Ubuntu Multimedia :: Updating NVidia Driver Not Working, Tried Manual, Not Working?

Sep 18, 2010

I installed it on a Dell Inspiron 531 with the GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 built in video card. From the recommend driver list I installed �NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended

Well, turns out it should not have been recommended. I had restarted and all I got was a low res ubuntu logo and a boot right into a full screen terminal. Tried startx and got a no screens found, I look online for about an hour last night and decided to just reinstall, which takes a couple hours when installing all the packages.

I have done more research today and found to install the latest linux x64 driver from nVidias website, which I did, but it does not run. I followed some more instructions and it said to do a �sudo chmod +x <file>� which I did, and it starts to open and I get �You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing.�

I�m starting to get a little frustrated here, guess I�m just used to a lot of the ease of windows and assumed that something like installing a graphics card driver would be easy.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVidia Card Not Working On Lucid 64 Bit?

Apr 28, 2010

I'm doing an install for a friend, the machine is a Gateway with AMD Turion64. The install required the 64 bit version of Lucid 10.04 RC. When I try to install the NVIDIA hardware driver, upon reboot, it flickers, fails, and tells me to use low-setting graphics mode.

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 :: NVidia Driver - Force TV Out Not Working

Nov 26, 2010

I used Gefoce9400GT , 190.53 nvidia driver, configuring Mulitiple X screen both CRT and TV, work fine if CRT and TV connected to card, but I hope foce TV-out output signal, means that if not connected to TV, the SVIDEO can output signal. Because the line too far, cannot detect TV connection, so I think foce output TV-out signal. I used Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV". Can force found 2 display device, have 2 screen ok, but not display at TV if not connected TV. I do not understand why the TV has been forced output signal does not display images, they can be connected to the TV show?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Sound Not Working With NVidia ION Drivers

Jun 4, 2010

I have a zotac IONITX motherboard with HDMI video. The video seems fine, but I haven't been able to get the sound working through the HDMI cable. Even the little speaker at the top is gone. It was working fine when I had speakers hooked to the motherboard. I have installed the latest 256 driver from nvidia. If I run 'aplay -l' I get this:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]
Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
lspci -v gives :

Memory at fae78000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]

Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

I don't know if this is important, but I noticed that it says its running an intel driver for my nvidia sound. Could this be the problem and if so, How do I fix it? Also, if I click on system->preferences->sound it comes up with a dialog box that says that its waiting for the sound system to come up. Why I am not getting any HDMI sound or even the little speaker icon at the top?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Closed NVIDIA Driver Not Working / Solve This?

Feb 12, 2011

I'm trying to get a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 working with the closed Nvidia driver, as I would like to get the HDMI output working.

I have a Sony Vaio VPCCW18FX, with a Nvidia GT 230M graphics card. The open source nouveau driver works fine, but does not run smoothly. The only problem here is that it's needed to run with "nomodeset".

If i just activate the Proprietary Nvidia driver and reboot, it will hang after writing "Checking battery State [ok]". I have tried to add EDID from Windows partition, and here it hangs at a blank black/grey screen. I have tried hooking up an external display, no output on it either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Driver Not Working With Kernel 2.6.35-27 / Getting Error?

Mar 11, 2011

I am running the newest Nvidia driver from nvidia.com, version 260.19.44. The built in proprietary Nvidia driver does not work properly.

Recently ubuntu was updated to a newer kernel 2.6.35.27 from 2.6.35.25. Under 2.6.35.25 the driver is working. Under 2.6.35.27 the desktop is not starting, and I can login to a 'console'. After login i try to run startx, and gets some errors. See attached Xorg.0.log.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 1080p Video Playback Working With NVidia Ion And Lucid?

Jun 6, 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. Do you or does someone you know have the same setup as I do? If so, do they have 1080p video playback working? If so, what driver are they using? I've tried following every guide I could find, but no luck so far. I have libvdpau1 and libvdpau-dev installed. I have the nvidia 195.36.24 driver installed (I used the nvidia installer). I have mplayer installed (which I compiled from source with --enable-vdpau).

I try to run mplayer with this command:
Code:
mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau path/to/myfile.mkv

I get the following message in my terminal:
Code:
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
I have libvdpau-dev and libvdpau1 installed.

After Googling this problem, I found a post that suggested the following steps:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nvidia-vdpau
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-195 nvidia-195-modaliases

It turns out that I had already added the nvidia-vdpau repository. However, despite that, I get:
Code:
E: Couldn't find package nvidia-glx-195
The same problem exists for the nvidia-195-modaliases package. Do these packages exist? Is there some other way to get them?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Connexant / NVidia Audio Just Randomly Stopped Working?

Mar 18, 2011

My Compaq Presario F739WM laptop has a Connexant HD Audio/NVidia MCP51 (reported by lspci) sound card.Ubuntu has always supported the card with no problem except the random popping noise but then I found a work around for that.Now for some reason, when I first turn on my computer and at login screen I can hear Ubuntu noises, yet seems once I login, no more sound or sometimes the successfully logged in sound.

The only changes that I have since the sound worked, was I installed pulseaudio but that caused no problems with that. The other change was a few kernel upgrades and other packages through normal update manager.I have checked that snd_hda_intel driver was loaded in the kernel and in alsa, all seems well.Pulse detects audio output in it's meter.I also tested the sound card to make sure it wasn't bad, in Windows 7 (dual boot) and it wokrs perfectly.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Dual Monitor Support Working In Unity With NVIDIA?

Jun 21, 2011

I have an NVIDIA 9800 GTX. I have 2 DELL monitors connect to this card, one is a 24" and the other is 21".

I am unable to use Xinerama mode with Unity, because for some reason after logging in, I get no desktop interface, only background wallpaper, and I have to force reboot.

How can I setup dual monitors in Ubuntu using Unity properly? Note that I do NOT want to use TwinView, since this results in dead space around the smaller monitor.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: New Install Killed Dual Monitors - Nvidia Setup Not Working ?

Sep 14, 2010

I've just installed 10.04 on an old system.

Hardware is:

- NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT video card
- Gigabyte EP35C-DS3R motherboard with 3 gig ram, few TB of hard-drive
- dual monitors, both viewsonic vx2235wm, primary on analog, secondary on digital (but whatever, happy to reverse the order)

On the old setup (8.04) the monitors were set up as twinview, 1680x1050 each, no problems. On the new setup (10.04) my old xorg.conf (see below) doesn't work and nvidia xserver settings refuses to detect my second (digital) monitor at any resolution greater than 640x480.

I've tried messing with xorg.conf to no avail and google doesn't appear to be my friend.

Here's the old xorg.conf file that worked in 8.04 but refuses to even boot under 10.04:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia GT210 Sound Only In Stereo And Couldn't Get It Working In XBMC

Jun 7, 2011

I am at the end of my tether in trying to get sound setup on my Ubuntu installation. I have tried many different 'fixes' that people have suggested, but none seem to work!

My setup is as follows:
> HP Proliant Microserver
> Ubuntu 10.10
> Zotac GT210 card
> HDMI from GFX card to AV amp
> 5GB Ram

What I want to be able to do is:

> Play music from FLAC files I have ripped in either stereo or sudo 5.1
> Play DVD iso files that I have ripped in the audio format found on the original discs (DTS etc)

I have managed to get sound working before, but only in stereo and I couldn't get it working in XBMC (not the sound from the main movie I chose anyway). I have since completely broken the sound after trying various things found on the interweb and cannot get it back.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Experimental Nvidia Working In Recovery Mode But Not After Normal Boot

Jun 28, 2011

I tried to make Compiz work using the experimental 3D support of the free Nvidia driver, because I am suffering from a bug in the proprietary driver (click here for launchpad entry). The free driver I mean is the one that shows up as "Experimental 3D support for NVIDIA cards" in the "Additional Drivers" manager (note: for some reason, this option will only present itself when no proprietary driver is currently active).

Now the strange thing is: the driver does not provide 3d support, and behaves generally awful (lots of glitches and so on) when I boot my system normally. But when instead I boot from the grub menu into recovery mode, then select "failsafe graphics", and then select "restart X", the whole thing works perfectly! So now I am running the experimental 3d driver, I have compositing working, 3d animations on docky. Somehow, the failsafe boot sequence does something right that my normal boot sequence does not. When I reboot in normal mode, everything is screwed up again.

I have no idea what statistics about my system I should include here, because I really have no idea what could possibly be wrong. I am running 32bits Natty in Classic mode, on an Ahtlon Dual Core 4850e machine, with a GeForce 6150 LE graphics card. These are the normal and recovery entries in my grub.cfg:

Code:

menuentry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38-8-generic-pae' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
recordfail
set gfxpayload=$linux_gfx_mode
insmod part_msdos

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia Driver Not Working With External Monitor?

Mar 15, 2010

I have a Dell XPS M1330, which has a GeForce 8400M GS GPU. The binary (sigh) nVidia driver installed is version 190.53 (installed by sgfxi). This is working well: glxgears gives me about 2600 FPS and compiz is happy.An old Philips 170B is attached by VGA cable. I was looking to set up a method of switching resolution upon connecting to the monitor when working at the desk, since I don't like the 1280x800 resolution of the laptop.

nfortunately, I can't get any output on the external monitor. It does work under Ubuntu, which installed the 180 series binary driver. (Going to an earlier driver is an option, but I want to understand the problem.) Bottom line, I want to work under Debian.As far as I know, nVidia's proprietary driver doesn't support xrandr. At any rate, with he external 170B monitor attached and turned on, I get the following:$ xrandr -qScreen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm

1280x80050.0*

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'. 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 :: Cannot Get 10.04 Working With Nvidia 8400 GS?

Jun 12, 2010

This is my first post and I am relatively new to Ubuntu, please be gentle

I am running Ubuntu 10.04.
Hardware is as follows:
D945GCLF2
2GB Ram 667Mhz
120GB WD Drive
External USB DVD-Rom

I can install and run the OS perfectly with this setup. Once I add an Nvidia 8400GS Video Card via PCI, the system will no longer boot into the OS. I also get errors when trying to boot into the Live CD as well. I will copy the error message details over at a future date because currently this is my only working system. They did have something to do with low level memory corruption or some such with a warning about potential BIOS corruption. Once the 8400GS is removed, the system will boot normally if a bit slower than normal (on first boot after removal).

Ubuntu :: NVidia Twinview Not Working?

Jun 17, 2010

I have no idea what to do to get Twinview to work. I had found a bit of code to paste into the xorg.conf file but after I pasted it in and restarted my computer, but it wouldn't boot up. Whenever I open up the "Monitors" dialog under System>Preferences, it doesn't even see that the second monitor is there! It doesn't matter if I go to the default tool or if I go to nVidia's tool. On the nVidia tool, under X "Server Display Configuration", there is a button "Configure...", when I press it, it asks "How should this display be configured?". The options "Twinview" and "Disabled" are both unselectable and the only one that I can select is "Separate X Screen". It's almost like my computer doesn't know that I have a second monitor plug.

I am running Ubuntu 10.04.

My xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Device"
Identifier "nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NvAGP" "1"

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Drivers Not Working Right On 10.04

Dec 5, 2010

I just did what i did below reinstalled them and seems to be working again. I installed the drivers then updated my ubuntu install (fresh install) which i read in another thread that if something updates the kernel or whatever it seems to below out your nvidia install on 10.04 and 10.10 i think if i remember right.

Ok so i haven't been using ubuntu in a very long time. Seen 10.04 lts came out and decided to wander back (xp is just getting to old and seems to be getting more and more sluggish everytime i upgrade to newer and newer hardware lol think no one is really supporting it anymore or barely and i'm to dam cheap to buy 7 lol)

anyway so i downloaded the newest geforce drivers from nvidia.

I followed instructions i had seen on here can't find the thread now.

anyway I shut down nouveau or whatever its called.

Then i did a alt+ctrl+F1

cd Desktop

tried using sudo service gdm stop but it don't work so i did sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop that worked but recommends the way that won't work above lol least for me.

Then i had the nvidia driver on my desktop so i did sudo sh N (then tab) enter. it started the driver up said it could not install the application or something i forget eh i'll find out but asked if i would like to continue. I said yes and installed the driver everything seems somewhat ok after that then i restart my machine and bam says i'm in low graphics mode now, and my x-server for nvidia don't have any options in it at all to modify anything....

I'm using NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.21.run Nvidia driver i have should i try the older one? if i can find it 250 something i think it was?

Just curious if there is another method i can try to get a driver in. I don't like using old drivers i tend to like the hot new stuff either beta or latest solid release.

Ubuntu :: Nvidia GTX 460 Drivers In 10.10 Not Working?

Jan 18, 2011

I just upgraded to 10.10 from 10.04. I used to have a manual install of the nvidia drivers configured (by downloading binary from Nvidia website) but right before I upgraded I used nvidia-uninstall to remove it. Upon rebooting into 10.10 I went to Additional drivers and activated nvidia-current. After I rebooted I still had no driver, so I looked in the Additional Drivers pane again. It says Nvidia-current is activated but not currently in use. Then I went to a terminal and typed:

sudo nvidia-xconfig. Thinking it would reconfigure X to work with my 460, however it instead said: command not found What's going on here?

General :: Nvidia - Get TV-OUT Working

Jul 16, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04LTS installed and want to get TV-OUT working so I can watch movies and stream media from the internet to my TV. The hardware I have installed is:

Nvidia GeForce2 mx400
TV is an old analogue CRT one

I know its an old graphics card and TV but the whole computer is put together from spares I have knocking around. So I have Ubuntu installed and the Nvidia proprietary drivers installed, version 96. Through the nvidia-settings application I have managed to get a picture in colour onto my TV screen, but the problem is there is about a 2 inch black boarder around the screen and also like a grey shadow over the entire screen. So I tried the NVTV application, the same thing happened again with the black boarders around the screen but the grey shadow over the entire screen had gone, so the black boarders are actually black and the colours show up properly.

So is there a way to get rid of the black boarders and grey shadow (if it decides to show up again), I am a total newb to Ubuntu but loving it so far and this is the only problem I am stump on so far. This is my X Config FIle I have with all the settings I have to get to the above point:
