View Full Version : [ubuntu] Some little problems

April 23rd, 2008, 05:48 AM
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.

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.
