Recently installed ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop pc.
The graphics card is nVidia geforce FX 5200.
So, I wanted to install nvidia's drivers for everything to work smoothly.
Followed these instructions
Then I went to additional drivers. nVidia current is there, so I activated it and rebooted. After reboot resolution was like 640x480 (native is 1920x1020). So I did this
sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-video-all
Resolution got a bit better, but still no good.
I opened nvidia x server settings, but it says 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.
After nvidia-xconfig nothing changes.
In Details it says graphic driver is VESA: NV34 Board - p162-1nz
Nouveau drivers are deleted, read in other topics, that it has to be deleted to enable nvidia's drivers.
Anyway, I guess the problem is that the driver isn't enabled, but how to do it?
Any help would be appreciated!
