Default Re: GeForce 7300 LE w/Kubuntu 10.04/10.10 : My personal nightmare

Thanks a lot, adrian. I hadn't known there were updates yet, I was planning on downgrading x... You've just saved me a ton of work if this gets it going- will post progress.

Oh, and as for jockey, i hadn't known you needed nvidia-common. thanks!

EDIT: okay, jockey still doesn't want to work (tried jockey-kde as well as jockey-gtk)
here's the terminal output when running as root:
Code:
root@STC:~# jockey-kde
/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:127: RuntimeWarning: PyOS_InputHook is not available for interactive use of PyGTK
  set_interactive(1)
QInotifyFileSystemWatcherEngine::addPaths: inotify_add_watch failed: No such file or directory
QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: /root/.config/ibus/bus
Bus::open: Can not get ibus-daemon's address. 
IBusInputContext::createInputContext: no connection to ibus-daemon
Any ideas? nvidia-current-modaliases and nvidia-common are installed.

If I can't get it to work, I wouldn't mind doing it manually... Which packages should I install? ( have the x-swat ppa added and functioning)
Here's a list of packages that come up when I search for nvidia with apt-cache:
Code:
root@STC:~# sudo apt-cache search nvidia
