karmic doesn't recognize graphics card
I have recently installed Karmic to a portable hard drive (WD elements 500gb) so that when it is plugged in the grub can boot and i can go into ubuntu 9.10 and when it is out windows 7/vista dual boot screen shows.
When in ubuntu, there is no driver for my 'NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS' graphics card available so i am stuck with the no effects mode and the games are poor.
Previously i had this same setup (but with jaunty) and the graphics card worked well, i could have all the wobbly window effects etc, but now i can't have anything.
How could i get a driver for this?
BTW, it is running through USB 2.0, although it is very fast.
Download and install a driver from the nvidia site. They have linux drivers.
May be you have a Menu in the Panel saying :
Proprietary Drivers ?
Else : Synaptic > Settings > Archives
.. Proprietary Drivers should be ticked ..
Synaptic : Hit the Refresh button if you changed anything.
And then look for nvidia-glx-185 , mark it for install.
nvidia-settings, nvidia-xconfig : install them too.
Alternatively, the command line :
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 nvidia-settings nvidia-xconfig
