I have a Thinkpad W520 and am running Linux Mint 12 64-bit. This laptop allows the graphics to be switched between, discrete (nVidia Quadro 2000M), integrated (Intel), and Optimus. Currently, integrated works fine, but discrete just hangs at a blank screen. I also recently added the Ubuntu x-swat repository and installed the latest version of nvidia-current:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo aptitude install nvidia-current
But that didn't solve the problem. I see this working for others running Fedora or Ubuntu, so I'm pretty sure there's a solution. Could someone help?
