Most of the time, this means newer versions are compatible with a larger variety of hardware components, but sometimes it might also introduce regressions. But the closed-source nature of Nvidia drivers makes it difficult for open-source communities to contribute. So, I went back to the kernel driver and I am happy.
If that one works better for you, you can stick to it, or you can use it to install Linux Mint and then upgrade to the newer release. So far though, from a user friendly point of view, Lubuntu is not my friend. It is not a big deal for open-source products. So I guess I'm stuck with older kernel. After restarting the computer, a black screen with a blinking cursor awaited me. If you reboot the system, you will have to reset these.
It may seem strange at first but try using it for like a half an hour and then turn it off: Warning your eyes will feel like they are burning. Pick the highest driver version.

This is a simple tutorial to help you get the Nvidia proprietary driver to work on Linux Mint 9 Isadora using Grub2. I really would like to remove nouveau but it wants to remove xserver-xorg-video-all It's unbelievable how unusable some computers become to beginners thanks to this. Another weird thing is Nvidia panel, which is almost empty, there are only two tabs: apps profiles and nvidia settings. Plus it used to be hassle to install a fresh copy with black screen on boot. I discovered that it was never the kernel but the nvidia driver that was the reason for this annoying message. Is there any way to see what is actually going wrong, or better yet, does someone have an idea what the problem might be?

Hardware Compatibility The package comes with support for multiple generations of Nvidia cards.
As for Linux, I never tried it before. The following packages have unmet dependencies: lib32gcc1 : Depends: gcc-4. If you want to access their source code you can use the apt-get source command. To keep things easy, download them to your home folder the one named after your user name. Unfortunately you need to now the following steps, since you otherwise might end up with an unusable system that just tells you that it couldn't load the right driver.

Hi there I apologize for any language mistakes, English is not my native language. It might have its issues with privacy, security or performance, but if you want to get a system set up, the amount of work typically required would be exponentially less on Windows, than it would be for a system running Linux.
