It's been a while since I ran Mint (11) and now that I have a new Asus ZenBook, I thought that I would give it another shot.
Installed 64 bit Nadia with Cinnamon, but am sad to find no multiple desktop support, nor much of the functionality available from NVIDIA drivers.
I've searched these forums and the Net, and pretty much everything focuses on 13 or before. Those posts about 14 haven't really provided a solution, most are not complete to a solution.
I've tried to install the NVIDIA driver but get the problems of having to shut down X, then I don't get the driver loaded (as best as I can tell) because a graphical interface isn't presented.
Does anyone know of a step by step to install NVidia drivers for Mint 14 Nadia?
Also am curious about the lack of ease in loading proprietary drivers, is it due to a change in Ubuntu that I haven't detected due to upgrades to 12.10 that went well for me on my 10+ other systems? I saw one post that seemed to indicate this, but didn't have time to go search for just that point.
Thanks in advance for any pointers regarding this. I like Mint's approach, but need to get around this point before I can move forward.
