So, after reading 6 pages of posts, I come down to 1 question. Has anyone come up with a foolproof method of installing the proprietary nvidia drivers? I have tried most of the steps I could folow in this thread, but with no success. My vid card is
Graphics: Card: NVIDIA GK106 [GeForce GTX 650 Ti] bus-ID: 01:00.0
X.Org: 1.14.3 drivers: nvidia (unloaded: fbdev,vesa,nouveau) Resolution: firstname.lastname@example.org
GLX Renderer: GeForce GTX 650 Ti/PCIe/SSE2 GLX Version: 4.4.0 NVIDIA 331.20 Direct Rendering: Yes
When I run xrandr I get this.
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1024 x 768, maximum 16384 x 16384
DVI-I-0 connected primary 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
1360x768 60.0 59.8
800x600 72.2 60.3 56.2
680x384 60.0 59.8
DVI-I-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
HDMI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI-D-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
When I try to force a mod to use 1600x900 resolution it tells me that it can't find DVI-I-0, but right above it says it is using it. This has ben one of my most frustrating experiences I have had. Almost makes me want to go back to windows.
