Hi :) I've recently bought a new PC with Palit GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Dual video card. Unfortunately, it seems like Ubuntu has some problems with it. When I type "sudo lshw -C display", I get this message:
*-display UNCLAIMED description: VGA compatible controller product: NVIDIA Corporation vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 version: a1 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress vga_controller cap_list configuration: latency=0 resources: memory:f6000000-f6ffffff memory:e0000000-efffffff memory:f0000000-f1ffffff ioport:e000(size=128) memory:f7000000-f707ffff *-display description: VGA compatible controller product: Sky Lake Integrated Graphics vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0 version: 06 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pciexpress msi pm vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=i915_bpo latency=0 resources: irq:124 memory:f5000000-f5ffffff memory:d0000000-dfffffff ioport:f000(size=64)
and when I go to "Additional drivers", I get this: Unknown: Unknown. The device is using an alternative driver.
ubuntu-drivers devices ... ubuntu-drivers devices | grep recommended ... sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-* ... sudo ubuntu-drivers devices ... sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall ... ubuntu-drivers devices ... sudo apt-add-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa ... ubuntu-drivers devicesjust as they said in the post You linked to, but that didn't change anything (by anything, I mean I still get the same messages as I described in the question). Sorry, I'm a linux newbie.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppaand
sudo apt-get install nvidia-367...and now nothing works. System boots normally, but when the login screen shoul appear, everything goes black and monitor goes into sleep mode... I've discovered that using ctrl+alt+f1 brings up terminal, but that's all. I think that nothing graphics-related works...
