Upgraded to Mint 7 but no Hardware drivers

Postby The_Weaver on Thu Sep 03, 2009 5:35 pm

I've just upgraded to Mint 7 (from 6), using the command line method. When I go to Control Panel, and select Hardware Drivers nothing happens (i.e. the usual Nvidia driver screen does not open up). Any suggestions ? Thanks.

Hmm - open the menu and type jockey (or part thereof)
This should find "Hardware drivers" as the application is called jockey

Using "jockey" brings up the hardware drivers (the same as the control panel), and when I then click on them, nothing happens (the hard drive light comes on, but the panel regarding driver selection never appears). Thanks.
