I can't wait to try those magnificient tips tonigt... I should have read this way before trying anything else (Yes, I'm that kind of guy...). I'm new to those "X" and Nvidia problems were not what I'm use to but I keep faith that learning news stuff always pay off
it looks clear to me this will solve my issue so far, and I'll keep you posted with feedbacks that would help others once done.
Thanks for this great and clear toturial!!
(Next step for me, sharing files between My new Mint (Maya) and the GF's laptop Win8.1... pleasant nights to come!!)
*Edit: The "nomodeset xforcevvesa" worked, I updated the driver with the one the update manager suggested me, reboot and now I'm stuck in ttf1 mode...
I'll keep reading 'till I find a solution!
*Re-edit: For Nvidia GT 240, this worked for me:
Getting driver 304.xx through the ttf1 screen (where I'm stuck anyway) and be happy to see a beautyful screen working uder my GT 240:
- Code: Select all
sudo mdm stop
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers
