General :: Get Xorg Drivers To Work Right On NVidia NV18 GeForce4MX Ubuntu 10.10?

Oct 27, 2010

With Ubuntu 10.10 I cannot get a proprietary driver to work with the nVidia NV18 GeFroce4MX video on my PC. I worked fine on 10.04 LTS. Numerous posts on Ubunutu forums, but none seem to work for my PC.Only thing that seems to work in part is to use xorg 1.9 driver. However, something is not right as mouse cursor has to be positioned about one line above where you would normally click to get things to work.

Ubuntu :: Change The Running Driver From Vesa To The Correct Intel Driver?

Oct 1, 2010

I have installed xubuntu 10.04 on a HP Pavilion dv1049ea and am having trouble installing the drivers for the graphics card. When installing i had to use the boot option -xforcevesa in order to get the screen working. Now that it is installed there is constant screen flicker but apart from that all other aspects of the system are working fine. In the display menu i am unable to change the refresh rate. How do i change the running driver from vesa to the correct intel driver? The graphics card is an Intel Graphics 82852/82855.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia-glx-173 Driver Won't Download - Keeps Asking For CD

Mar 20, 2010

I've installed 9.10 and wish to use the nvidia-glx-173 driver as recommended by jockey. Using the jocky GUI just hangs at 100% cpu, a significant portion of which is the cdrom process; I've tried installing the package directly in aptitude and get the error:

Code:

Media Change: Please insert the disc labeled 'Ubuntu 9.10 _Karmic Koala_ - Release i386 (20091028.5)' in the drive '/cdrom/' and press [Enter]. The installation disc (standard x86 disk from shipit) doesn't satisfy it. How do I get aptitude to just download it from online repositories?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get NVIDIA 195.36.24 Driver Installed

May 19, 2010

I have a Zotac IONITX-F-E motherboard (Intel Atom Dual Core 1.6 GHz + Nvidia ION) -based box with Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit installed. My goal is to play back 1080p video. I read somewhere that the nouveau driver that installs by default with ubuntu 10.04 does not support VDPAU. So, my first step is to install the nVidia proprietary driver. I tried following a half-dozen different guides for doing this, none of which worked. Let's take this one for example: [URL] I purge. I reboot. I run the Nvidia installer (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.24-pkg2.run). I get:

Code: ERROR: Unable to create '/usr/lib/nvidia-current/libGL.so.195.36.15' for copying (no such file or directory). So, I run: Code: sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 nvidia-185-modaliases I try the nvidia installer again. It works. I reboot. I get a message saying that ubuntu is running in low graphics mode, because loading the nvidia kernel module failed. I check /var/log/messages and see: Code: API mismatch: the client has version 195.36.24 but the kernel module has version 195.36.15. I take a Tylenol and here I am.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Use The Nvidia Driver

May 28, 2010

I just performed a clean install of Kubuntu Lucid earlier this week after deciding it was time to upgrade from Hardy. Pretty much everything worked, until I attempted to install the proprietary NVIDIA driver.

OS details: Kubuntu 10.04 x64 Kernel 2.6.32.22.What happened when I tried to install the proprietary nvidia-current package was simply that it didn't work. I could open the nvidia utility, it would say the driver was not in use. Attempts to force the issue by running nvidia-xconfig would render the X server unable to start, which gave me some quality time in a shell console with APT or restoring the xorg.conf file from backup. Trying to compile and install the driver from nvidia also wasn't working out so well.

I think the issue boiled-down to the install presumably attempting to upgrade the kernel during initial install from CD, but not doing so completely. I had all the appropriate 2.6.32.22 kernel and header packages, but GRUB was apparently still booting to the 2.6.32.21 kernel (which had no headers or anything) and not giving options to boot to the upgraded kernel.

How I fixed this was to remove all packages related to the 2.6.32.22 kernel via APT, then remove all the 2.6.32.21 kernel packages. That second operation triggered the 2.6.32.22 kernel to be reinstalled, and GRUB to be configured correctly to boot to it. At that point, I reinstalled nvidia-current, and it worked. I tried this after determining I was on the 2.6.32.21 kernel, and had no option to boot to the 2.6.32.22 one.

Your mileage may vary. In retrospect, I probably could've fixed it by fixing GRUB to boot to the current kernel. This appears to be a consistent issue, as I reinstalled at one point, just to start over, and went through the same thing again.

I suspect the driver I obtained from the nvidia website and patched (due to issues it has with recent kernels) might work now that I'm booting to the correct kernel with headers, but I think I'll save that for another time since nvidia-current is working great for me at the moment.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: New Nvidia Driver Installation In 10.04?

Jun 16, 2010

I wish to update my nvidia driver (I was running 195.36.24 and I want to update to 195.36.31). I followed all the instructions on this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1467074) and everything went well until this part:

Code:
sudo sh blahblah.run

The error I get in the terminal reads: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing. For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVER in the README available on the Linux driver download page at [URL]...I have no idea how to exit X as it's not in my system processes.I have updated my nvidia driver in the past but have never encountered this problem. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell XPS M1530 if that matters.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 - NVidia Driver 260.19.16 Are Not Latest

Oct 30, 2010

[URL]. I now have both monitor working and noticed my drivers are not current. I have the older ones installed. The 260.19.06 one. I installed via the suggested restricted driver utility in ubuntu 10.10. I don't have full use of the graphics and would like to install the latest driver.

Question:
1. Do I uninstall nouvea and nv drivers (still installed)
2. Do I uninstall the current nvidia driver, then do a manual install of the latest driver from nvidia?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 Nvidia Proprietary Driver No GUI

Nov 23, 2010

Installing Mythbuntu 10.10, which I finally got installed properly. At first I installed the open-source video drivers just to make sure the installation worked, then I installed the "version current" proprietary drivers using the graphics drivers manager...tool...thing. However, when I restarted the computer, it has a text-mode splash screen and I stay in the first virtual terminal.

If I try to go to the GUI "terminal" [Ctrl-Alt-F7], it appears to be partway through some kind of check:

Code:

I ran sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg to try to get back to the open-source drivers, but it didn't give any text output and went straight to the next line of command prompt, when I restarted it did the exact same thing. Any tips for at least getting back to the open drivers? I'd like to not have to reinstall again (I'm dual-booting WinXP,). The card in question is a GeForce 6200 AGP.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 Updating Nvidia Driver Beyond 195.36.24

Jul 11, 2011

My ubuntu 10.04 64 bit system uses the nvidia driver 195.36.24. I do not remember installing it, but I must have installed it using "official channels".In fact, the package nvidia-current is installed on my system.What is the cleanest way to upgrade to a later version of the nvidia driver? I need to do this in order to run a CUDA 4.0 enabled application. Minimum driver version I need: 270.41. I'm willing to ditch Ubuntu 10.04 if necessary.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No DVD Or File Playback With NVIDIA Driver?

I have installed the recommended driver for my nvidia card (185), and after much fiddling finally got my config file to stick and boot correctly, however I can't see the output of the media player or the DVD player. The files play because I can hear them, but I don't see any output. I have moved the depth to 16 bit, but I still don't get anything.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Which Driver For Nvidia Graphics Card?

Jun 6, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Restart A Video Driver (NVidia)

Sep 21, 2010

I'm using my Ubuntu 10.04 as a server, headless or with HDMI receiver/TV setup. There is a lot's of topics how to make it work headless/VNS. I found the least trouble is to make a fake VGA from old VGA cable and 3 resistors. However, when I start my Ubuntu with Fake VGA it won't switch to HDMI when I turn my Receiver/HDMI on. If I restart X it is fastest way to pick the HDMI Video/7.1 Audio up. I can do it via VNC or ssh and going to do it with 'irexec' so my wife will be able to redetect the HDMI and run XBMC with one button click of the remote.The problem is restarting X kills all my GUI apps (KTorrent, ...). Is there a way to force the video driver to restart or redetect the screens?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Nvidia Graphics Driver On 10.04?

Oct 3, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Upgraded To 10.10 - Nvidia Driver Are Not Working

Nov 11, 2010

I upgraded to 10.10 from 10.04, and I noticed that the nvidia driver are not working all well as they did before.

Although I get the nvidia logo when X starts, the 3d part does not work well. For example using mplayer -vo gl does not work anymore. When I type glxinfo I get the x error of failed request badwindow message. More anonyingly flash will crash when going to fullscreen.

The 2d part of the drivers seem fine because xvinfo and -vo xv works fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Compiz And Text Lag With NVIDIA Driver 270.18

Jan 25, 2011

Ever since I upgraded my video driver (the proprietary NVIDIA drivers) to 270.18, I have been experiencing lag when typing and when using Compiz as my WM. I can work around both problems by switching the WM to Metacity, but obviously I don't want to continue using that. I have tried changing my Compiz settings but to little avail. If you want my OS and graphics card, the OS is Ubuntu 10.10 and the graphics card is a NVIDIA GT 330M.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: X Does Not Start After Nvidia Driver Installation On 10.10?

Feb 16, 2011

I am trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on my new computer: an Asus U33Jc. It is a 64bit machine. Everything seems Ok until I try to install the nvidia drivers. First, I tried to install it through the graphical interface as it popped up shortly after the install. Then, I tried to install the most up to date driver (290.19.36) found on nvidia's website. In both cases I get the same problem.

When I boot the computer it freezes at startup typically at the stage: "Checking battery state..." but not only (sometines before or after). In any case I never get to a graphical interface. I looked at many forums on the web (here here here and here for instance). But no solution work so far. Apparently there is a conflict with nouveau so I have blacklisted it. It seems the computer does not send the information on the good output, so I tried to twick my xorg.conf in different ways without any result.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Weird Artifacts With Nvidia Driver?

Apr 23, 2011

I'm trying to get my nvidia card working on my Lucid machine using the proprietary driver (yes I know; have to have 3d for my Nexsuiz to work at a reasonable framerate). It works fine with the nv driver, but as soon as I use the nvidia driver I get a messed-up screen (see attachment). The /etc/X11/xorg.conf for the nvidia driver contains:

Code:
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24
EndSection

[Code]...

So does anyone have suggestions to allow me to use the nvidia driver? Perhaps I need a custom modeline?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Failure To Install Nvidia Driver?

May 7, 2011

I'm having issues installing the nvidia-96 driver package on the new Lubuntu 11.04. I have a GeForce4ti 4200 card and have had that driver package install successfuly on numerous flavors of Ubuntu over the years.

apt-get spits out the following error:

Code: The following packages have unmet dependencies: nvidia-96 : Depends: xorg-video-abi-8.0 but it is not installable Depends: xserver-xorg-core (>= 2:1.8.99.905-1ubuntu3) but it is not going to be installed
Meanwhile, a check of the currently installed xserver-xorg-core through apt-cache shows:

The nouveau driver does work, but I would really like full 3d acceleration like I have had in the past.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Keep Out Proprietary NVIDIA Driver

I just re-installed Jessie via Debian non-free DVD. When I run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, the screen says to the effect :

"Before Nouveau can be used, must remove Nvidia config from xorg.conf and xorg.conf.d"

Is there a simple way to keep Nouveau and blacklist or prevent Nvidia driver from being automatically installed in the first place?

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia Driver On 2 Kernels ?

Feb 10, 2010

Running debian sid. I have the Debian 2.6.32-trunk kernel installed and the liquorix kernel.

I use sgfxi to install the nvidia driver. Normally sgfxi allegedly strips out all prior nvidia, using both the nvidia uninstaller and purging any debian nvidia packages.

Today when I updated the liquorix kernel and reinstalled the drivers for the new kernel, it was still installed in the old kernel. Normally it is just installed in one kernel.

Graphics:
Card nVidia G96 [GeForce 9400 GT] X.Org 1.7.4 Res: 1280x1024@50.0hz

GLX Renderer GeForce 9400 GT/PCI/SSE2 GLX Version 3.2.0 NVIDIA 190.53 Direct Rendering Yes

I guess the questions is, is this a new feature or just some weird glitch? Also I only get the nvidia splash on the Debian kernel and not on the liquorix kernel.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Save Screen Resolution Wit Nvidia Driver

Jan 27, 2010

Since I upgraded to 9.04 a while back I have had this annoying screen resolution issue. Every time I log into my Ubuntu system the screen resolution defaults to 1280x1024. My preferred desktop resolution is normally set at 1680x1050. So each time I log in I have to open the Nvidia control panel and manually set the screen resolution to 1680x1050. Even after logging out it will still go right back to 1280x1024 when I log back in.

But the funny this is I am almost positive the login screen resolution is 1680x1050 because the picture is crisp unlike the blurry and distorted picture at 1028x1024. I have tried everything from manually editing the x.org conf file to running the Nvidia control panel as root. Nothing saves my preferred resolution of 1680x1050. My Nvidia driver is version 190.42 and Ubuntu version is 9.04. The monitor is an ASUS VW192T+ which is detected by the Nvidia driver.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Loading NVIDIA Driver With Live CD Boot?

Mar 15, 2010

I bought a new NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT video card for this PC recently and now whenever I boot Ubuntu 9.10 Live I can't change the screen resolution from 640 X 480. I get this message to the effect that the driver is restricted and not free software. When I try to download it and use it it says I can only activate it after a reboot, but I guess it means after rebooting an installation of Ubuntu, not the live cd since it never takes.

Ubuntu recommends NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver 185, so I went to NVIDIA's web site and downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run (and NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run since I think it's the newest, at least when I enter GeForce 6 Series and Linux 32-bit in the driver download search it's what comes up). I noticed that at the beginning menu of the Ubuntu 9.10 Live cd, when you press F4, the option to load from a driver disk is there. I was hoping this means I could just put one or both of the above files on a cd, insert it into the other disk drive and select that option.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Videos Won't Play After Nvidia Driver Install

May 9, 2010

I have an Asus ul30vt with the Intel 4500MHD/Nvidia G210M hybrid graphics. I finally found a way to get the Nvidia card to work. I followed these instructions [URL] and now my nvidia card is working. Now though I can't play a single video through the movie player that comes with Lucid 64bit or VLC. I have tried various movies in different formats and different resolutions, both hd and sd. Every video just shows a black screen with sound in the background.

EDIT: I set the output on vlc to X11 and now my videos play but 720p is p little choppy sometimes and 1080p is completely unplayable. Using the Intel card 720p was perfect and 1080p wasn't nearly as choppy but still not really watchable. So something must be messed up because this card should play a lot better than the Intel.
