    Post Nouveau Driver and OpenGL for Ubuntu 12.04

    Hey Guys... Can someone please help me to install Nouveau and OpenGL drivers in ubuntu 12.04 .... I have a very old nVidia graphics card and it does not work with nvidia drivers*. I want to use animations and visual effects of ubuntu smoothly...without frequent glitches or freezes. Please help me....


    *After installing nvidia drivers i can't get to the GUI part of ubuntu. Xserver can't start.

    Hi, what graphics card do you have?

    I'd recommend trying the 304.116 release from this PPA: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/x-updates

    hey Temüjin, I tried what you suggested.. but after installing the drivers...i didn't get any display... nvidia logo pops up after grub menu, then the display flickers for a second and everything goes black... Now i'm unable to log into ubuntu.
