View Full Version : [gnome] I did a no-no, I guess

There were plenty of warnings, but I went ahead and installed the NIVIDIA driver.

Everything seems to work fine, but I cannot get mp3s, and other sound/graphics programs to make a single solitary noise.

I've searched for NIVIDIA but can't find it on my Ubuntu partition. Synaptic also doesn't find it. Neither does Add/Remove.

How do I undo my goof and get back to sounds again?

um, nVidia handles video, not sound. (unless i'm not aware of soemthing.)

Which driver did you install and how did you do it?

I went to SYSTEM-ADMINISTRATION-HARDWARE DRIVERS then activated the Nvidia driver.

From that on on (after resetting) no sound in Movie Player, etc. -- so I assumed . . .

I've done nothing else that I can recall.
