    RE: Can't find a distro to work
    Due to licensing issues with broadcom the drivers cannot be included in any live or installation cd, once you get a distro installed you can check their package management system for broadcom and in most cases the drivers are then available to be installed.

    I am glad that it worked, are there any portions of the command that you do not understand?

    RE: Can't find a distro to work
    I do not think there are any distros that carry the proprietary driver by default due to licensing reasons. However from the command line you can put in the command "sudo apt-get install nvidia-current" to install the nvidia drivers from the online repos for either of those distros as Zorin is based upon ubuntu. Since you have been using only ubuntu based distros I recommend trying some others out like fedora or magea to see if they are having the same problems.

    RE: Can't find a distro to work
    Most distros will offer the proprietary drivers in the package manager, the run file is used for manual distros like slackware or to create the packaged file. I recommend trying something like ubuntu and going to the hardware drivers option and selecting to install the latest nvidia driver. If you can share what distros you have tried, we may be able to find the instructions for the distro(s).
