I require some Help and Guidance in installing NVIDIA drivers on my system with a Dual Intel/Nvidia Graphics Processors.
I am currently running Ubuntu 14.04 and i am aware that the OS is in its late Beta stage however i perform daily Updates. The OS is running fine and smooth so i can not say that i have experienced any problems.
Following the installation method from below I successfully installed the Nvidia Driver without any errors. However upon restarting the system I was presented with a black screen.
Following a solution, I blacklisted the Nouveau Driver and performed another restart where uppon I was presented with the logging screen but in a 4/3 aspect ratio Format. I was unable to continue the log in to the Unity Desktop because the system froze and rendered the Mouse and keyboard inoperable.
Following another solution i then restarted the system in console mode where i proceeded to check the nvidia-xorg file. I noticed the settings looked odd as
Section "Device" and
Screen were missing. I tried recreating the file as per instructions using
nvidia-xconfig but i received an error "Unable to load X Server Display Configuration page:". At that point I gave up and re installed Ubuntu. I repeated this Process Once more but with no Success. I am currently running Ubuntu without the Nvidia drivers and i disabled the card using this method "apt-get install --no-install-recommends bumblebee". However i would like to get the Nvidia Card working.
sudo apt-get purge libvdpau-va-gl1
sudo apt-get install nvidia-319 nvidia-settings-319 nvidia-prime
