I'm an absolute noob to linux, so please bear with me. I have ubuntu 7.04 installed and an nvidia 5200 video card, along with a 3 ghz intel p4 processor and on a computer with no internet access. I tried to activate the nvidia driver from the restricted drivers list, and the dialog box popped up and i hit enable driver. However, when it goes back to the main restricted driver screen, the check box remains unchecked and the driver is still unactivated.
So then i went to the nvidia site and downloaded their driver file, a .run. I tried to install it using the instructions provided (type sh <driver file> in the terminal) but that didnt work either.
So finally i found a .deb package, and tried to install it by double clicking, then using the package manager. After doing that, i finally got a descriptive error message:
Error: dependency is not satisfiable
problem is, i have absolutley no idea what this means.
Can somebody give me a hand here?
