So can someone tell me how to run mint without start X server?
That's not what you need. Please post the output of this terminal command:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
Enclose the results between [ⅽode] and [/ⅽode] code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply.
I'm having the same issue

Doesn't it make sense if we are both dealing with the same issue not to blow up the board with multiple posts of the same issue? I'm sorry you don't like it but we need to work with each other.

The forum rules don't like it, either, We don't know yet what the OP's exact issue is other than that he's using the wrong driver package. Your nvidia driver is installed so I actually have no idea what problem you think you are having, but it's clearly not the same thing, yet we're now 5 posts into this off-topic discussion that you're disrupting the OP's thread with. Maybe a mod could split this into a separate thread.

Mod note:
Done. It's messy but it's the best I could do. Orginal topic is here.

My bad. I'm use to other forums who hate multiple of the same topic. Honestly I thought the OP was talking about using drivers other than xserver. I'm a noob so I didn't know.

Well, now you know for the future. If you need help you'll still need to tell us about your issue though. ;)

No biggie, we've all been new. But please take the time to read this. It's linked (in red, no less) from the top of every forum page for a reason.
