Re: unable to make Nvidia drivers work.
OK, I followed your instructions as close as I could
i used synaptic to update the drivers from the ppa. does this actually install them?
verified via synaptic that they are the 180.60.
GUI hardware driver tool will still not "activate" them.
used ctrl+alt+F1 to get to console screen.
Was unable to do startx or gdm stop or killall x various errors.
ran the script. log file attached.
also did reboot and same no nvidia driver errors.
looking forward to your feedback.
I will stay with this tonight until you call it a night. ;-)
p.s. I will be out at a client most of Wed. I will look for your responses but will probably not be able to get back to this until Thursday morning.
