Ubuntu Multimedia :: Visual With Nvidia 260.19.06?

Mar 17, 2011

Ever since I let the update manager install the 260.19.06 Nvidia driver I have had page tares about 1/4 of the way down the screen when vsync is enabled, if i disable vsync I get tares all over the screen, with vsync on only 1/4 of the way down the screen. Same in Video playback, flash, games, window draging, always the same location. Its not a big issue as I'm not doing multimedia or games under Linux. I'm more wondering if this is just effecting me or if it's a known issue.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Won't Enable Visual Effects

Apr 19, 2011

I've just finished my new build and installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.I have in it an MSI N8400GS D512D3H (NVidia Geforce 8400GS) which I thought would work for Ubuntu. After installing Ubuntu the visual effects are disabled, can't even get "Normal" settings in the Appearance dialogue. Updates have all been installed. Apt has been updated. "Hardware Drivers" screen draws a blank. No proprietary drivers listed at all. First time I've actually used a Graphics Card in an Ubuntu install.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDIA 'tear Free' Playback Plus Visual Effects ON!

Feb 13, 2011

Your Refresh Rate and Outputs HAS TO be the same freq as your monitor.This overwrites whatever you have set in NVIDIA X Server Settings.I use this on my laptop with an NVidia 8400GS card and on a Revo 3700 (with NVIDIA ION) through SMPlayer and XBMC.You can have choppy free and 'tear free' playback AND visual effects on!

Ubuntu :: Nvidia, Unity, Glxinfo Couldn't Find RGB GLX Visual

Apr 5, 2011

Distro: Ubuntu 11.04-beta1 'natty'
Problem: 'your hardware does not support Unity; you will be using Ubuntu Classic.'
Installed: nvidia-common 0.2.28,
nvidia-current 270.30-0ubuntu3,
nvidia-settings 270.29-0ubuntu1,


After reading a few other threads on the matter, I suspect the problem is with the 'nvidia-current' package more than the libgl1-mesa-glx or unity packages. ... though it does seem odd that Unity doesn't have a non-OpenGL verison.

If I find a solution, I'll come back. I hope the answer isn't "ditch nvidia-current for the binary install script from nVidia direct." If someone found this thread in a search, the nVidia driver install scripts can be found at [URL]

Fedora :: Nvidia (GeForce Go 7900 GTX) Driver Install Ok But No GLX Visual

Feb 11, 2010

I've enjoyed accelerated 3d graphics for years with this laptop, but since moving from CentOS 5.3 to FC12 I have had no 3d or opengl working at all.My install seems good. I'm running right now with the 'nvidia' driver in 1920x1200 res with no real problems except the lack of 3d. I have just finished trawling the forums again, coming back to: F12,F11 & F10 Nvidia driver guides [URL] I uninstalled all my nvidia packages, re-installed only "kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686" and dependencies, ensured 'nvidia' was my selected driver in xorg.conf (using nvidia-config-display disable, then enable), and rebooted, and still no joy. No errors in Xorg.0.log. My 'glx' extension is loaded. 'nouveau' is rdblacklisted. SELinux is disabled. I have 3Gb RAM and so have chosen not to use the PAE kernel or modules.

Slackware :: 3D Acceleration With NVidia 8500GT PCI-E Graphics Card - Error: Couldn't Find RGB GLX Visual Or Fbconfig

Oct 20, 2010

I have a Slackware 13.1/64-current system running the kernel that I have installed the most recent nvidia drivers for (as of yesterday or day before) 260.19.12. If I boot up into run level 4 after running nvidia-xconfig in a console and run glxinfo as root I get:


bash-4.1# glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

If I edit /etc/profile or /home/username/.bash_profile and add the following:



I have set both X=0 and X=1 as reported by [URL] I get the screen of information except it says


direct rendering: No (LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT set)

my lspci -v for the graphics card looks like this:

05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G86 [GeForce 8500 GT] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: XFX Pine Group Inc. Device 2353
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16


I am sure I missing something from my xorg.conf but at this point I am not sure what I have been searching on this for days to no avail. From the log the only thing that looks like is a problem is it doesn't load the keyboard and mouse but it gets loaded later on in the file.

Ubuntu :: NVidia Driver "Desktop Visual Effects Cannot Be Enabled"

Jun 26, 2011

I have new hardware and I'm doing a dual boot, hoping that Ubuntu will be my primary OS, but I'm having trouble ringing it out. I installed Ultimate Edition 2.6.1 and in the past with an old machine I could turn on visual effects. With this machine, when I try to, it says it's looking for a driver, blinks a bit and then comes back with a message saying "Desktop visual effects cannot be enabled."

I assume that I don't have the nVidia driver loaded. When I go to Hardware Drivers, it says "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system." In synaptic, the latest driver does not show up. I followed the instructions on this site that someone put up which required adding some lines to the "Blacklist" then purging old drivers. It said to expect an error and what to do then, but I never got the error. When I tried to do the rest of the commands anyway, nothing seemed to happen. One of the steps was to download the latest driver, which I did. It was a .run file...........

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Visual Effects Not Retained After Reboot?

Feb 27, 2010

I like my wobbly windows, love 'em. Recently on the latest ATI manual driver update they went away. From boot, log into desktop, my pidgin window defaults to open. Can move it for about 1.5 seconds and be wobbly then the screen does it's reinitialize thing and the window becomes non-wobbled again. At any time I can go to System > Preferences > Appearance > Visual Effects and enable the effects and they work without issue. So, start up with visual effects, something right away turns them off, I can turn them back on at any time and they will stay on. I don't think its actually anything to do with my graphics cards drivers - those seem to be fine. Rather I believe it is a Gnome setting somewhere. I have tried setting my Visual Effects to None, rebooting setting them back to where I like them and rebooting again in case it was a corrupted setting.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rosegarden Doesn't Work Along With Desktop Visual Effects

Dec 21, 2010

I have just finished installing Ubuntu Studio in my machine and downloaded and installed the Nvidia drivers. I was so excited about using the desktop visual effects that I had seen in some advertising. But first, I just found 3 options in the Appearences config none, normal and extra. Where are desktop effects such as windows trasparence, the cube an others?

Second, and worst, I enabled the "extra" options and found its effects pleasant, but I could not use the for any longer because when I launch Rosegarden with desktop effects enabled, Rosegarden's title screen appears and after that its windows doesn't appear. I found out that the problem is enabling desktop effects because when they are disabled Rosegarden starts completely in few seconds. I even made a test and enabled effects, launched Rosegarden, wich of course dind't appear, after that disabled effects and Rosegarden's window imediately appeared. I use this software every day and it was the main reason why I migrated to Ubuntu. How can I use Rosegarden and visual effects as well?

PS: My PC has Pentium dual core with 2 x 1,88, 3GB RAM and Nvidia Geforce 8400 GS. My system is Ubuntu Studio 10.10 with Rosegarden 10.10 installed from [URL]

Debian Multimedia :: Weird Visual Artefact In Gnome Panel

Sometimes I get this ugly grey square in the system tray area of my panel. [URL] I'm guessing it belongs to an item that isn't there, but if I start an additionnal tray program, the new app doesn't take this place, instead it adds itself to the left of the tray. And it doesn't belong to a program that I used and closed, since it's there after a fresh boot.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Old Video Card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT Now Beginning To Fail - Which Way Is Best, ATI Or Nvidia?

May 3, 2010

I have an old video card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT, which is now beginning to fail and I need to upgrade. I am not huge a gamer but I do play/buy games on regular basis. Right now I'm playing Eternal Lands on the Linux side. Looking to spend $100-$150 on a new card.I have a Core2Duo Wolfdale 3.0, with 2ghz ram and run Lucid 32bit. Also run windows Vista64Ultimate on dual boot (rarely).

I would love to buy a new ATI 5770 or 5830, ATI budget cards seem to be much better for the buck over budget Nvidia cards, but I'm concerned with ATI drivers and long term with Ubuntu.On the Nvidia side I'm considering the GTS 250. The only advantage I can find is lower power consumption with Nvidia and Ubuntu has always preferred Nvidia over ATI, as far as working drivers go.As Far as Ubuntu and Lucid is concerned, which way is best, ATI or Nvidia? Has anything changed with ATI support, that could make theor cards more compatible now and in the future?

Debian Multimedia :: "Unable To Load Nvidia.ko" When Running NVIDIA*.run?

Feb 20, 2011

I am running Debian Squeeze with 2.6.32-5 amd64 kernel with GCC 4.3.5 (the same one used to build the kernel) installed. I have a nVidia GTX 470. I'm trying to install the latest nVidia drivers (260. ...). I've never installed noveau or any other open source nVidia driver. Here's what I've been doing:-Change the "Driver "nvidia"" line in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to "Driver "vesa""-Restart system in single user mode as root, no services running-cd to the directory with nvidia-Linux-x86_64-... .run (what I'll call nvidia.run)-enter "sh nvidia.run --uninstall"-enter "CC="/usr/bin/gcc-4.3" && sh nvidia.run"It starts up and it compiles the kernel 100%. Then it says this:

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'.á This happens most
frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or
improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get 1080p On A Nvidia ION With VLC

Jul 2, 2010

I ended up getting 1080p playback working perfectly with vlc on my 1201n about 2 months ago, but then I decided I'd reformat my system to clean it out a little. There's other tutorials out there, but none are as straightforward as that one. I literally copy and pasted the commands and it worked like magic...now I have the latest nvidia driver installed, but vlc 1.1 won't let me check the GPU acceleration box under Preferences > 'Input and Codecs'.

I remember that this tutorial gave you PPAs for debs of vlc pre-1.1 git files, and a list of all the necessary software to install (vlc, vdpau, smplayer). It was hosted on a site other than ubuntuforums, and it was the only one that worked at the time for me.

Anyone know what I'm talking about, or give similar links? I think with this new nvidia driver stuff is actually being slowed down a bit, but that doesn't explain why VLC won't let me activate GPU acceleration.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Versus Nvidia

Jul 18, 2010

Are there big disadvantages to building a computer around a motherboard with ATI Radeon graphics instead of Nvidia? I am using an AMD CPU to save money, but all the motherboards AMD recommends use ATI. I have always used Nvidia in the past, And am not sure what the current state of ATI Linux drivers is. I know I would be giving up VDPAU acceleration for video playback, but hopefully the Athlon´┐Ż II X4 635 processor I am looking at has enough horsepower to handle this on it's own, even for high-def h264.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Install NVidia 260.19.12

Oct 15, 2010

nVidia came out with new drivers yesterday that are not in the nvidia-current metapackage. I don't care what card you have, this module drives it. What worked for me may not necessarily work for everyone, as I am not an oracle with respect to your particular system configuration. This howto will be done in broad strokes. Down to business. For this howto, I will assume two things: first, that you download the nVidia installer to /home/username; second, that your prior setup was having nvidia-current installed! Things we want installed


build-essentials linux-headers-generic linux-source

Thing we do NOT want installed



Paranoid stuff we'd like to do just in case the above doesn't work (as it did not for me): sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Somewhere in the file, add the line "blacklist nouveau" PRINT THESE INSTRUCTIONS NOW BEFORE YOU KILL YOUR X SERVER Now, I installed by doing (from my home user directory)


sudo stop gdm
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current
sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.12.run -a

This stops the X server, removes the potentially conflicting current drivers you have, installs the new driver (and -a accepts the license agreement so that we don't get prompted), and reboots.If this does not work, you can rollback from a LiveCD or the recovery mode with (again, from your home user directory)


sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.12.run --uninstall
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Over HDMI With Nvidia ION ?

Jan 4, 2010

I am having trouble getting sound over hdmi with my Nvidia MCP7A HDMI. The strange thing is that everything works fine in a Live disc, but once I do a fresh install of that Live disc I get no sound, even though my configuration is exactly the same (as far as I can tell). I've checked the little things like alsamixer volumes, aplay -l, etc etc. Everything looks good to me. I can reproduce on multiple TVs so its not the receiver. Video drivers are the same in both live version and installed. aplay -l detects my device. sound/pci/hda/patch_nvhdmi.c already has my correct vendor id in it. Perhaps the following info can figure out what my installed environment is lacking.
