    Graphical drivers problem

    Hello everyone!

    My name is Pavel Angelov and I'm new with all linux things. I like web programming and I decided to learn some additional stuffs. For start i chose Ubuntu 12.10.

    I installed the Ubuntu, installed some updates, but when i tried to install my nvidia drivers (by apt-get install nvidia-current-updates, that i saw in a tutorial) my deck in left disappeared. So I'm asking for help - step by step. Do I need a fresh install of Ubuntu? Or what do i need? The PC is laptop - Acer V3-571G, Nvidia M630GT.

    Thanks in advance and good day to you

    Pavel =)

    Your computer has Nvidia Optimus.

    Take a look at this tutorial on how properly install the drivers in your situation.

    In 12.10 it is best to start installing this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
    Let us know how it goes.
    Regards.
