Nvidia 8600GT on Dell Inspiron 1520 / start in tty1 login console mode
I tried most methods suggested on many sites to install drivers
## through the additional driver panel only
## through the Nvidia.run file I downloaded
## through the terminal using apt-get
all failed to start ubuntu gui it takes me to the console login and I noticed it says "saned disabled" edit /etc/..something..
this problem made me install ubuntu again three times and every time I activate the driver then install the driver Nvidia.run or through apt-get and both leads to a black screen tty1 login
so what to do now I installed and removed many things and I won't reinstall ubuntu again
Also I typed compiz and this came on
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".
compiz (core) - Fatal: Root visual is not a GL visual
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :1.0
Launching fallback window manager
please help I wan't to install properly so that I can start normally and enable the extra visual effects and the custom effects
Please elaborate the steps clearly
when I enter nvidia-settings : server X opens and says
You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server
when i enter nvidia-xconfig as root and restart nothing happens
and when I enter:
nvidia-detector it says none
