Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Use Nvidia GeForce 8200 Driver On 11.04?
May 28, 2011
I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Emachine Er1402-05, Wireless works fine, but not the grahics Emachine Er1402-05 has a nVidia GeForce 8200 graphics card. The problem is that after installation it only support resolution upto 1024x768, while my LCD has native resolution at 1600x900. I have installed the most recent nvidia driver $sudo apt-get install nvidia-current However, I was not able to config it:
$ sudo nvidia-xconfig
sudo: nvidia-xconfig: command not found
I was not able to install the package.
$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-xconfig

I am a recruit for Linux and install FC12 on my PC. The motherboard is ASUS M3N78-CM. The nvidia GeForce 8200 chipset on the motherboard is directlt used for vedio. The driver : NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.42-pkg2.run is downloaded from Nvidia website, but it can't drive the chipset successfully. So i can not start X-window. If anyone has a solution to this problem?
In Fedora 13 with the kernel version of 220.127.116.11-56.fc13.x86_64, the NVidia driver of the version 256.53 was installed from rpmfusion repository. Everything works fine except for one problem: the brightness cannot be controlled from the power management programs in either KDE or Gnome. In Gnome, the scroll bar of brightness disappears, and, in KDE, the scroll bar cannot be dragged.
Since the computer with Fedora 13 and NVidia driver installed is Dell Studio One 19 (All-in-One computer) which has no hardware buttons to control screen display options at all, there is no other way to adjust the brightness of computer screen. The BIOS of the computer doesn't include an option to adjust screen brightness either. Since screen brightness is set at the maximum level when the computer is turned on, it is not possible to continue using the computer for a continuous period of time due to eyesight protection. Strangely enough, both the Nouveau driver included in xorg-x11-drv-nouveau 0.0.16-8.20100423git13c1043 from Xorg 7.4 and the driver included in the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental 7.8.1 support brightness adjustment without any glitches.
tried to install drivers for FX 5500 today, the one that Ubuntu recommended (173) and the current version (260). Both installs failed when it tried to set up python-support. Returned an exit status of "10". I don't know what that means. I could really use some help, because I just installed UT2K4, and without the driver, I can't play it. I'm running the latest release, as noted in the thread title. Dunno if it helps, but it was a clean install, because an alternate iso upgrade failed and mucked up 10.04.
i just instaled bt4 on my hdd and i have a problem with instaling drivers... i cant find and install driver for my video card nvidia 8200 integrated on motherboard. exacly i got the problem with changeing video resolution... i have only 640x480 and 800x600, and here is the problem, i cant put it in 1024x768..
I have an Acer 1200X with an Nvidia 8200 graphics GPU integrated on the motherboard. I have an HDMI and VGA output. I have downloaded the Nvidia graphics driver using envyNG and the old fashioned way. I have tried configuring the monitors 15 ways from Sunday in the configuration and I cannot for the life of me get dual monitors to work.
When I go into configuration with the Nvidia wizzard it blanks like its going to work then just stays black with the mouse cursor. I also cannot save as I get a "parsing" error. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and have even tried using envyNG to get the monitors to work on twinview... NOTHING Hope someone can help!
My dad who is a Linux nut came over to help and he left 3 hours later because were tempted to chuck the computer out the window...I need to figure this out as this is going to be my work computer and I need dual screens.
I have a problem with resume from ram on my hardware. I tried to install Karmic Alternate and Lucid Alternate (command line only). After resume I have no screen and the monitor is off. I also tried different pm-quirks, in combination too. I tried to install the nouveau driver on lucid but then the monitor is always off. I guess to install the nvidia-driver is no solution for a command line system?
In Linux, passing "pci=nomsi" to the kernel before it boots generally helps it "find the hard drive". In windows however, it wont even install. It loads all the components then when it says its starting Windows, it comes up with an error, just gives a code, no explanation. Now granted this has more to do with Windows then Linux but there is no forum for that here and this is related. I wanted to try and run some games that would not work under wine nor virtualbox, so i shrunk my partition to make room for XP and it wouldn't install. If you're just going to lecture me on the lack of need for windows please to not respond to this. The specific motherboard is:
My 4 yr old Dell XPS 400 has a nVidia GeForce 7300 LE card which won't run Unity as is. How do I determine without actually attempting to install 11.04 if there is an updated driver available that will allow this machine to run Unity?
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 18.104.22.168.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 22.214.171.124 kernel and header packages, but GRUB was apparently still booting to the 126.96.36.199 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 188.8.131.52 kernel via APT, then remove all the 184.108.40.206 kernel packages. That second operation triggered the 220.127.116.11 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 18.104.22.168 kernel, and had no option to boot to the 22.214.171.124 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.
install the driver for my GeForce GT 220. I'm using the latest Debian and here's what happens: I get out of X and run ./NVIDIA... .run. It then says that I lack the cc tool for gcc. If I update gcc, it says that the gcc version used to compile the kernel mismatch my gcc version. If I ignore that error, it says that it can't find my kernel source.
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.

I typed "su -l" and telinit 3. But "ERROR: You appear to be running an X server" is written. What I can install this driver as well? or how I can booting up the Fedora 14 in text mode?
I have just installed openSUSE 11.1 64 bit on my system. Subsequently registered to get an auto-update repo and auto-updated until no more updates were offered. Then I first tried YaST to install NVidia drivers from the NVidia repo (added their repo), but sax2 wouldn't recognize them. So I downloaded their 190. (beta) drivers, installed the kernel source code and gcc 4.3. Then I switched to a console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), closed the x server, ran the driver install as described (gcc 4.3 is installed). Installer said that all is fine (I checked the log to be sure). So I ran sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia, but the driver still isn't recognized.
the installation of the driver of the nvidia geforce GTS 250 fails. is it due to CENTOS or Nvidia driver?

Built a custom pc using a Gigabyte mobo and amd processor. Mobo has onboard video. Ubuntu Maverick installs fine using on board video but when I put in the Nvidia Geforce GT 240 I get either no video or scrambled video. I've tried disabling the on board video and still no luck. I've also tried to install nvidia drivers first, and will get it to work but video is not crisp and will not show all of the screen.
I'm running a Geforce FX 5900 Ultra with nvidias 173.14.27 driver. I'm running slackware 13.1 with kernel 126.96.36.199.
I get a horrible slowdown which is noticeable in emulators such as bsnes and kega fusion. I also think it's responsible for other issues that involve zsnes flickering like mad and hanging. Zsnes will actually crash if I select any filter plugins with opengl output modes.
Kega Fusion slows down to a crawl (we're talking 10 fps) immediately before loading a rom. Playing a rom makes it even slower.
Bsnes has the same kinda slowdown as kega fusion (even worse since it's so cpu intensive) when I activate scanlines or any type of output filter with opengl. Otherwise with no filters and just plain opengl it seems to run fast like it should...
Gens-GS doesn't seem to enable any filters in fullscreen mode... They work however in windowed mode with no slowdown issues...
I've compiled and installed SDL 1.3 from hg repository, then recompiled bsnes just to test it with newer SDL. Unfortunately the problem persists even with a newer SDL version which thankfully for me means I can revert to the older stock SDL without having to recompile everything else haha!
It's funny because I thought these issues were related to the emulators and not the video card drivers. I had these issues for a couple years running ubuntu and trying other distros. When I installed Slackware 13.1 I decided to try my Radeon 9700 pro and kega fusion no longer had this slowdown issue! I switched back to my Geforce and installed nvidia's drivers and immediately had slowdown issues... I'm gonna switch back to the radeon card and test the other emulators but otherwise it'd be nice to know if there's a solution to this issue...
Ok I installed my radeon card: nvidia-installer --uninstall, then updated xf86-video-ati from 6.13.0 to 6.13.2. Even though kega fusion runs fine I get even worse problems with everything else! LOL so I'm going back to my geforce card.
My graphic output is not that nice. How do I find out what kind of driver Centos is using? Can I fine-tune its performance? I tried to install the driver(NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1) from NVIDIA website but it failed. I got the following log file.

This is to request the communities assistance with the following: As the title suggests, I am attempting to install 10.04.2 LTS on a PC equipped with an ASUS M2NPV-VM mobo and integral NVidia GeForce 6150 chipset/card and AMD dual processors.
Result: While the CD with the installation software loads, the splash screen comes up distorted and is displayed as several black and white horizontal bars. I have tried this with low end monitors with a VGA input with the same results. It appears to me as if though the video driver on the installation CD is not suitable for the mobo's chipset, but I may be wrong.
I have a Macbook Pro which i want to install Opensuse 11.2 64bit(Upgrades to 11.3) The problem is that once i install opensuse and then boot via rEFIt, it loads up till the desktop is supposed to appear. All i get at this stage is darkness with a few coloured shapes in the background (Video driver not loaded).I can however reboot and go in via the failsafe option. Once in here i can use the GUI. I am a total noob with linux, can some one give me the instructions on how to install this driver. Its driving me insane. When i run uname -r, the results are 2.6.33-6-default I have added the following http repository (download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.2/)
I have finally managed to get the nvidia drivers for my dell vostro 1500 laptop
It has GeForce Nvidia 8400M GS graphics card.
I have installed them according to the guide given by Leigh123
Now that is done, i am not able to get the compiz working,i wanted to update to nvidia drivers as i wanted to get that fire and water effect, they are so cool, I came to know that it was beryl earlier but not beryl has been stopped and its compiz which has now taken over.
Fc12 comes with compiz in the live CD. System >> Preferences >> desktop effects >> check radio button compiz
The system freezes and then the bug reporting tool comes up. kindly let me know which log files to upload which may help you to determine the problem better.
I cannot get the restricted Nvidia drivers or the Nouveau drivers to work completely. If the Nouveau drivers are being used (after an "apt-get purge nvidia-*"), the text mode seems to work ok, but the X nouveau driver acts as if it cannot recognize the card. The only way I can get into X is to make sure I have the "nv" driver in the xorg.conf. I can then get into X normally.
If I install nvidia-current, the machine will just lock up at the splash screen. The Xorg.0.log file is zero bytes. I've checked and installing nvidia-current properly blacklists the nouveau drivers and I see no evidence in the messages file that the nouveau drivers tried to load in text mode. In fact, it shows the nvidia driver loading for console mode. I've tried the nouveau.modeset=0 kernel option as well, but that doesn't do anything. This is a fairly new nvidia card, maybe only a couple months old. I think it's been out for quite some time though. But it was working fine under Karmic with the restricted drivers. I really want to get this working as I need full support of the video card.
I've seen a lot of threads on this issue and combed through most of them trying to diagnose my problem and I've gotten REALLY close but with no complete success yet.I have a nVidia GeForce GTX 465 and I'm running HDMI out to my monitor. I have video but no audio. I can see the device in the Hardware tab of Sound Preferences but for the life of me I can't get it to play any audio (aside from testing with white noise).Output from aplay -l:

I have a 64 bit computer with a 64 bit distribution of Ubuntu. The driver for the onboard video card wasn't supported beyond 8.04, so I didn't upgrade. Yesterday, I bought a NVIDIA GeForce 210 video card. I installed it and Ubuntu detected it and worked, but the resolution was limited to 640x480 (I think). I figured this would be corrected by updating, so I updated to 9.04. When I had to restart, the option to select which OS (Linux or Win) came up, I selected 9.04, and the ubuntu symbol came on. The status bar went to the end and the screen turned black, flickered 5 times, turned black and stopped progressing. The xorg.conf file is:
