I am pretty sure proprietary nVidia drivers are also in their package mangagers which you WILL need if you wish to make use of your cuda cores
If you check the last line in my signature, you will find what my OS is.

PS Oops accepted.

Also, @Gandalf_PCHF, did you remember to put boinc in the video group and run the 'xhost local:boinc' command like I suggested? I believe both steps are necessary.

Where to from here?
The Boinc Manager still does not indicate the use of the GPUs.

Some people have reported problems with newer versions of boinc.

It might a good idea to join a boinc forum and get more information.
I had trouble with a new version and went back to 6.10.56

How do you go back?

I used the Package Manager to install Boinc initially. I do now that they have a newer vision coming out. I don't think it's Package ready yet.

Hi,
I downloaded this from the boinc site, not from the package manager.
Here are some of the versions on the site.

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php


I have kept all the old versions.

cheers

I have solved my problems by downloading boinc and the boinc-nvidia driver packages.

I'd like to thank the members who have tried to help me through my newbie ventures in Linux.

I am really glad you solved this issue. Hopefully you keep digging deeper into the Gnu-Linux world

Wish you the best luck to you!

Thank much. I appreciate the feedback.
I now have Cinnamon on one of my i7's and MINT on my Laptop.
My other i7 still has Win7 on it. Well, I'm not perfect.
FYI - Vista was showing my Laptop as dying. MINT has given it a new life.
It's magic!
