<SOLVED> Mint 16RC Mate 64bit nvidia-settiings Missing

Postby SteveIDusa on Mon Nov 18, 2013 12:43 am

Just installed Linux Mint 16 Mate RC 64-bit, used Drivers Application to install Nvidia Drivers 319 (recommended). All seems to progress as normal, however I am unable to launch nvidia-settings via the Menu System or CLI. Looking at the Menu Entry under Administration I can (right-click) and pull up the properties and it gives me in the Command: field "/usr/bin/nvidia-settings" with out the quotes. When I pull it up in Caja and navigate to that path the nvidia-settings app or icon is not there.

Any Ideas? I cant setup my screens. It will run nvidia-xconfig, but without the interface I get lost in the conf file.

Already a known bug for the RC, it's on the list of issues to fix for the final release: https://github.com/linuxmint/Roadmap

I don't have Nvidia here, but installing the package nvidia-settings will probably be the solution?

Are you serious, it would be that simple........omg, palm to face.......it is that easy.

I dont know why I didnt think to check Synaptic......I guess I just expected the Nvidia Drivers were responsible for that.....

Thanks for the reply, this has been solved!
