this should do it. Before you reboot run

Code: Select all

sudo nvidia-xconfig

i'm trying my absolute best to add those repos, they will not add in LMDE with the normal command, and does not load manually, or with manual URL in software sources.

Code: Select all

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/xorg-edgers/ppa/ubuntu testing main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/xorg-edgers/ppa/ubuntu testing main

are added in

Code: Select all

sources.list.d/xorg-edgers-ppa-testing.list 
but does not update

Code: Select all

Thanks for this one!

I will give it a go tomorrow or the day after. I'm testing what Debian Sid update will do to the system. I have a friend running only Sid and the nVidia driver (340)really works well with it...
The Bumblebee stuff looks great!

(All the options one has on Linux is what makes me love it so much - for the last 9 years)

Ok - I'll move to a new post soon.

The sound is SOLVED and updated.
The graphics is not.

I'm moving to Sid repos in an attempt to install nVidia latest.
Bumblebee does not work with my Custom kernel. It does work with 3.14.xx.

(In future I might get clean LMDE with 3.14 kernel and Bumblebee.) - I think it's a good and stable option. My current option might break any day... - but! I'm testing it all out. (Or it might never break!)

Thanks for all the support! - the amount I have learned is HUGE!!
Thanks PatH57! - you lead my on the right paths!

So, Just so other people also know....

Do not try and install the proprietary driver for nVidia to the 3.15/16 kernels just yet (Until a someone gets it installed easily)... I've struggled my complete nuts off to get it to work. I can only start command line! (Haha) ..that does not work for movies...
