View Full Version : [ubuntu] NVIDIA OpenGL

September 19th, 2009, 02:36 PM
An hour ago I was viewing my setting and noticed 3D Acceleration wasn't working on my machine but OpenGL was. I thought I could solves this through installing drivers for NVIDIA from their website, which caused a lot of problems.

I un-installed the nvidia 1.80 drivers from my ubuntu and was back to my old setting which made me happy, but now when I check my settings 3D Acceleration is enabled & OpenGL DirectDraw is failing =/

Only thing that I can think of is that I've installed over the ubuntu nvidia drivers and then when I've un-installed it, I've removed something which shouldn't of been removed :(

I would really appreciate quick and simple answers as I'm currently running the internet of a USB Broadband (Just moved house), and while it has around 9GB left on it, its works.
