I don't have my nvidia 8400gm graphics card included in additional drivers in ubuntu 12.10 64bit. Previously it was working fine on ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit. here is the screenshot
OK so I just got Ubuntu the other month or so. I'm running the 11.04 version currently and trying to install drivers for a Nvidia graphics card (it's my brother's computer and he currently cannot find the number of the card right now). I read that, to install the proper drivers for gaming, I would need to go into "Additional Drivers" and choose them myself.
Lenovo laptop W520 has two graphics cards: Integrated and nVidia. Ubuntu 10.10 had worked with Integrated graphics card and driver. Since I used System->Administration->Additional Drivers to activate nVidia, after reboot I have only terminal login now and no more graphics. Thanks.
I am using ubuntu gnome remix 12.10 with ATI mobility radeon HD 4300 graphics card. Software sources do not show any additional drivers. How do I install the graphics drivers for my system?
$ lspci | grep VGA 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV710 [Mobility Radeon HD 4300 Series]
Hey guys, I've been using ubuntu without installing any of the additional drivers. If I do click there, it says I should allow the installation of my nvidia 305m driver. I was wondering that if I did this, whether or not my battery life will decrease? Can someone tell me if it will or not? I feel like the nvidia card would eat up more battery.
I want to get a new laptop with a decent graphics card. I don't care that nVidia's drivers are closed source as long as they're good. I've heard that ATI drivers are buggier and I was wondering which card would be best. I have options like GT 240M, GT 320M, Radeon HD 4670. In theory I think 4670 is fastest, but if it is going to cause computer bugs it's not what I want. So my question is...
I've dual-boot my Ubuntu 12.10 and I had my default 12.04 LTS problem, it is the Graphics. Usually I use the "Additional Drivers" to check out my "hidden" Graphics card. But after I replace the Precise with Quantal, I didn't found my "Additional Drivers" in System Settings!! I already download from Ubuntu Software Center, and after it finish I still can't find it.
I currently have a intel GMA4500X and games run at a blazing 10FPS (TORCS) so i got a nvidia GT 240. No drivers (the nvidia site lied!) so i got a GTS 250 which I KNEW had drivers. it doesn't fit. I am looking for a gfx card WITH drivers that isn't bigger than the GT 240. ATI or nVidia is fine.
