The latest Ubuntu 14.04 LTS upgrade of 3 Nov 2016 destroys the graphics capabilities of some programs. The old versions were
and these worked just fine.
The new versions are:
These show some strange side effects on the graphics in the following programs:
- 0ad, shows the map, but no buildings, soldiers, trees or landscape features.
- totem player, plays the movie all black in a black window, sound is ok.
- possibly others I have not identified yet.
I can't find the nividia-*304.131 binaries, so I downgraded from 304.131-0ubuntu0.14.02.2 to 304.117.0ubuntu1 (trusty). 0ad and totem work again.
But I now have downgraded from nvidia-304.131, which was working fine, to nvidia-304.117. Any way to get nvidia-304.131 back again? and how would I do this?
