Re: Halp. (Drivers)

Did you install from the NVidia site or the repositories? Give us that info and the output of glxinfo in a terminal, please.

I downloaded the file for Linux 64 bit from the nvidia website. I can't figure out how to get it to run though, lol. It's just sitting on the desktop at the moment.

I tried to download it through the software marketplace through the "current" entry. I think that's what broke it though. I'll get some terminal output when I get on the laptop next.

Hi DrModem and welcome to Linux.

I do suggest getting familiar with the Ubuntu forums because... well... Ubuntu is Ubuntu. And the interfaces are known there.

For example, under the hood Ubuntu has used jockey for years, and I think they still do, for video drivers. But the new user would never know or see it. The interface for jockey is usually a menu like: "Hardware Drivers". But my knowledge of 12.10 is limited.

HTH
