Can't Activate nVidia Driver

Postby house » Tue Dec 14, 2010 1:35 pm

I recently installed Mint 9 KDE edition. I can't activate the nVidia driver because it is no longer in the default Ubuntu repository. Does anyone know where I can find the driver? Thanks

In the terminal you can type whohas name.of_driver or you can go to and download that program. Use ctrl+alt+F1 to run it in the terminal. Use sgfxi as the command in the terminal and it should hook you right with your card.
