    I couldn't have written it better. Thumbs up!

    Re: [HOWTO] Install NVIDIA drivers manually on Lynx

    I did like to thank all the help this thread has provided me. I would also like to add that this line

    sudo apt-get --purge remove xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

    was crucial for getting past the nvidia kernel not being able to run problem. I can now finally get back to doing work!

    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    blacklist vga16fb
    blacklist nouveau
    blacklist rivafb
    blacklist nvidiafb
    blacklist rivatv

    (remember last space)

    sudo gdm-stop
    sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-*

    RESTART

    (after this ubuntu boots with some graphical errors like white lines and incorrect resolution)

    sudo gdm-stop
    sudo apt-get --purge remove xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

    RESTART

    (after this, ubuntu boots with no graphical errors BUT CANT GET INTO TERMINAL with gdm stopped so cant install nvidia drivers)

    So heres the tricky part

    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-framebuffer.conf

    and you need to comment 'blacklist vesafb' and add 'blacklist vgafb16' (both without quotes)

    sudo nano /etc/initramfs-tools/modules

    and add 'fbcon' and 'vesafb' (dont forget last space)

    sudo update-initramfs -u

    sudo nano /etc/default/grub

    search for 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=' and ADD (dont delete) vga=771 or 795 (according to your resolution)

    sudo update-grub

    RESTART

    sudo gdm-stop

    now can enter terminal and install NVIDIA drivers. and they will install without errors.

    Re: [HOWTO] Install NVIDIA drivers manually on Lynx

    "6) When an error message pops up saying that Ubuntu cannot load Nvidia drivers, choose Exit to terminal (Exit to console)
    7) Login and cd to the directory where you saved your file"

    I exit to console just fine but it brings me to a black screen where i log in. from there what does cd to the directory mean. i saved the file on my desktop.

    When i sudo gdm- start it sends me to the same screen as if i were to exit to console.

    help!!

    sudo gdm-stop does not work while in the black window

    Try one of combinations:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop (start)
    sudo gdm-stop (start)
    sudo service gdm stop (start)
    For me to stop I need tu use gdm-stop and to start I use service gdm start...


    PS - You made space in your gdm-stop above. That's important as that might be reason (!)

    That's quite unclear what you write. You need to know basic linux commands (like cd, ls, sh, sudo, etc. etc. etc.) if you want to install driver that way.

    Man pages and google is your friend for that.
