i know my question is already asked but all question old,
i am going to build myself PC case and i already bought Motherboard, 16GB ram, and power supple (850 Watt), but only thing that i am so confused about it, is Graphic card, i dont know what is BEST graphic card for linux/ubuntu 12.04LTS
i heard from different peoples telling me i should NOT buy NIVIDIA nor ATI because both of them have/has
It's 2 year I've started using ubuntu. In ubutnu 10.04 until ubuntu 11.10 anything was Ok with my Graphic card, But when I migrate to ubuntu 12.04 I had a corruption in my graphic card and I paid expert to repair it. It was Ok with ubuntu 12.04 in continuous but when I upgraded to ubuntu 12.10 I'm never able to install my nvidia.
I'm new to ubuntu and i've been having this question since the day i installed Ubuntu. Does ubuntu come along with the necessary drivers for my Nvidia 640M graphic card? Also , My computer was overheating a few months back and i found out that the problem was with the Nvidia Optimus thing so i had to use Bumblebee and disable the graphic card.
I fresh installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my new laptop and I'm struggling with the graphic card.
I have an integrated Intel card + an NVIDIA GTX 860M coupled with optimus technology.
I understand that optimus is a big source of problem with linux and I tried several of the proposed solutions to make my NVIDIA work. Neither bumblebee nor nvidia prime seem to work.
