OK guys I can NOT get a windows game to run on Ubuntu with descent fps, I have done everything I am supposed to do so I assume its the Linux graphics drivers, well here's the problem, I DO NOT want to use anything except the Nvidia drivers that come with Ubuntu because they work perfectly on Ubuntu
Since I DO NOT want to reformat my hard drive and install windows first then Ubuntu simply
Hardware Drivers are very important for a computer system to run properly to its optimum limits. Real Gaming on Ubuntu would be possible only after Driver installation. This post will cover the basic methods of installing Hardware Drivers in Ubuntu. We will try to make things as simple as possible.
I'm currently using Ubuntu 12.10 64bit alongside with Windows 7 Professional 64bit on a custom hardware desktop PC, and I've noticed that I don't have the correct drivers for Ubuntu, since I'm experiencing some graphical and sound glitches.
I have an ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card in my computer. I want to install its driver in Ubuntu because I want to run Steam and play Team Fortress 2 while using Ubuntu without having to reboot my entire machine into Windows to do it. (I have 2 harddrives)
However, trying to install the drivers onto my Ubuntu system has been the worst yet from my history of using Ubuntu.
