View Full Version : [ubuntu] NVIDIA "run" file
February 11th, 2011, 11:00 PM
I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-86_64-260.19.36.run
Now what do I do to install my geforce 9500GT on my 64 bit Ubuntu 10.10 installation.
With this vidio board installed 10.10 will not load. W/O the board installed the 10.10 installation works perfectly on the MB video VGA port.
This has been a stable dual monitor W7 machine for years; just trying to add Ubuntu on a separate HD

If you are unsure what you are doing it's best to use the proprietary driver provided in the ubuntu repositories.
System -> Administration -> Additional Drivers
This application will install any recommended proprietary drivers provided by the ubuntu repositories.
For the proprietary driver downloaded from nvidia. The NVIDIA*.run.
A bit of warning if you go about installing the NVIDIA*.run you should understand how to navigate and modify files from within a terminal. During the installation there may be steps where no desktop environment(graphical user interface) is loaded.

I chose to punt. The geforce 9500GT is surplussed.
Will a satisfied user please recommend their dual monitor video card, one that will load and run "transparently", directly, on my 64 bit Ubuntu 10.10 installation.
>$100 please. PCI express would be nice. No AGP.
