    X server doesn't start after nvidia-xconfig

    When I start Live CD, Unity is working.
    When I installed Ubuntu, Unity isn't working.
    NVIDIA accelerated graphics Driver is activated but not currently in use.
    I ran sudo nvidia-xconfig
    then I restarted X server by sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart
    but after that X server was not able to start.
    Here's a log from /var/log/Xorg.0.log :

    I have actually 2 graphics - NVidia and Intel (cause my CPU is Intel i5 ).
    Ubuntu 11.04.
    Hi, as far as the nividia card not in use, that is a bug and actually if you activated it, it is in use it just does not show it, so if you manually changed your x org server file just restore it with the back up you created before you changed the settings.

    Ubuntu 11.04.
    HI, have you also tried to restart ubuntu a couple of times because if it does not start right the first time, it has a feature that tries to fix the problem so it will start the next time, and the command you used for restarting x I am not sure that is the right one with unity.

    Re: X server doesn't start after nvidia-xconfig

    Try reinstalling the driver, "nvidia-current":
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-current
    If that doesn't doesn't fix it,
    - rename your xorg.conf
    - restart GDM
    - install/activate "nvidia-173" through "Additional Drivers"

    Greetings.

    Re: X server doesn't start after nvidia-xconfig

    Thanks a lot to all. Renaming of xorg.conf file worked and desktop is back.

    Can I ask you a one more question? Now I have the same problem as I mentioned in first post.
    I don't know how to make NVidia driver to work.
    This is how my Additionl Drivers looks: http://i52.tinypic.com/161fcwz.png
    If I would proceed with the same steps as I did before, the X server should be broken again.

    Re: X server doesn't start after nvidia-xconfig

    Hi,
    I had the same problem starting unity which worked after I installed the nvidia-current driver and created a new /etc/X11/xorg.conf with "sudo nvidia-xconfig", and then tweaked dual monitor with "sudo nvidia-settings".

    The nvidia-settings didn't work (command not found) when I also tried the 173 driver.

    After this I notice that the device reports as not in use, but can accept that as a bug I guess.

    I also notice now that the System Settings --> Monitors no longer shows my 2 monitors. It now just shows one monitor called "Unknown" - my ~/.config/monitors.xml still contains the correct data for both monitors.

    I also notice whereas before xrandr displayed a whole heap of interesting data, now just shows a few lines with some invalid minimum resolutions. Is this part of the same bug, or is there some other way to get Unity working with xrandr without installing the proprietary nvidia driver? - the difference in xrandr output before and after installing the Nvidia driver is significant.

    Oh, and I also edited the xorg.conf to add the RandRRotation option - that got rid of the "Rotation not supported" error in the Monitors app but didn't stop the "Unknown monitor". Perhaps the Monitors app is redundant after installing proprietary nvidia driver?

    For now I've uninstalled the Nvidia driver and using gnome classic - does this seem like a sensible approach until whatever bugs are finally resolved?

    Re: X server doesn't start after nvidia-xconfig

    There is a bug regarding the "not in use" statement of the jockey, aka "Additional Drivers":
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ey/+bug/771788

    The driver is usually being run fine, just check the output of:
    Code:
    lshw -c video
    Also, although the "nvidia-173" driver isn't listed in the jockey in the screenshot, you should try it if you are still having issues with "nvidia-current".

    To install it manually:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-173
    Regarding the proprietary Nvidia driver and xrandr, they seem to be not working well together, the functionality of xrandr is extremely limited when the proprietary Nvidia driver is running.

    Re: X server doesn't start after nvidia-xconfig

    I am experiencing a problem very similar, if not the same, as the one described in this thread.

    I am using Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit on a Dell XPS 17 with a Geforce GT 555M. I have tried the installing the driver from Additional Drivers and the drivers from the nVidia site with the same results. X server does not start upon reboot. I have to rename xorg.conf or delete it to boot into Ubuntu. Here is all the information I think it needed to troubleshoot.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    This xorg.conf nvidia-xconfig creates and causes X server to not boot.
    Code:
    # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig

    Re: X server doesn't start after nvidia-xconfig

    Never mind. I have learned I have an Optimus system and all the lovely issues that come with it. I am now using the new Bumblebee and now I have unity3d. Now, I am a little torn between trying Ironhide or staying with Bumblebee.
