I am using Ubuntu 12.10. Nvidia GTX 570 card. Intel core i7 CPU.
Now running Nouveou. Tried everything installing the latest drivers: Stable, beta, from the additional software dialogue (WITH NO SUCCESS) and also from x-swat.
Also tried this guide/script http://ubuntuxtreme.com/howto/nvidia...taller-script/(which also just uses x-swat)
Every time, and I mean every time - It installs and then reboots and the driver is not active (also stated when I run nvidia-settings; this then tells me to run nvidia-xcofig and reboot, but this doesn't help either). I have awefully low resolution as as stated, running nvidia-xconfig doesn't help. Sometimes I even don't have window borders... I am pulling out my hair!
I have to do this in between each failed attempt to just get the nouveou drivers working again:
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
