OpenSUSE Install :: Low Boot Resolution With Proprietary Nvidia Drivers

Aug 26, 2011

I've recently jump from the Ubuntu/Mint ship, and figured I've give a polished KDE distribution a shot. Of course I turned to OpenSuSE, and I love it so far. I've resisted KDE quite a lot since 4.x came out but it's really come along. Much better than the (in my opinion) monstrous disaster that Gnome has become.

Anyways, on to my problem: I've installed the proprietary Nvidia drivers via the one-click-install shown in the wiki, and that worked great. But now my resolution at boot - that is the boot/loading screen, not my desktop - is shown at a very low resolution instead of my native resolution, like it was with OpenSuSE's default open-source Nvidia driver, which I'm guessing is Nouveau. On Ubuntu, this was pretty easy to correct; all you had to do was edit /etc/default/grub and put your resolution there, and tinker with some other options so that instead of Plymouth trying to set its own, it just carries over Grub's specified resolution. But I can't seem to do that with OpenSuSE. For one, I don't see /etc/default/grub, and more than that, I don't think you guys use Plymouth. I could be wrong on that second point, though. So, how can I change the boot screen's resolution to my native resolution? I'm using the latest Stable release (11.4) and latest Nvidia drivers. Other than that, the install is new.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Screen Resolution With NVidia Proprietary Drivers?

Jul 26, 2010

I have an nVidia GeForce 7600GS with a dual monitor setup. A 19" Dell @ 1280x1024, and a 19" widescreen Acer @ 1440x900. The Dell is attached via DVI, and the resolution is detected properly, and set, but the Acer is connected via VGA, and so the native resolution is unkown to the nvidia control panel. It will only let me set the resolution up to 1024x768. I had it create the xorg.conf file, and i tried to edit it manually, changing its

Ubuntu :: Changed From The Proprietary Drivers To The Regular NVidia Drivers - Startup Logo Is Displayed At A Really Low Resolution

Jul 13, 2010

I installed Xubuntu the other night (completely wiped machine) and started doing all the updates on it. After a couple of reboots, I changed from the proprietary drivers, to the regular nVidia drivers. After doing this, the startup logo is displayed at a really low resolution. Is there a simple fix to change this and use the nVidia drivers as well?

Ubuntu :: Nvidia 9600gt : Resolution Stuck On 640x480 With Proprietary Drivers

Oct 20, 2010

I have a BIG issue with my fresh Maverick install : when I install proprietary drivers via the graphic utility, either one proposed, the screen resolution is then max in 640x480. But I have hardware acceleration and compiz effects !

I tried, I think, everything. Forcing the resolution in xorg, in monitors.xml, try the newest ones via the ppa, install an older (and used to be working I'm positive) one with .run (which just prevent any graphic display).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cannot Run Dual Monitors With NVidia-gfxG02 Proprietary Drivers?

Mar 15, 2011

I have openSUSE 11.4 with standard KDE and two screens attached.Here's the question: How do I configure dual monitors when using the proprietary nVidia drivers?The openSUSE 11.4 installation put in the "nouveau" drivers for my nVidia card and I was able to configure dual monitors using KDE's Configure Desktop --> Display & Monitors GUI configurator. I could also set up dual monitors using a script based on xrandr (e.g. "xrandr --output VGA-1 --auto --pos 0x0 --output DVI-I-1 --auto --pos 1920x0")My screens are detected as VGA-1 and DVI-I-1 by the nouveau drivers.

OK, today I switched to the proprietary nVidia drivers. Only one of the screens is now detected and displayed in the KDE monitor configurator and that's marked as "default" rather than as a VGA or DVI connection.When I run xrandr to configure monitors, I get error messages if I refer to VGA or DVI hardware.

General :: NVIDIA Driver - Proprietary Drivers Wont Install Properly?

Apr 17, 2010

I am currently running Ubuntu 9.10 on a Compaq Presario V3010US. My video card is an NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 which appears to be running properly with some limitations (missing effects from CompizConfig). While utilizing the "Hardware Drivers" configuration a recommended driver is listed but when I attempt to activate this driver I encounter an error.

This error turns my attention to the log file :

This log file is extensive and I do not wish to post pages of code unless requested. The configuration does however list that "a different driver is in use". I have scoured threads to ensure that I have not posted a question that has been answered to no avail. Please bear in mind that I am in my Linux infancy and my grasp of this incredible operating system is cursory at best.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Set Nvidia Drivers - Dual Monitor Without Proprietary Drivers?

Apr 8, 2010

I have been using ubuntu for quite a long time, and for the first time, I am now unable to set nvidia drivers to work. I have just install ubuntu 9.10 amd64 on an AMD 64 athlong X2 with a GEForce 6500 nvidia card.

The only reason I need the proprietary drivers is to use two monitors.

I am going crazy, I have tested everything I have found on the web. I have tried all the nvidia drivers version, I have tried envyng, ... but nvidia do not work!!

I am trying Xinerama with nv, but it does not work either!!!

Here is my xorg.conf file in which I have tried to use nv driver to set dual monitor. X fails to load and it says that screen 0 is deleted, that devices are found but there are no matches in the config file. Any clue?

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"

Ubuntu :: NVidia Propriety Drivers Cause Low Boot Resolution?

May 15, 2010

I have searched all over the internet for a solution to my problem but I have never found one and it is really frustrating me. Basically when I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop everything works fine other than extra desktop effects because obviously graphics drivers or not installed yet. All of this is fine and the boot up screen is at my native resolution 1366x768 or something very close and it looks really nice.

The main problem I have is that as soon as I install my graphics driver for nVidia G105m card for some strange reason the boot up screen becomes a very strange resolution and appears to become very glitchy and it is really bugging me. Instead of the boot screen having a nice purple background and the loading bar and word Ubuntu looking nice and smooth it because large pixelated and every time I boot a big green square flashes during the boot up screen.

This problem goes away as soon as I remove drivers but then obviously I lose desktop effects and then that is just as annoying. Now my question is, is there anyway way I can either fix my low boot up screen resolution or is there another way in which i can enable desktop effects without installing my drivers?

Ubuntu :: Poor Resolution During Boot After Installing Nvidia Drivers

May 17, 2010

I have a HP dv6314tx laptop with Nvidia Geforce Go 7400 graphics card. Recently I installed 10.04. Without installing any nvidia drivers my boot screen resolution and desktop resolution were fine. But I cudn't activate Extra Visual effects and so I installed nvidia drivers. Now the problem is that Extra visual effects work just fine. But during the boot, the splash screen has a very poor resolution.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can No Longer Boot Into 11.4 After Updating NVIDIA Drivers

Apr 24, 2011

Basically everything was going fine, and i was enjoying the OpenSuse experience, then downloaded djl (Games Launcher) , installed some games and found that i had a very very very bad frame rate (about 1FPS), and my GPU is a NVIDIA GTS250 (1GB), and runs most games flawlessly under m$, so i went about installing the graphics drivers for my card. I followed the instructions and was under the assumption that i installed the correct ones, but now i cannot boot into any graphical interface. I think that it should be a graphics issue, as this was one of the few things done before rebooting. I have tried booting into the normal mode, and the failsafe, I have read many other "Not booting'' posts, and have tried their solutions without success, there include: Changing the boot parameters Logging in and manually trying to boot up the gui (init 3.... init 5... etc)

When the computer tries to load up OpenSuse in normal mode, it comes up with the normal loading screen, and then about 90% of the way it stops for about 30 seconds, and then switches over to a CLI, asking for a login, going through the log a couple of things fail, did have these noted down (but cannot find and will post along with other commands that i am asked to do) I want to try and avoid a reinstall as it took me a long time to get the WiFi card working.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVidia Drivers Do Not Support Correct Display Resolution

May 31, 2010

I am new to opensuse and have installed 11.2 KDE. It is simply perfect for my system. However after the initial setup the display resolution was set perfectly fine for my 18.5" LED monitor, default resolution was 1366x768, and everything looked good from desktop to fonts but the OSS drivers didn't support compositing so I decided to switch to nvidia drivers. I installed the driver as shown in openSUSE repositories page, for my 6600GT card. Now after rebooting everything is stretched,even the fonts look really ugly and fuzzy.

I am unable to find any mode in Nvidia XServer settings that would correct the current ugly stretched display. I am unable to set 1366x768 manually as well, doing so my PC won't boot to KDM but rather sticks to console. Now it's for sure that my monitor and display card supports 1366x768 resolution but it's just that nvidia drivers/Nvidia XServer settings won't let me set that resolution. How can I set the resolution or even better if I can enable compositing using OSS drivers then that would be great an dm willing to switch back.

Software :: Have Two Proprietary Nvidia Drivers Installed?

May 13, 2010

I want to run both World of Warcraft and Steam under wine, but WoW won't work with the latest 195.x.x driver, and steam won't work with the previous 185.x.x driver.

Is it possible to have both installed, and to switch between them as needed for different applications? Or will I really have to choose between one or the other?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVIDIA Proprietary Install - 195.36.08 - Fail ?

I tried installing the latest NVidia proprietary drivers, but it was epic fail.

OpenSUSE 11.2

It fails with an "unable to compile kernel module" error.

I stupidly overwrote the log file without backing it up. It had a lot of compile warnings, but I didn't see anything that looked like a compile error. I'll try to generate it again.

Fedora :: Got Font Sizes Right With 14 + KDE + Proprietary Nvidia Drivers?

If anyone else out there is being driven crazy by the fact that their fonts are too big in KDE (with the proprietary nvidia driver), here's all the places you need to change it to make it work:

In /etc/X11/xorg.conf, under Identifier "Screen0", add:
Option "UseEdidDpi" "FALSE"
Option "DPI" "90x90"

Ubuntu :: Proprietary Nvidia Drivers = Ugly Bootup?

Sep 26, 2010

I'm using an Nvidia Geforce 6x card (can't remember the exact number). When I do not have the proprietary driver enabled, the Ubuntu logo and status bar, as well as various boot up messages, look very nice. They are scaled properly and I'm impressed with how they look. When I do enable the proprietary driver, the screen resolution during boot up is much smaller, and therefore everything looks ugly. The little status bar under the Ubuntu logo suddenly fills up and "freezes." The transition from login screen to desktop is jerky.

Unfortunately if I disable my card, I cannot use desktop effects or even view flash videos in full screen mode. (I'm assuming nouveau still has work to do.) Is there any way I can have proprietary drivers enabled and a nice boot up experience?

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Drivers - Get The Proprietary To Work?

Jun 9, 2011

After using Arch Linux for a while, I tried Ubuntu 11.04 again. Most of it was a pleasant surprise, except for the nvidia drivers. I currently have the nouveau drivers, but when I activate the nvidia drivers and reboot, it's installed but not in use. I figured I should run nvidia-xconfig (as suggested by nvidia-settings) but that makes my computer boot into a tty. Removing the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file makes it boot in nouveau again.

How do I install the Nvidia drivers? Ive tried the drivers from nvidia.com too, with the same results. I really want to be able to play my games, and nouveau just isnt going to cut it.

Hardware :: NVIDIA Proprietary Driver - Resolution Changes Not Saved On Restart - Fedora 14

Dec 20, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 14 KDE and NVIDIA proprietary driver for GeForce FX 5200. I'm able to change the resolution to 1920x1080 (Acer H213H 21.5" lcd monitor), but when I restart the box, I lose these settings and I have to fiddle with NVIDIA and KDE monitor settings until I get the settings back.

Here is my xorg.conf file:

Code:

Is this (in)correct? What else can I try in order to keep my resolution at 1920x1080? When I restart, it reverts to 640x480.

I didn't have this problem before installing NVIDIA driver, however, I had visual anomalies and slowness in video refresh/repaint whenever moving windows. I don't want to go back to that so I'd like to see how to permanently propagate my resolution settings through reboots of this box. I've search multiple forums with no relevant hits as far as I was able to discern.

Fedora :: Set Up Any NVidia Video Card Properly With The Proprietary Drivers ?

Jan 5, 2009

Quote:

NOTICE: Some very old nVidia Video Cards from more than 9 years ago might not work with this way, but just try this method because you'll see if there's a driver available for your video card in Fedora or not.

I have been noticing that it was hard to set up my own NVidia video card, and alot of other people shared the same problem as I had. I have been experimenting with some things, and here's what I did to solve it.

It's fairly easy, anyone can do this. Read and follow these instructions:

Install all updates. Although it seems unimportant, it really is.

Go to [url] and follow the instructions to install the free and nonfree repositories

Go to System > Administration > Add/Remove Software

Search the following: nv

Click everything which has to do with NVidia. Do not check the checkboxes yet, but read the descriptions. If you've found your video card in the description, check the checkbox at the left of the title.

Install the drivers by clicking "Apply" at the bottom of your screen.

After installing, go to Applications > System Tools > nVidia Display Settings

Set the properties of your video card, such as TwinView or higher screen resolutions.

After you've set it up, click Apply to preview your settings. Change some settings if you like, and then click Apply when you're done. DO NOT EXIT YET!

Click "Save to X Confguration File, but do NOT save the file. Click "Show preview..." and copy the text in the preview.

Go to Applications > System Tools > Terminal and type "su". Press Enter and enter the root password.

Now type:

Code:

Select all of the text in the document and delete it. Then, paste the text of the "Save X Configuration" window into the text editor.

Exit out of the terminal.

Exit out of the nVidia Display Settings application. Do not save anything from this application.

Log out and log back in to see the changes.

If you want to change some settings, repeat steps 7 - 16.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 No Longer Boots After Activate The Proprietary Nvidia Drivers

Feb 4, 2010

I had, with much delight, accomplished a dual boot install of Ubuntu 9.1.0 and Windows 7 the other day and everything was working perfectly fine. However, I decided to activate the proprietary Nvidia drivers that were available in the drivers menu and my system subsequently no longer operates. After installing and rebooting Ubuntu will no longer work and becomes stuck on a black screen with two white dashes in the top right had of the screen.

This hang up occurs directly after the first white Ubuntu logo appears during the startup and the only key that will work during this screen are Crtl + Alt + F1, which only bring up a second black screen except with a solid white dash in the top right screen. At that point no key will work. I have tried to fix things in recovery mode and used envyng to remove the nvidia drivers as well as other operations, however the same result still appears when I try and run Ubuntu. I own a Sony Vaio Z690C if it makes any difference.

Debian Configuration :: Proprietary Nvidia Drivers Stopped Working After Upgrade

Apr 5, 2011

My GNOME system stopped using the proprietary NVIDIA drivers after the recent dist-upgrade to v6.0.1. It was working perferctly before that.

When I tried to configure the screen resolution using NVIDIA X server settings, I was told to run 'nvidia-xconfig'. I ran it, restarted X but my resolution is still stuck at the maximum of 1024x768. I've tried running the above many times with the same results. I even tried aptitude reinstalling but still the same.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Latest NVidia Proprietary Drivers On 64 Bit Lucid 10.04

Jan 12, 2011

Thought I'd put this together based on what I just did as it's hard to find a place where you get complete info in one place for this topic.

Not taking any credit as it's just piecing together stuff found on the net.

Of course this is for my specific hardware and system so YMMV:
- Palit Sonic GT 240 card
- Lucid 10.04.1 64-bit
- Intel DG33FB board and E7200 CPU
- LG monitor L194WT at 1440x900 res

Reason for choosing the latest NVidia drivers instead of the ones available from the System > Administration > Hardware Drivers option is that the latest ones contain specific fixes for my card, that are not available in the others.

Prerequisites:

All of the following is based on a freshly installed 64-bit Lucid 10.04.1 system. Some actions may need modification if you have already been tinkering with Nvidia drivers.

1. Backup your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file if any. The default clean install of 64-bit Lucid 10.04.1 doesn't create this file so unless you have generated and modified the xorg.conf file for your specific needs, skip this.

2. Install the following packages

Code:

If this doesn't work, run

Code:

And paste the output of that in the command above so you get, say

Code:

3. Remove the following packages using Synaptic's 'Completely Remove' option
- nvidia-173-modaliases
- nvidia-96-modaliases
- nvidia-current-modaliases
- nvidia-common

4. Create a new text file disable-nouveau.conf in the directory /etc/modprobe.d/ with the following contents

Code:

5. Download the latest NVidia drivers applicable to your card from here:[url]

6. Save the downloaded file (e.g. NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.29.run in my case) to an easily accessible location like your home folder. Make this file executable by running, say

Code:

7. Check that the driver was correctly downloaded.

Code:

8. Run Update Manager, Check for updates and Apply any found

Installation:

1. Restart and choose the recovery option from the Grub options list.

2. Choose the Root Shell option in the list of options presented subsequently.

3. At the root shell run the following

Code:

If you skip this, the driver installer will inform you of the need to do this.

4. This will present you with a login prompt. Login with your admin username and password.

5. Navigate to the folder where the driver installer is present and run it, like

Code:

6. Accept the license text.

7. Say Yes to installing the 32-bit Open GL drivers.

8. I think you need to say Yes/ Accept once more time to initiate the driver installation.

9. Once the driver is installed it will ask you whether it should configure xorg.conf for you, say Yes. This will create the xorg.conf file if not present in your system and modify an existing one if present.

10. Back at the prompt, shutdown the system

Code:

11. Restart and use the normal startup option in the Grub options list, if all goes well you should see your beautiful desktop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Proprietary NVIDIA Graphics Drivers From Restricted Repo?

Jul 17, 2011

As this question pops up quite often on IRC and, as a quick search told me, on this board as well, I decided to put together some directions that, with some or the other variation, also apply to other Linux distributions and have never failed me. The following is confirmed to work for Kubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal 64bit with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 and on Kubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal 32bit with a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900XT graphics card.

This HowTo will describe how to install the proprietary NVIDIA graphics card drivers using exclusively the command line. I strongly suggest you try this method for a fresh install of graphics drivers before trying any other method, especially a GUI-driven one (I never used a GUI for package management on a Debian-ish system, but I hear that the Ubuntu Software Center supposedly has a way of installing proprietary graphics drivers).

The restricted packages repository should be enabled by default. To the more experienced users: This HowTo uses apt-get for demonstrating the install process. If you prefer using aptitude, feel free to replace the commands accordingly. First steps. As well be doing everything on the command line, first open a terminal application from your desktop environments menu or from a shortcut icon on your panel, if you have one. You should be greeted by a prompt that looks like this:

Ubuntu :: Stuck At Low Resolution W/nvidia Drivers?

I've tried editing xorg.conf in several different ways, but resolution didn't change, maybe I was doing it the wrong way.
