Currenly, I'm dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.10 64bit on my ASUS K55VD.
I can't or won't completely ditch Windows 7 unless the video card is installable on my Ubuntu partition.
I can't make the best of my laptop or use it's full features if video card is not detected and installed.
Last time, on my old laptop, ASUS K43SV, it's video card is also not detected on older versions of Ubuntu. But with the release of Ubuntu 12.04 and the later 12.10, video card is not detected and can be installed via additional drivers.
My wife is now using my K43SV and so I bought a new one for me, K55VD.
Currently, existing Ubuntu versions are not able to detect the video card I have on my new laptop. Should I wait for the next version of Ubuntu before my video is detected and installable?
Currently, Ubuntu only detected Intel video card on this laptop, no NVIDIA card.
Also, on Windows 7, Intel driver is required to install first before installing the NVIDIA driver. NVIDIA driver won't even install if Intel driver is installed first, on Windows 7. Don't know why.
Is it possible that it's also the same reason why NVIDIA is not detected on Ubuntu? Currently, Intel is detected and installed on Ubuntu 12.10 64bit (as it has 4gb RAM) but NVIDIA is not.
Does anyone have the same machine and was able to install NVIDIA drivers? Can someone share their methods on how to install it?
