NVIDIA graphics & Mint 201109 64

Postby w6kkt on Sat Oct 01, 2011 6:21 pm

The default 201109 NVIDIA "neo" driver is too slow when using Googleearth. I have tried quite a few times to install the NVIDIA 280.13 driver, which only gives me a blank screen with a pulsating hyphen at top of screen. No terminal. Other than that 201109-64 is a wonderful OS, which I'm using with my default. Any and all help would be much appreciated.

According to my (old) memory and the Nvidia XServer Settings app, the Update Pack 3 installs the 280.13 driver

If you install Nvidia driver you must remove NOUVEAU driver before restart.
