The driver listed with my Mint 11 is 173. It appears the latest nVidia driver is 285. In years past, when updating Nvidia drivers in another distro, I have lost most of my fonts. Am I about to cause the same problem here?
In the link above, viking777 mentions a root terminal multiple times. My understanding is that Mint does not have a root user but instead relies on the sudo command. Is that not the case or has he taken the time to manually add a root user?
That just takes me to a black screen. The system doesn't hang as I can return to my desktop with Ctrl Alt F7 and restart with Ctrl Alt Delete. What am I missing here? Is there a better GUI tool for noobs like me?Ctl/Alt/F1 to get you into a virtual terminal
