Running Skylake/Nvidia GTX 950 on a clean install. I'm no expert at all and I haven't got a clue what to do. I've tried various things but nothing works and the guides are often not clear enough for newbies - if anyone can help me step by step I'd be very grateful.

  • Does this work: askubuntu.com/questions/760934/… – TheWanderer Apr 23 '16 at 0:04
  • Yes it does! Many thanks. However I cannot see the launcher or menu bar in Ubuntu, I can only access things through the terminal. I haven't got a clue how to fix this. It is like they have vanished. – Tom Nadia Apr 23 '16 at 6:28
  • Do you have Unity (normal Ubuntu)? – TheWanderer Apr 23 '16 at 10:50
  • I had this same issue after upgrading from 15.10->16.04 on my system different GPU (GTX 760) but perhaps the same will help you as worked for me the solution in my case was the following command: sudo apt-get install --reinstall compiz – MttJocy Apr 24 '16 at 23:02
  • Same issue here, some weird things are happening to my screen. – Zlatan May 17 '16 at 20:58

You have to install the Nvidia driver.

You can install it from the Addition Drivers application. (Dash > Additional Drivers.)

Choose the one marked as "tested".

  • 17.04, I have this problem also. Definitely using the tested nvidia driver. Only happens when I put my laptop in the dock -- it's fine the rest of the time. – Lotus Jun 11 '17 at 13:03
