I've installed Ubuntu 14.04 and I'm experiencing a fuzzy/blurry screen and bad support for multiple screens.
I realized that Ubuntu installs nouveau as default, but I need to install nvidia drivers, so I tried this:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates apt-get update apt-get install nvidia-current apt-get upgrade
Now that nvidia is installed, you need to blacklist the nouveau driver
so it don’t pop out when you will reboot. Create or edit the following
…and add these lines at the end:
blacklist nouveau blacklist lbm-nouveau options nouveau modeset=0 alias nouveau off alias lbm-nouveau off
I checked via the software & updates if nvidia driver got installed successfully, and it says the driver installed is nvidia 304.117
I then tried to run:
lshw -c video | grep 'configuration'
and the result is that the driver is still
configuration: driver=nouveau latency=0
So how do I install and use the nvidia drivers?
