Ubuntu :: Installed Wrong Xserver Graphics Drivers

Feb 21, 2011

I accidentally installed ATI graphics drivers on an intel graphics system. They didn't appear to install properly, because upon next boot everything was fine, except for compiz and any 3d game.

compiz-check says that I've managed to get intel back as default, but I'm still missing a rendering method.

Does anyone know how to get the renderer back? I assume it has something to do with changing the kernel? I don't know how to change the kernel anyway.

Debian Hardware :: Installed Grsecurity Kernel - But Now Wrong Network Drivers

Jun 4, 2010

Ok.. when it comes to drivers and kernels...I have a rented server - so I do not have local access to it, and I do not have a KVM or remote console to it.

This is the current kernel that came with it:

Linux version 2.6.26-2-686 (Debian 2.6.26-22lenny1) (dannf@debian.org) (gcc version 4.1.3 20080704 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.2-25)) #1 SMP Wed May 12 21:56:10 UTC 2010 the network card module according to support is r8169 (when i do lsmod i see r8169 listed), lspci lists it as: Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03).

So.. where everything went bad is after I installed grsecurity kernel via apt-get install linux-image-grsec. It installed and rebooted successfully, but without the right network card module. The datacentre support had to reboot it to the original kernel for me.

So - i don't know how to update the network card drivers of the grsecurity kernel? It has to be perfect (I can't do trial and error) because each attempt that fails, I have to engage the datacentre support to reboot the system back into the original kernel. Apparently the new kernel detected it as a gigabit fibre card.

Ubuntu :: Get Graphics Drivers For ATI Radeon X1270 Installed On 9.04 Desktop?

Jun 17, 2009

I just got a free Ubuntu 9.04 desktop cd in the mail today, but I'm already having a problem.

I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop 32 bit. I need graphics drivers for playing video games such as Nexuiz. My graphics hardware is in ATI Radeon X1200 series. The fglrx driver I downloaded from ATI does not install.

When I use code...

Ubuntu :: Installed Most Recent Drivers For Graphics Card Killed System / Fix It?

Mar 7, 2010

Completely new to Ubuntu, basically never used anything but Windows before, hadn't even had a chance to properly test out Ubuntu before I broke it. So, sorry if this question is very easy...or if I'm posting it in the wrong place...

Anyway, I cleverly installed the most recent drivers for my graphics card, and it killed Ubuntu - it won't start now. This happens on Windows, too, but Windows will System Restore for me. How might I fix this in Ubuntu?

I can choose Ubuntu from the grub menu, but then the screen goes blank, the fan on my computer goes into overdrive, and nothing happens.

Am currently running my Karmic Koala from LiveCD...

Debian Configuration :: Ways To Get Drivers Installed For Graphics Card

Jul 4, 2010

I'm going about my ways to get my drivers installed for my graphics card, but the page I'm using, URL>..has me apt-get install "nvidia-kernel-common".Synaptic says it doesn't exist, and it appears to be a pretty important package to have. So is there a way for somebody to get that online for me to install?

Fedora :: NVidia Drivers Installed - Graphics Errors Using Firefox

May 6, 2011

Sometimes, in Firefox, after looking a video and closing the corresponding tab, a still picture of the video appears in other tabs, even in some other applications than Firefox (e.g. Terminal). I've installed the nvidia drivers on Fedora 14. They seem to work properly.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xserver No Longer Works After Removing Bad Graphics Card?

Apr 30, 2010

It all started Tuesday morning. I woke up and turned my computer on. Normally I just leave it on all the time, but I turned it off the previous night for some reason. When I turned it on, everything worked fine for about 10 minutes, until my monitor said "Monitor Working Out of Scan Range." I messed with the settings on the monitor to try and get it back, but to no avail. Restarting would make it work, but for even shorter periods. It eventually would display the manufacturer image (Everex), and then go dead again with the same message.

I thought it was the monitor at first, and got a new one. The new one is a wide screen 18.5 inch Dell IN1910N. The problem persisted, so I knew it wasn't this. I kinda figured it out when I started smelling something burning coming from my computer, and discovered it was the graphics card I installed awhile back. It is the pci ATI X1550, and its fan no longer worked.

So I figured, well, I will just remove it and go back to the onboard video. Doing this worked fine, until I got to the stage where it tried to boot to the Xserver, and then the computer just hangs. No sounds indicate I ever get to a logon screen or anything.

Now, I tried commands like sudo dpkg-configure xserver-xorg, and it asked me a lot of questions about my keyboard, but didn't fix my video. I also tried the "Xfix" option in recovery mode, and it purged all the old fglrx drivers, but that didn't help either.

I am currently using a live CD (I was doing straight command-line for awhile, after I also played hell getting the wireless working). I tried literally coping and pasting the entire contents of the X11 folder over, but that didn't work either (the xorg.conf files were the same anyway). I don't know what to do to get my old partition to boot X correctly.

All the commands I was copying before are not in my terminal now, and I'm not sure exactly what command-line information you need. I know that Openchrome is supposed to run the onboard VIA video, but I don't recall the command that tells me everything about it.

Ubuntu :: Get A Message That There's Something Wrong With The Graphics Or Video Card?

Feb 2, 2010

I'm a Ubuntu Karmic Koala (9.10) user.Everytime I start Ubuntu up, before the login screen, I get a message that there's something wrong with the graphics or videocard, telling me that I'd have to run Ubuntu in low-resolution. Okay, fine, log-in screen, I log in. The wallpaper loads. That's all that loads. No panels at all, no desktop icons, nothing. Alt + F2 doesn't work and I strongly fear that I'd have to reinstall Ubuntu, and that's a great loss to all my files. I currently can't afford external memory and I don't have external memory in possession.

Debian :: Console In Graphics Mode - Colors Scheme Wrong

Mar 18, 2010

I was installing some packages yesterday, I think one of them was an update for grub. (I'm using grub 2). When I rebooted, the console text was in green, not the usual white. (using gfxpayload=800x600 i.e. console is in graphics mode). I first thought maybe it was some kind of St. Patrick's day joke, but now I am getting tired of it. How do I set the color scheme back to normal?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Blinking LXDE And Gnome - Fresh Install - Graphics Resolution Is Wrong?

Apr 7, 2011

I've borrowed a copy of 11.4 DVD install disc from someone at work, everything went fine install wise. Except Grub taking control, which I didn't ask it to, but easy fix with yast, problem is firstly my graphics resolution is wrong, but I'm trying to work that one out myself as it always seems to be happening with distros I use on my machine. The weird thing is my desktop blinks! Every 10secs or so the whole screen goes blank and then reappears? I thought it might be the wrong refresh rate, but that's at 60Hz which is correct, would it be the resolution problem?

My hardware:-
P4 2.8
1Gb ram
Geforce FX 5500
Dell 1703FP monitor

I was trying to running diagnostic's from Opensuse, but the blinking was getting on my nerves and I'm not familiar with a non Debian based OS......yet! I've got compiz and all running on the hardware in my Ubuntu install after editing the xorg.conf, could I simply copy that to my Opensuse install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Installed On Wrong HD ?

Aug 27, 2010

I have two HDs and recently reinstalled Ubuntu.

However, I think grub may have installed to my media drive and not my main HD.

Here is the output of fdisk -l:


dev/sda1 is my media drive and I think during setup grub-install may have been automatically run on /dev/sda1. If this is the case,

1) How can I remove grub from sda1 and install it on sdb?
2) Should it be on sdb1 or sdb2?
3) Can I change the naming so my main drive is sda and my media drive is sdb?

Ubuntu :: Ati Graphics Drivers Don't Appear To Work?

Aug 18, 2010

While trying live usb versions of different gnome and kde distributions, i noticed very unusable performance, however since i read that live media versions of linux did not perform well, i merely assumed that was the reason.

The sad thing is though, i installed ubuntu 10.4 x64 and i am still having the same problems. The only way to get the system slightly usable is to completely disable desktop effects. However, even then, it sort of feels like windows xp before you have installed graphics drivers - like it's not using the hardware at all.

Even the little fish screensaver is basically unrunnable.

My graphics card is an ati radeon x1950 pro AGP version. I read on their site that they only support up to x-org 11.4 and i heard that the linux distributions as of now are beyond that - so i cannot install the official drivers for it (whether they are any good anyway?). I saw in the package manager there are radeonhd drivers also, but i didn't really know what these are and this card is before ati started making their hd series.

So basically, i don't really know what to do or where to turn to in regards to this.

Some other small, unrelated questions are:

How can i increase the amount scrolled with each click of my scroll wheel so it's equivalent to windows? it seems to be one line at the moment, where as in windows i think it is something like 3 - whatever the case, it seems painfully slow.

Also, of my 5 button intellimouse explorer, strangely, the extra forward and back buttons seem to work, but the middle click button doesn't - or at least, holding it in and dragging the mouse to scroll doesn't seem to work - or should it be used for something different in linux?

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot Up After Graphics Drivers

Jan 29, 2011

I made my Ubuntu-server(with GNOME desktop) unbootable after playing with the binary drivers for nvidia(my card is gtx 470). I was able to use it in the past with the proprietary drivers, but somehow I tweaked some settings, tried to install new drivers etc and actually I don't remember much of what I did because I had finals at school so my ubuntu install just remained unbootable like that. All I know is that I can't even boot in recovery mode (command line). I tried to boot with a live cd, chroot into the ubuntu partition and fix the graphics but it didn't work.

Ubuntu :: Enabling Graphics Drivers In 11.04?

Mar 12, 2011

I'm using an ATI Radeon HD 6850, and although drivers aren't enabled, 11.04 fits my resolution, and has animation/shadows. I need to enable drivers so games like Minecraft will run better. Whenever I install the drivers, 11.04 fails to load, or it'll just give me a barrage of glitches. How can I install the latest ATI Drivers for Ubuntu 11.04?

Ubuntu :: Use Older Graphics Drivers With 11.04?

Jun 13, 2011

For me, Ubuntu 11.04 can only use "software rasterizer" with Open GL. I think this is possibly because I have to disable kernel mode-setting on my PC and the new drivers with 11.04 need KMS to work. Though that's just my guess. In Ubuntu 10.04 hardware accelerated OpenGL works fine with KMS off. So does anybody know how I can use those older drivers in 11.04? OR Does anybody know how to make Ubuntu 11.04's drivers work with KMS disabled?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.2 And Parallel Printer HP4L (Wrong Drivers)

Dec 28, 2009

I use (open) SUSE since version 7.1 and never had any trouble using my HP Laserjet 4L. So I hardly paid any attention to the installation after installing OpenSuse 11.2. Until I tried to print something from OpenOffice.org and my printer started printing empty pages with a first page with some garbage. It looked like a wrong driver. Suse recognized the printer without any trouble and installed - what seemed the correct - driver. I tried several other drivers from the list but they all gave the same result.

Something wrong with the printer - which functions already more than ten years? I tried it on Windows Vista (dual boot on the same computer) and Vista printed without any problem a correct test page. So nothing wrong with the printer. I tried a live CD with Ubuntu 9.10. And Ubuntu gave the same problem as OpenSuse: printing a line with garbage and empty pages. Is something wrong with the kernel?

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Installed To Wrong Drive?

Jul 6, 2010

I have a system with two hard drives: an old one with XP and Ubuntu on it, and a new one on which I have done a fresh install of XP. The BIOS is set to boot off the new drive. I have now installed Ubuntu Studio 10.04(off an alternate install disc, not a live CD)onto a partition on the new drive. The installation went fine, but it appears to have written the GRUB bootloader to the old disc. The result is that when I boot up, the system boots straight into XP off the new drive, without ever seeing GRUB. I could reset the boot order in the BIOS each time I boot according to which OS I want, but that is cumbersome; also I would like to be able to remove the old drive at some point.

What is the easiest way for me to re-install GRUB to the new disc ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed Kubuntu For The Wrong Archetecture

Jul 10, 2011

A couple weeks ago I became fed up with using Backtrack5 as a primary OS, as fun as it is, and installed Kubuntu 64-bit for AMD on a laptop with an intel chip. I didn't see an intel iso on Kubuntu's site right away, and I suppose I was too excited to try it to care. I have been having some problems with plugins working correctly, but i'm not even sure this architectural mixup is to blame for that.

To cut to the chase, should I be worried about installing kubuntu that was intended for AMD on a board with an intel chip? I figure i havent really done anything I can't easily redo yet, and if I want to reinstall, i'd like to do it before I cross that bridge!

Ubuntu :: Installed The Wrong Video Driver - Continuous Restarts

I installed the video drivers for my ATi 3870 and I found out the hard way it was the wrong driver, so now upon booting I can only get as far as an Ubuntu screen with some text and then my computer will restart once it reaches that point. It'll keep doing this until I turn it off, and I can't seem to get to a point in which I can get any control over it. I made a live CD but it has the same effect.
