I would like to try the Noveau driver instead of the proprietary NVIDIA driver. No problem with the proprietary one, but I would like to see a proper Linux Kubuntu splash screen, which requires kernel graphics support.
Please provide me with a solution so I can "go back" to proprietary if the open ones can't support Google Earth for example.
Since I re-installed Ubuntu, I have attempted to install a working nvidia driver. Despite having a functioning NVidia Graphics Card (see below for specifics), I was never offered the chance to install the proprietary driver. As a result, I attempted to install the one from the repos (nvidia_experimental_304).
Well since upgrading from 13.37 I noticed that using the nvidia proprietary driver (installed through slackbuilds.org) X (tried from twm to KDE) freezes constantly, especially when using 3D acceleration.
Today I performed a yum upgrade to F18 from F17. It went pretty smoothly I must say. The only problem I have had is getting the proprietary NVIDIA driver working. If I load the system without an 'xorg.conf' file it loads the default drivers just fine. When specifying the nvidia driver, however, the system will not load the display manager. Shell access is still available though.
I installed the latest nvidia driver from rpm fusion by this guide:
But 3D does not work!

Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor
With my MX 440, If I use the "nv" driver, then text is clear, and the refresh rate is 60.If I use the "nvidia" driver, then I can use GLX, but the refresh rate is 50, and the text is slightly blurrier.My monitor looks best at 60 hz, can anyone help me get "nvidia" driver to work at 60 hz?
Hi all, I'm in need of some help. I am getting screen tearing after installing crunchbang 11 waldorf (64bit) and the nvidia proprietary driver 319.17 for a geforce gt 750M card (using smxi). I have spent a few days searching and trying out solutions to this problem but I haven't had any luck. Here are the actions/steps I have tried to fix this problem:set vblank on (nvi
There was a time I used BFS kernel when some AUR maintainers compiled nvidia driver for using it with BFS kernel and that nvidia driver was up to date. And lately this driver in AUR seems to be abandoned. Does anyone know is it still possible to use BFS kernel with nvidia card and proprietary nvidia driver? (Nouveau doesn't work for me.)
