Can not get nvidia drivers to work, when I did cinnamon de was crashing.
 
A complete noob here. I know about linux nothing at all(maybe I do know something from my researches about android but still). And I just decided to leave Windows for Linux, because I've always hated Windows, but could not do it, 'cause I was playing a lot of win games. So installed Linux Mint alongside Windows, but I can not get nvidia drivers to work or even load at all. I have a Nvidia GT630 and I have my VGA-monitor connected to my DVI-only video-card using an adapter. Any help? I really want to use, learn and enjoy Linux, but I just can't.
Here's my Xorg.log, I think it might help.
Thanks!

Open a terminal and execute :

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-352
sudo reboot

It didn't help, but I've done some research and here's what I've come up to: i did more googling and found a command, which helped me to get Nvidia X server to work. I even managed to get my native resolution! Now, the only problem is that cinnamon stopped working. Right after the start of the os a message appears saying that cinnamon is running in fallback mode.

What I did:
Code:

sudo update-alternatives --config x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf
There are 3 choices for the alternative x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf (providing /etc/ld.so.conf.d/x86_64-linux-gnu_GL.conf).

  Selection    Path                                      Priority  Status
------------------------------------------------------------
  0            /usr/lib/nvidia-375/ld.so.conf              8604      auto mode
  1            /usr/lib/nvidia-375-prime/ld.so.conf        8603      manual mode
* 2            /usr/lib/nvidia-375/ld.so.conf              8604      manual mode
  3            /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/ld.so.conf  500      manual mode

I've changed it from 3 to 0 and got Nvidia X Server working(1 and 2 work too). If only I could fix cinnamon, so it would stop crashing :c

Edit: My updated Xorg log. AFAIU there's some kind of a problem with memory overloading...

Edit2: So I fixed cinnamon crash by removing $/.cinnamon and reinstalling it from software manager. Now everything works great.
Thanks!
