[Solved] Cannot use Nvidia graphic driver

I reinstalled again the system, this time I updated everything but Firefox, Thunderbird and Flash.
Until there is a fix for the firefox/thunderbird problem, I will run the firefox 33, thunderbird 31 and adobe flash plugin 11. Not sure if flash has an influence but I read something about it.

Re: Cannot use Nvidia graphic driver

Not much explanation for the error: mint@mint ~Desktop $ sh -C 'ubiquity gtk_ui' Illegal instruction That error message probably refers to the ubiquity slideshow that plays during the installation. Before clicking on the desktop icon to start the installation, open the Terminal and use this command...

Re: Cannot use Nvidia graphic driver

What is happening? Almost too much to mention. :shock: Main things: 1. Do *not* try to install an Nvidia driver in the live session of the DVD. 2. Do *not* try to install an Nvidia driver from a package that you've downloaded from the Nvidia website, but use Driver Manager instead. 3. Forget about ...

Re: Cannot use Nvidia graphic driver

This is the third time I try to install but it fails. It starts installing, first copies files, then starts installing the system but suddenly the progress window disappears and the cursor keeps going around but nothing happens. I left it for hours to see if anything would happen but no. I did check...

Re: Cannot use Nvidia graphic driver

An open source Nouveau driver, which apparently does a reasonably good job in Mate. But a Nouveau driver can't make your Nvidia video card perform to the maximum of its capabilities; only the closed non-free Nvidia driver can. I do not do things that require much from the graphic card. So could I i...

Re: Cannot use Nvidia graphic driver

So, I will not be able to run Mint 18.1 because my computer is too old, is that it? More or less. For best performance, your video card needs an old Nvidia driver that only 17 and 17.1 can provide. :) OK, I am installing it now. But there is something I do not understand: why is it that the Linux M...

Re: Cannot use Nvidia graphic driver

The latest version of the nvidia-173 driver, which is 173.14.39 , supports X.Org X Server up to version 1.15 . So you will need to install Mint 17.2 or older. This is supported until 2019. Mint 17.3 uses Xorg 1.17 and Mint 18 uses Xorg 1.18. Also, I don't think your graphics card has the processing...

Re: Cannot use Nvidia graphic driver

Thank you. I want to install any drivers that will work. I did the above. From the recovery mode it said it could not open the .run file. I then tried to boot normally and after it failed a few times, it went into tty (?) mode and from there tried to install the driver. After accepting the installat...

IF you search for information on keybindings, you will find the details needed to assign an action to a specifix keypress combination.

Re: Some keys combination on keyboard not detected

Any one?

If really these keys will not work, would it at least be possible to assign another key combination to toggle airplane mode ON/OFF ?

Something like " sudo rfkill unblock all"?

Thanks.

Re: Preview image files to overwrite

I have the same problem, but not only for image files, for any type of file, there in no information about the file I want to replace.
All there is is a "origin" and "destination",under it the path of the files, then at the bottom a suggestion to rename the file.
Any news about this bug?

Re: Disabled the touchpad 'while typing' does not work

The option for me was to disable the syndaemon from the system settings since it does not work (and I have not discovered how to edit its command), and to add an entry in the startup applications as follows: syndaemon -i 0.5 -d And it works fine. I found 1 second to be too long, so I decreased the ...

Re: Dolphin - cannot drag and drop to another program

I did a fresh install on a new laptop, as the other one died.

The problem about drag and drop from dolphin still does not work, any idea on how to solve this?

Thank you.

Well, I am happy you have it working. I do not have the baloo installed. One feature relatively new in dolphin I cannot use, is the options on the left pane "Recently accessed /today /yesterday /this month /last month" and "search for /documents /images /audio /video" I never really felt the need to...
