I have an Nvidia GeForce 8200M graphics card and ran into some trouble with Compiz. I changed Visual Effects to "None" and now cannot change back to any other setting, including "Normal." I found this thread:http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=21472&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=nvidia+177+driver+nvidia+8200m
The OP on that thread seems to have his problem solved, but I am not sure of the exact steps to take to get the newest Nvidia 180 driver. I currently have the nvidia-glx-177
driver. I just want to make sure I get the steps right, because I just installed yesterday and really do not want to mess up my installation if at all avoidable.
