    cannot install jockey on lubuntu

    I want to try to install a correct nvidia driver for my sistem.
    I own an asus s56c ultrabook with Lubuntu 12.10 amd64.

    I ran
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install jockey-gtk jockey-common
    Then I cannot see any icon of jockey in the start menu and there is not desktop launcher called jockey in /usr/share/applications.

    If I run
    Code:
    $ jockey-gtk
    The program "jockey-gtk" is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
    sudo apt-get install jockey-gtk
    but
    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install jockey-gtk
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    jockey-gtk is already the newest version
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    and
    Code:
    $ jockey-text
    ERROR:root:Could not find any typelib for AppIndicator3
    Additional Drivers
    Searching for available drivers...
    So:
    is there any chance to have jockey working on Lubuntu?
    Otherwise how can I know which nvidia driver I have to install?

    On Ubuntu 12.10 the additional drivers are located in software sources > additional drivers . I don't know if that is the case with Lubuntu though.

    Re: cannot install jockey on lubuntu

    Thanks for trying!
    Jockey is not installed by default on Lubuntu and I cannot find it after having manually installed it.
    I found this is a problem Quetzal at
    http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/u...al-nvidia.html
    where the author advises not to use jockey ayway to automatically install nvidia drivers.

    So, being my main aim to install latest nvidia driver on my sistem I opened a new thread on that

    Thank you

    Re: cannot install jockey on lubuntu

    You should not install the nvidia driver on a hybrid/Optimus GPU system (the nvidia driver will prevent the Intel graphics from working properly, which is why Additional Drivers doesn't offer it). Instead, remove the nvidia driver:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge nvidia-current
    sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Then, follow: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee
