    Ubuntu Nvidia Driver 319.23

    Hello,

    This is my first post, so I hope this is in the right section of the forums.

    Basically, I've just installed Ubuntu 13.04 on my laptop and everything is running perfect - except I just cannot get the latest Nvidia drivers (319.23) to work. I've tried various guides of the internet and they all seem to end in the same way - which to sum it up, is the lack of unity starting. I get no bars on windows or anything, just a desktop and any file that happens to be on their and if I install the official Nvidia .run file off of the website I get the same lack of Unity, but also the res is changed to 800x600.

    Also going to the "additional Drivers" section of Ubuntu software center doesn't work because there are no Nvidia drivers listed - It just says my machine is not using any proprietary drivers.

    I've used this guide for the official Nvidia .run driver file: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2081649

    I'm not really and expert with Ubuntu but I really like the OS and would like to keep using it, however I want to try get my Nvidia GT635m to be used rather than my HD3000 cause I have a few steam games I like to play and now I can use Linux I don't want to go back to Windows!

    Re: Ubuntu Nvidia Driver 319.23

    If the Additional Drivers application doesn't see the NVIDIA card, chances are good this is "hybrid" machine with both an Intel and an NVIDIA card. Search in the BIOS to see if you can disable the Intel adapter and try again.

    You might also look into the Bumblebee Project which is designed to work with these kinds of hybrid machines.
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    Re: Ubuntu Nvidia Driver 319.23

    Hello!

    Yeah it is, on Windows i can switch between the Intel HD3000 and the Nvidia GT635m depending on what I'm doing, by default Ubuntu seems ot be using my HD3000 but that's no good for gaming. I tried Bumbleebee, but have no real idea how to install it properly along with the latest Nvidia 319.23 drivers. This is where I'm completely stuck =/

    As for the BIOS, I have one of the laptops that doesnt have an option to disable to Intel one sadly =/ - For teh record my laptop is an Asus N55SL

    You will be interested in these links

    http://www.webupd8.org/2013/04/set-u...bumblebee.html

    They are both just under 2 months old.

    Re: Ubuntu Nvidia Driver 319.23

    Hello!

    I have read both links, the first one gives me some Nvidia drivers, however since then newer ones have been released - the ones in that link are 319.12 and the current ones are 329.23, also It doesn't tell me how to install them. As for the second link it tells me how tio install the window manager, but not how to install BumbleBee and the Nvidia drivers =/

    Thank you for the help though - installing and getting these drivers to work is being to get a pain the backside!

    Check out my blog. I have made a pretty good walkthrough for bumblebee. http://orkultus.wordpress.com

    Re: Ubuntu Nvidia Driver 319.23

    I stumbled upon this thread, and I dont seem to have my Nvidea working either. I read (and followed the steps) the blog which Orkultus, but it tells me no Bumble Bee found, and this is where I get lost.
    The system is an older HP Pavilion running Windows 7 Pro on the internal C:drive. I am currently running 13.04 on an external drive. I'm open to suggestions?

    I did run the basic bumble Bee install, Thanks for the help

    Code:
    charles@GUZZLR:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable
    [sudo] password for charles: 
    You are about to add the following PPA to your system:
     Bumblebee Stable PPA
    
    Installation instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee
    
    To report issues, please read http://wiki.Bumblebee-Project.org/Reporting-Issues
    
    You may use any nvidia driver flavor, like -updates, -experimental or -nnn ones.
    
    After installation, reboot to let changes apply.
    
    To see if it works, run during around 30s: glxspheres
    Then, run it with optirun, and compare: optirun glxspheres
    
    If you want to use primus, you need to install it and set Bridge=primus in bumblebee.conf or use optirun -b primus. You also need to install primus-libs-ia32 if you want to run 32-bit apps.
    
    Be aware that as Bumblebee is using low-level hardware informations, it is impossible to run it in a VM.

    Re: Ubuntu Nvidia Driver 319.23

    If your system is older does it still have Optimus or dual video? That is relatively new.
    If not. you do not want Bumblebee, but just the nVidia driver if you have the nVidia chip or card.

    Re: Ubuntu Nvidia Driver 319.23

    It probably does not have Optimus, this computer is about 4 years old now. The problems I have after the above procedures are:
    1. I can not activate my second monitor, Linux does not see it
    2. I can not set my laptop resolution to 16:9, only 4:3 is offered; thus, making the secreen lengthwise distorted.
    Thanks for the help
