to use a driver that is blacklisted.
I have also found that running the command
lsmod | grep nvidia returns nothing.
Essentially my question is how do I switch the 'kernel driver in use' from nouveau to nvidia?
