Ubuntu Installation :: Invoking Gazebo Gives Error - Appeared After Installing NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver
Nov 6, 2010
I have completed building gazebo, and everything was done successfully according to the following link [URL]... bot_Simulation , but when I tried to invoke gazebo using the command "gazebo /usr/local/share/gazebo/worlds/pioneer2dx.world" it returns the following error
I revived my old desktop (failed psu), and installed debian squeeze using netinst. It has a nvidia geForce 7600GT card. The driver in squeeze does not work very well, so I downloaded nvidia driver-installer. When I run it, it comes back with an error saying the kernel (I assume the nvidia graphics kernel) is compiled with gcc4.3, but the system is using gcc4.4. Using synaptic manager, I installed gcc3.3, but same error.
Next I tried to uninstall gcc4.4 and it gave a warning the system might not be usable. I did not understand it, but I went ahead and uninstalled gcc4.4 and guess what, the system is not usable, and I have to re-install squeeze. Not a big loss, since I do not have much in it. How to install this nvidia driver, specifically, how do I get switch to gcc4.3 from gcc4.3? Also, the squeeze install gave me 2.6.33-trunk-amd64, and 2.6.33-3-amd64. How do I get rid of ...trunk-amd64? Do I just delete it from grub?
I am using fedora10 in my notebook. I installed nvidia-graphics driver as follows.
su -c 'rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm' su -c 'rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...ble.noarch.rpm' su -c 'rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*'
Then i installed kmod-nvidia with yum su -c 'yum install kmod-nvidia' When i tried to open NVIDIA control panel, i got a message that nvidia-driver should be configured. Then i issued the following command as root. nvidia-xconfig. The i rebooted the system. Now in the boot menu, i see two kernel informations as follows
If i boot my linux with first one, x windows starts, if i boot with the second one (previously default), the x-windows is not opening. Why this happens? So i booted my system with first option in the boot menu. The system booted and x.windows started but i am not able to use any software that uses opengl window. The glxinfo command gives me the following error.
I am a Ubuntu and LINUX newbie. Install goes easy but I can not get 3D accelerated graphics to work. So I am stuck with poor and slow graphics. I tried and tried with the ATI card and went back to make onboard the primary. Neither seems to allow for visual effects upgrade nor 3d graphics in games.
I am having problems installing the graphics driver (from the Nvidia website) for my Nvidia Vanta card on Ubuntu 10.04. I disabled X via terminal and then I ran a Virtual Console. With the virtual console I ran the chmod command and the went through the installation. It did bring up a message with something about my distro not having a pre-configured script (or something like that) and asked me if I would like to continue anyway. I choose Yes and the installation failed.
I have just installed Ubuntu (9.10) and noted that in order to successfully run the trial off the CD I had to test in "safe graphics" mode. I have an NVIDIA GEforce 6600 GT card - which was discovered by Ubuntu in the first few minutes of the trial and so I activated the recommended driver and continued to test. After a successful trial I installed Ubuntu (dual partition Ubuntu / Windows XP), however, it seems the install didn't activate the required driver (as part of the process) and so I'm unable to get into my newly-installed Ubuntu at all. All I get is a flashing tty screen asking for my username and password - however it's erratic and won't recognise what I type. So - I'm stuck in a catch-22 as there doesn't seems to be a safe graphics mode option via the start (GRUB?) menu list.
I've loaded 11.04 with Unity on a Dell GX260 test machine (2.4 GHz P4, 1 GB of RAM, 40 GB HD, GeForce 6200 video card). I've tried installing both accelerated video drivers, but Compiz won't start and the Additional Drivers program informs me that the driver is loaded but "This driver is activated but not currently in use." How do I put it into use? There seems to be no switch for that effect in the system controls, and I haven't found any informative posts.
So I installed openSUSE 11.1, and got everything from yast2 and then finally got nvidia.ymp or whatever. Bascially, the one click install. When i did that, I couldn't boot into the SUSE GUI. I could boot into the command line but I couldn't start X server.When I did try the Ec2-openSUSE-126.96.36.199 option, I get grub error 13. It says that the ex2fs file system is not supported, only I did not format it with ext2. I am completely stumped and I'm a newbie.
I had a working ubuntu 10.10 system two days ago with kernel 2.6.35-24. I have a gtx 460 card so I have the driver from Jockey/Additional Drivers installed.
Two days ago update manager prompted me to install 2.6.35-25. I've never had problems updating kernels so I did. I Rebooted my machine and gdm/gnome no longer starts. I always get stuck on the tty1 screen. I did some troubleshooting and figured out that my current NVidia drivers seems to be messing it up. So I booted into my older kernel (2.6.35-24) and removed my NVidia driver.
I used these steps to switch from nvidia to nouveau: NvidiaDriverSwitching
I can now boot into my latest kernel (2.6.35-25) but now I'm having problems trying to reinstall the nvidia drivers.
jockey sometimes doesn't list any available drivers. and when it does, it gives me an "System InstallArchive() error" when trying to install.
I tried installing nvidia-current via apt-get and I get these errors:
Code: Setting up nvidia-current (260.19.06-0ubuntu1) ... Removing old nvidia-current-260.19.06 DKMS files... dkms.conf: Error! No 'DEST_MODULE_LOCATION' directive specified. dkms.conf: Error! No 'PACKAGE_NAME' directive specified. dkms.conf: Error! No 'PACKAGE_VERSION' directive specified.
I was trying to install drivers for my ati radeon 9550 and when i typed in the terminal this:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libgl
W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net karmic Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 5A9BF3BB4E5E17B5 a posle ove druge: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
how do i add this repo to sources list and how do i install the public key?
I took the following path: Yast - Hardware - Graphics Card and Monitor; and it gave me message "the configuration is Framebuffer based and your system does not support changes for resolution and/or color settings". I verified my system's(dual boot system) graphics card using windows OS and it showed NVIDIA Quadro FX 570, but in X11 configuration it shows "Card: VESA Framebuffer Graphics" and the Properties tab is not active.
I have install Ubuntu 10.10 64bit in my sony vaio vpccw16fs which have Nvidia graphics card (GT 230M). I have install it using nomodeset and after entering the system I installed nvidia from System> Administration> Additional drivers. Driver version was current 260.19.06. After installation I was able to see the boot screen but was unable to see the logon screen. The computer froze with the background color of bootscreen which is purple. And I have to restart it and have to choose failsafe graphic mode. And after logging in in failsafe graphic mode. My NVidia driver says I am not using it. How to use nvidia driver properly. I have tried many Tutorials present on internet but none of them works.

last night i have fresh installed ubuntu 10.4 on my computer. Then after that, I installed the updates. Lastly, i installed nvidia hardware driver so that i could use its graphical effects. After rebooting my computer, i've noticed that i was disconnected from the internet. And I was surprised that it is the cause of my internet disconnection because when i remove it, my internet comes back. What should I do with this?
I've had Ubuntu installed on my desktop for a month now, and its all worked like a charm, so I'm thrilled. I then decided to install it on my old laptop as well to see if I could breath a bit more life into it, and to get used to working Ubuntu a bit more. The laptop had 18.6GB partitioned to C:// drive or windows XP, and an empty 18.6GB D:// drive, so I deleted the D:// drive in XP using the Microsoft disk utilities tool, all well and good. I then did a clean install of Ubuntu-9.10-desktop with an Ubuntu CD into the largest continuous free space, and it set it up nicely. When I first booted it up there were a ton of updates to install, as there had been on the desktop first time, which I dutifully installed. As on the desktop a little notice popped up telling me to install the NVidia Proprietary driver for the NVidia card (specifically "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version 96)[Recommended]"), as it had when I installed it on the desktop, so I chose to install that and then restarted the computer.
On restarting GRUB2 loaded, and it booted Ubuntu. I then saw the little white logo on the black screen for a couple of seconds, and then the screen goes completely white, with some pixels left behind fading to white slightly slower. First time through I held down the power button to force shut down, and on restart exactly the same thing happened. This time I held down alt+sysrq and went through the R, E, I, S, U, B sequence, however as opposed to usual I didn't get a black terminal-like screen after hitting any of the buttons, although it did reboot on B. It did boot correctly in recovery mode, however I was at a loss what to do here. Incidentally, the same problem occurred when I booted to previous version of the kernel as well.
Then I decided that as I didn't have any data to lose, and it was still early in the day, I'd do a clean re-install. This time I chose to ignore the updates, and just install the NVidia driver as prompted to check that it was the driver causing the trouble. Having installed the driver and restarted I got exactly the same problem as before - definitely this pesky NVidia driver, not any of the updates.So here I am at clean install 3, having just got all the updates, but not having downloaded the NVidia driver as prompted, with little desire to go through yet more reinstalls. My questions are:
1) Do I need to install this NVidia driver? The rest of the computer specifications are fairly paltry by modern standards, and I won't be doing anything graphics intensive on it (the most graphical program will probably be Battle for Wesnoth) and I I don't need to install it, not installing it seems to be the easiest way to solve the problem.
2) If I do need to install it how would I go around doing this without getting my charming white screen?
3) Is there a way of removing the driver from recovery mode that doesn't involve a clean install again? I have tried sudo apt-get purge nvidia-driver, which tells me there isn't any installed. I have tried sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf which made no difference. I have tried dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and this didn't help. I have tried a couple of other commands as well but I can't remember them, however I would probably recognise them if I saw them again.
Onto System information - pulled from listed specifications and SysInfo:

I just installed ubuntu on my m11x and am completely new to ubuntu. After installing the latest driver for the 335m I am stuck at checking battery state and there is no way I can get to the gui anymore. The only access I have to are the tty's and I don't know what to do. I have already tried finding a solution for a couple of hours, but cannot find any. Please help me solve this problem, I do not want to reinstall again.
I installed XMBC and i keep getting this message "Error XBMC needs hardware accelerated OpenGL rendering. Install an appropirate graphic driver" i have a radeon 5750 hd graphics card. i updated the drive thru the website. but i keep getting this message.
I have a nvidia Geforce 8500 on my 10.04 system - the driver I'm using is: NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended]. When I look at System/Preferences/Monitors I am asked if I want to use the vendor's graphics tool and up pops the NVIDIA X Server Settings window. How do I enable 3D acceleration?
I've been having a lot of problem with Linux concerning my intel830 chipset video driver. Fedora seems to have some kind of working Xorg configuration, but I cant prove it since I dont know where Xorg.conf is...
Anyway - When I try to get some kind of Desktop Effects, I get the error prompt "Accelerated 3d Graphics is not available." One reason why I think it might be doing this is because I may be using the VESA driver instead of intel, i830, or i810, etc. But again, I dont know how to check this.
I am new to fedora and cant find how to install the graphics card on fedora14. I have the ASUS ENGT240 graphics card ; 1GB GDDR5 powered by NVIDIA GeForce GT240; when I tried to enable desktop effects a message appeared - "Accelerated 3D graphics is not available". How to find particular driver and also the installation procedure?
After having some trouble with Intel graphics I decided to pick up a PCI Nvidia graphics card. Now I am wondering what driver to use. Is the open source drive good enough to use or should I install the Nvidia driver? I know that things are generally easier with the default driver, especially for support on older cards, but I would like to get the best performance I can. This is for my Dad's computer, so he won't be playing any games, but if it will help with 2D and video that would be great.
The card is an Geforce FX5200 fanless card, I've heard they are well supported in Linux.The computer is a P4 Dell 3000 with Ubuntu desktop 10.04 32bit.
"Your system currently is not capable of hardware accelerated 3D." stupid error. anyway i finally installed fedora 11 and thought i had everything working and then i go to play a game and.. "Your system currently is not capable of hardware accelerated 3D" in ubuntu it had an alert that installed the correct graphics driver and everything was fine but fedora doesn't do that. i've been messing around with it for three days now and i'm giving up. my chipset is nvidia nforce 430(mcp61)
I have just had to install CentOS 5.6 on a family members computer, as they lost there Windows XP key. Anyway, I am needing to install a new nvidia graphics driver. I found a howto on this forum for 5.2 [URL]
I use a program that has 3D graphics everything has a 'laggy' appearance and freezes for short seconds. These programs included any of the games from Ubuntu Software Center, along with other applications such as games ran through Wine(seperate problem).
Things to keep in mind:
-I've downloaded the automatic updates through Ubuntu Software Center. -I'm fairly new to Ubuntu(still learning). -Provide as many details in, if, you post a possible solution. -I'm only using Ubuntu 10.10 as my OS, no dual-boots with Windows or any other OS.
I made the mistake of trying to install an nvidia graphics driver from the download.nvidia.com/opensuse11.2 repository. My card is a PCI quadro nvs 295 so looks like it should be supported. The installation and update of the kernel seemed to be successful, but for some reason sax2 doesn't seem to recognise the nvidia card, even when I run "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia" and I'm stuck with the VESA framebuffer graphics default in /etc/X11/xorg.conf code...
I've found tons of threads on this kind of thing but I only seem to be making things worse trying to fix it. If anyone can give me a hint and fix my pathetic-looking desktop I'd be very grateful!!! At the moment nothing that uses opengl will work either
