NVIDIA 960m graphics card not being used – Update 29th June 2017.
Despite thinking I had this NVIDIA 960m graphics card issue solved, I noticed the ASUS laptop was not using the NVIDIA card and was using the Intel driver.
An additional search found this article which nailed my issue and I can confirm the laptop is now using the 960m graphics card properly.
In essence – do this :-
sudo apt-get purge libvdpau-va-gl1 bumblebee* nvidia* sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 nvidia-settings nvidia-prime sudo prime-select nvida sudo reboot
I recently bought an ASUS N552VW, removed Windows 10 and installed Ubuntu. This is a very quick summary.
I faced the following immediate and persistent problems:-
- Low resolution – unable to change
- Login loop after installing latest and various earlier NVIDIA drivers.
I followed a lot of solutions which had been successful for some people, but ultimately failed for me.
Finally I installed Bodhi, based on this post here.
The display was recognised at the correct resolution and the system is working fine. Enlightenment/ Moksha is not for me and I have now managed to install ubuntu-desktop as the manager.
