    Nvidia discrete graphics card

    Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, I hope that some good soul can help me here please.
    lspci -nn | grep VGA doesn't find my discrete graphics card, however
    lspci -nn | grep 01:00.0 shows some 3D controller nvidia that looks like my graphics card
    The problem is, all drivers etc. refuse to work, I have all the typical problems like no direct rendering when I run glxinfo, gdm on my system was just blowing up with every try, so I'm using mdm at the moment - much better debugging options.. cinnamon runs normally.
    Important output of glxinfo | grep vendor
    server glx vendor string: SGI
    client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
    OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
    After I have used
    prime-select nvidia - I had to uninstall nvidia-prime to get this working, bumblebee shows no errors, already set up it's conf files - I can provide them too if asked

    Do you know the model of your card?

    Hello!

    Expecting an answer within the hour is a bit demanding. This is a volunteer forum, populated by users such as yourself. Perhaps the person with just the right answer has not seen your thread yet. We ask that users wait 12 hours without a response before bumping their threads.

    Just so you know: Of the views, before you got the answer you did, three had been by users who are logged in. You, another Staff member and me. The rest of those views are likely from people looking for an answer and indexing bots.

    And, by the way, by bumping so quickly you have removed your thread from the "unanswered posts" query that many of us look at to find posts that need to be answered.

    Please be patient and respectful.

    Thanks.

    I'm so sorry I was just stressed out. Won't happen again I promise.

    Re: Nvidia discrete graphics card

    Jan_Jindrek; Hello'

    Let's start by identifying the hardware - and ask the right question of the system.
    Code:
    lspci -k | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D'
    dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia
    and see what is installed for a driver(s) .

    Maybe next is look at the X log file ?

    all in the process

    Happy ubuntu'n !

    ^^ that's yours - it looks messy and I don't see a gpu driver installed; I also see xedgers (xorg-edgers? it's deprecated) and linuxmint references.

    I think you should tell us more about your set-up.

    If I run the same command (albeit on a desktop not on a laptop with dual graphics) I get:

    More info from you I think

    Re: Nvidia discrete graphics card

    Jan_Jindrek; Hey;

    Making progress, and I do agree with tokyobadger. We need additional info .
    What release are you running ? What are you doing with this system ? A gamer ? Heavy duty number crunching ?
    How much ram is installed .. enough to handle intensive graphics ?

    Nvidia recommends the 361 version driver for your system . Depending, perhaps the 364 will perform better.
    We also need to know the Xserver version you have:
    show us /// between code tags /// :
    Code:
    free -m
    lsb_release -a
    uname -r
    X -version
    code tag tutorial:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...8#post12776168

    And we get this system cleaned up and the proper graphic's driver installed.

    ain't no step for a stepper
