Ubuntu 12.10 has been released but immediately some users started to complain, and rightly so, because of a problem with the video card drivers. In particular, there seems to be a problem for all those who are in possession of some particular model of nVidia video card : it can happen, in fact, that the desktop does not appear after installing the driver experimental nvidia or even those owners . If you use the Open Source driver , however, everything runs smoothly.
must therefore fall back on the driver Open? It is said, there is a (rather more than one) solution to this problem and we will take back to below.
First solutionPress the key combination Ctrl + Alt + F1 to enter the emergency terminal. Log in with your username and password and type:
sudo apt-get install linux-sourceNow uninstall the current driver:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.5.0-17-generic
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-currentIf it does not, try the command:
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current-updatesor:
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-experimental-304reinstalliamoli now (yes, it looks like a joke almost mockingly):
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current-updatesIf everything is successful, type:
sudo shutdown-r nowAnd when you restart you should have solved!
Second solutionthis solution is more immediate. Open the terminal of an emergency, press the key combination Ctrl + Alt + F1 and type:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settingsNow restart the whole typing:
sudo mv / etc/X11/xorg.conf / etc/X11/xorg.conf.old
sudo shutdown-r nowI beg you, so let us know if you have solved the problem!
