Hmmmm---Well. I'm going to have to do some thinking on the printer--the Brother site has always worked for me....
As for Nvidia....there are several files that you need to install to get it working & you'll need to create a xorg.conf---I normally write my own xorg.conf (I use to do debug for Ubuntu) & then install a number of .debs---reboot & cross your fingers...
A typical xorg.conf that will work:
- Code: Select all
Identifier "Default Screen"
Identifier "Default Device"
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
Option "RegistryDwords" "PerfLevelSrc=0x2222" (don't include for laptops--will not allow reduced performance)
Option "Coolbits" "4"
Option "TripleBuffer" "1"
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP"
Option "SLI" "True" (not needed for your application--ONLY FOR MULTIPLE CARDS)
Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = Native"
*****delete the options you don't need or put a # in front of them******
Put this with the mods you need in /etc/X11 (as root user)
The Nvidia .debs I have installed:
lib32vdpau1, libcuda1, libcuda1-ia32, libgl1-nvidia-alternatives, libgl1-nvidia-alternatives-ia32, libgl1-nvidia-glx, libgl1-nvidia-glx-ia32, libglx-nvidia-alternatives. libvdpau1, nvclock-gtk (only needed if you O/C your card), nvidia-glx, nvidia-glx-ia32, nvidia-kernel-common, nvidia-kernel-dkms, nvidia-settings, nvidia-smi, nvidia-vdpau-driver & nvidia-xconfig. Any other depends you will need will be pulled in by Synaptic when you start installing. ***(make sure you use Synaptic or by commandline use Aptitude)--dkms is required to load the Nvidia driver into each new kernel you install.***
Also note that I'm using a 64bit install---that's why the ia32 .debs--you won't be presented with them in a 32bit install....so proceed accordingly......(note for anyone that searches for "Nvidia drivers")
