    Just type 'Nvidia' at the dashboard prompt, unless something is wrong, the settings icon will show up.
    Good luck.

    Re: NVidea Dashboard Command

    I was afraid you would say something like that, I've treid installing various drivers, and all have led to a very ugly boot screen, which all have led to yet another reinstall of Ubuntu on my hard drive. I have found information at this site, just haven't tried it yet as I'm really tired of having to reload Ubuntu for the upteeth jillion time.

    Plenty more to play with here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html


    Remember' at least in MHO open source and Nvidia are mutually exclusive beasts.

    The instructions are for Ubuntu 10.04, not 13.04. You will probably break your system if you try.

    nvidia-settings is the command.

    you can even manipulate the settings via command line.
    look at
    Code:
    man nvidia-settings
    If it says no manual entry then install it
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings

    Right...10.04. But at this point, it doesn't matter if I break my system, because I already have broke my system time and time again, and reloaded the system time and time again. I've tried multiple drivers with NVidia, and nothing seems to work, been working on it now for about two months...really annoying.

    Re: NVidea Dashboard Command

    Code:
    man nvidia-settings
    In Mint, there is an X.org application which is similar to the NVidiea dashboard used in Windows. It's odd that I can not find this application in the Ubuntu software store, but it is the Mint Software store. I visited the developers website hoping I could find some code to install the application in Ubuntu, but I did not see anything like that.
    Has anybody been succesfull in installing the application in Ubuntu?
    Thanks
