    Re: Nvidia graphic driver doesn't seem to work & cause 8000x600 resolution

    I have similiar issues but can't install the driver.... i did everything as u said but whenever u want to run:
    Code:
    sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-169.12-pkg2.run
    it tells me:
    Code:
    sh: can't run NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-169.12-pkg2.run
    I am in the right directory and i typed the filename right (pretty sure about that)...
    i tried to run this when xserver was running and it started working then told me to that xserver should be stopped... when i stop xserver it just give that error

    Any ideas?

    Maybe you have a 32 bit Ubuntu.

    Yeah, don't forget to download the right driver. I run 32bit Ubuntu and had to download the 32bit driver but that's no hassle.

    when i try to to run
    code:
    sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-169.12-pkg2.run
    it says sh: file cannot be run (or something of that nature)
    ive also tried the other way but still...no cigar

    Make sure you have build-essential installed:
    sudo aptitude install build-essential
    Let me know if it's a matter of permissions.
