    It looks like you are missing GLX. Are you running the recommended experimental nvidia drivers installed using Additional Drivers, or the default nouveau video drivers?

    This command should return something like this:
    Code:

    Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold

    I use the experimental driver from Ubuntu store called "Experimental NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library".

    Is that an Optimus thing?
    None but ourselves can free our minds

    A search on google says it's an optimus card, so you can't use the regular driver. You need to get the Bumblebee driver for that.


    EDIT: forget what I said, there's a guide on CUDA cards here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/13150...a-discrete-car
