Hi,

I dont know what to do with my graca problem on ubuntu (im new but i love it ;-)

On my win7 I first need to install the intel HD graphic driver and than my nvidia driver.
How can i do this on xubuntu?
I think now its using some other driver.
I now get error:

"You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server."

I tried the additional driver search but he doesnt find anything.
Can someone help me pls with this.

thx in advance

You need to state the exact model of PC..
But this sounds like optimus graphics..

The best intel driver is included with ubuntu. Sometimes you need a later build from xorg-edgers..

To utilise optimus graphics on linux you have to use Ironhide or bumblebee.

Do not manually install the nVidia driver, let Ironhide do it..
