    Cool Re: 12.04 nvidia drivers? Compiz test failed.

    Hi folks.. Nividia posted a beta driver for us....

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-d...07-driver.html

    Did this -

    copied the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-302.07.run to the home folder

    opened a terminal

    sudo stop lightdm = stop the X-server
    ctrl - alt f1 or f2 through f6 to start a terminal

    logged in

    did a dir to see it is there; then typed; sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-302.07.run

    need to be root

    exited; rebooted; now typing this from Unity - bit slow but it works
    well sofar not having done much; everything? in firefox works

    Glenn

    P.S. I did the upgrade path adding the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.40.run driver then the above...

    If you did the " nouveau" driver route you will need to a more complicated set of instructions..

    Thanks for that Gstrazds, driver v302.07 seems to have solved my problem.

    Thank you, I've marked the thread as solved!

    EDIT:

    I'm trying to install the updated driver, but now I've run into an issue where when I stop lightdm I don't have any display at all, including the terminal. Pressed ctrl+alt+F1, didn't bring anything up. I suppose with any luck it'll show up in a PPA soon and I can try that.

    You need to start the removal of nvidia-current and nvidia-current-updates by getting a console with Ctrl-Alt-F2. Then stop lightdm. Stopping lightdm in a terminal window will cause havoc.

    Same problem here. And now the Nvidia installer keeps giving me a "cannot identify kernel, please install kernel-source".

    You need to ensure that you have the build-essential package installed. You may need to reinstall it if it was broken somehow.

    Reinstalled it, still the same message. The installer says it cannot identify the kernel version. :/ It also says that I can manually point out where the files are, as it is searching on /lib/modules/3.2.0-24-generic/build Also, there is a 'source' link on that folder that points to a file that does not exist. Reinstalling the headers didn't make any difference.

    Opened a can of alternative permutations;

    Worked for me as described.. All these underlying issues are showing up since; Including video related lock-ups, so I agree we have a Beta driver... including a bunch not related to the video driver

    typing (sudo stop lightdm) for me was the only way out of my X-session...

    A recovery terminal Option has since shown up with the beta driver as a login screen session..

    "Stopping lightdm in a terminal window will cause havoc."
    I didn't have any havoc???

    "I stop lightdm I don't have any display at all, including the terminal."

    This is expected - then Ctrl/alt f2 gets you the terminal outside of the x session...

    If all this other stuff is happening described in the new messages and it's not the
    "nouveau" driver issue, then there are other issues brought to the surface..

    Cairo is working way better than it did in 11.10
