http://askubuntu.com – So I know this has been posted a few times, I have searched and tried options but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to install my video card drivers. Where I stand now: Fresh install of 12.04 with default nouveau drivers What I have: GF nvidia 8500GT (amd) / 2x 23 inch monitors. one is rotated landscape* using nouveau i get weird issues like screen breaks. I have tried installing the additional drivers before, it just makes my system hang at boot. I have also disabled the nouveau driver. This got me into unity, but i could not see my 2nd monitor. Displays said i had 1 single mo (HowTos)
