    Ubuntu 10.04 and Nvidia cards

    Hello everyone. I am having a big problem. I just installed the newest Ubuntu, 10.04 I believe the number is. It found my video card driver without a problem. it asks me to reboot. I reboot, and I get an error telling me that Ubuntu has to run in low graphics mode. So then, when I open the software for my graphics card, I get this...

    You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.

    I do not know what to do in order to fix this. Can anyone please help me? Thanks.

    on top panel, goto system --> admin --> synaptic and search for nvidia

    you might have these packages installed:

    - nvidia-current
    - nvidia-common
    - nvidia-current-modaliases

    as lucid dont need xorg.conf by default, into console run:

    sudo rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    reboot

    then goto system --> admin --> hardware driver, to see if nvidia-current is activated, you should have now your full resolution.

    Try this from a terminal ~$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

    After it installs reboot again.

    Similar symptoms.

    In Kernel 2.6.32 I'm stuck with lower resolution graphics with the "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver..."

    In Kernel 2.6.31 I get the chance to reset my graphics configuration. After doing that I get full 1920 x 1200 resolution. I also show no proprietary drivers in use after a restart.

    Thank you. Unfortunately, it is still not working. I was so hoping I would be able to get Ubuntu working with this new version

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure jockey
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-current

    watch .xsession-errors and logs (system - admin - log viewer)

    I got an error saying that jockey was not installed. The other command went through, but still, my graphics is not working.

    I looked up Jockey, and I do indeed have it, so not sure why I got that error. Time for bed for me. If anyone else has any other ideas, I would really appreciate it. It looks like I might have to bite the bullet, and just go and buy Windows 7.

    why not get the latest driver from Nvidia site. Stop GDM and login as root (cli) and install. Restart GDM and login as normal
