    Re: 12.04 nvidia drivers? Compiz test failed.

    Just as a quick update, I was able to successfully get the 302.07 installer to run. It has improved things somewhat, though not entirely. I suppose I'll keep an eye on how the 295.49 driver seems to be working for folks and consider switching to that if it's working well.

    As best I can tell, the 302.07 beta driver has the same fixes as 295.49 plus a number of other changes. Both should solve the issues casued by the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS included 295.40 driver. I just installed the 295.49 release driver over the 302.07 beta driver and everything works fine on my system.

    If these don't work, the old drivers should probably be uninstalled before installing the new ones.

    Re: 12.04 nvidia drivers? Compiz test failed.

    So, just to be sure:
    System Settings > Additional Drivers lists the new drivers once they are installed?

    If you run System Testing (tap the super key ant type "test" to see it), selecting only "graphics test" the result is "PASSED"?


    By the way...
    The additional driver tab states:
    3D-accelerated proprietary graphics driver for NVIDIA cards. Required if you want to run Unity.

    This driver is required to fully utilise the 3D potential of NVIDIA graphics cards, as well as provide 2D acceleration of newer cards.

    You need to install this driver if you wish to use the Unity desktop, enable desktop effects, or run software that requires 3D acceleration, such as some games.
    At the moment I have two PCs running unity with no nvidia drivers...
    now I'll install the 295.49 on the desktop PC, see you soon (I hope)

    Update:
    During the installation procedure a message said something like "the pre-intall script failed, do you want to install anyway?"
    I stopped...

    Don't stop at the pre-install script failed message. Keep going. It always says that when I install from the .run files. I have no idea why, but the drivers themselves install fine.

    Neither the beta 302.07 nor the new 295.49 driver brought me any luck on my GeForce 7050/nForce 610i. Luckily reverting to 295.33 helped.

    Yeah, ultimately none of the drivers, including 295.33, resolved this for me. Still running too hot, still crashing compiz with attempts to start any applications (and in fact just from calling up the dash). Even in 2d it's averaging about 90C and I've got certain actions that cause momentary hangs. I'm starting to think my issue may be hardware. Lucky for me gaming culture demands so many iterations that the price of perfectly adequate hardware for my needs drops quickly.

    Took out the 8400 and put in a 210 and all is well, so the fixes in this thread may still be effective for people if their hardware's not worn out.

    As for me, I am back in 3d and back under 50 degrees!

    Outstanding! How do you like the 210?

    So far it's been great, very impressed. Haven't put it through its paces yet, but it's standing up to my normal use just fine.

    Re: 12.04 nvidia drivers? Compiz test failed.

    Hi folks.. I plugged in replaced an extra hard drive...

    Installed 12.04 off of a pen drive - initial use "crazy behavior" connected to the Internet this morning...

    updated to 3.024; observed that the proprietary drivers became available...

    chose to see what this " nouveau" does or not..

    Seems to me to working very well??? Unity Cairo 3D all working well???

    So upgrade is mis-behaving.

    anyway should |I flip to the Nvidia drivers the easy flip path would be to activate the additional drivers icon
    pick one; 173 then proceed with the above...

    Or do the Black list process...

    So my conclusion is; "Nouveau" works very well here... in 3D with a fresh install..

    Glenn
