Some little problems
I'm a new user of linux. I've installed Ubuntu. It looks cool. But my audio (Realtek) and my graphics (nvidia 8600M GS) are not working.
I loaded Nuke on it. Its working fine. But the problem is the shortcut is on my desktop. its not in the Start menu. How to get it there.
Re: Some little problems
You need to install the restricted Nvidia drivers. There should be a icon near the top of your screen, looks like a card. That will launch the driver window. Then just tick off the Enable box, input your password, Ubuntu downloads the requisite drivers, and off you go.
The audio is a little more involved. Realtek... I'm assuming an AC97 chipset? Gutsy and Hardy automatically detected and used mine right out of the box.
