Fan running in Mint KDE - sorted in Gnome

Postby olliegab on Sun Feb 17, 2013 5:54 am

When I installed Mint14 Gnome some time ago my graphics card fan ran constantly. I went to software sources and ticked a few boxes to get the Nvidia propietery drivers, then I can't really remember what I did but must have installed the drivers either from the command line or from synaptic. And after that I did nvidia-xconfig and that got my fan working (ie it doesn't run when i shouldn't!).
Now, trying to do the same after installing Mint14 KDE I don't seem to get anywhere...(after ticking boxes in software sources)
I've tried apt-get update, apt-get install nvidia-current (and nvidia-current-updates) but it says it can't recognise the names.
I've also tried nvidia-config but it says "no such command" - which means I haven't got the nvidia drivers yet, I assume.

Please any suggestions?
