    RE: nvidia drivers help?
    the command came up blank, I deactivated and reactivated the driver and restarted my computer but nothing changed. this is what it does when I click on NVIDIA X Server Settings in system>administration.

    RE: nvidia drivers help?
    Right now I only have a couple resolutions and it lags when I play videos and stuff. I some how activated it one time and it worked much better and I had much more options such as higher resolutions, rotating the screen, etc. but then when I turned it off and back on the next day the display didn't work so I had to reset it. I was just wondering what you wanted me to do with the 'ubuntu package of the proprietary drivers' or whatever.

    best linux distro?
    right now I'm running ubuntu 10.04, but there's so many things that don't work. I have an nvidia gforce gt240 video card, and I've tried countless times to install it, but it just never works. I also have tried to install starcraft 2 a couple times with no success. I have starcraft one installed but even that doesn't work sometimes. my question is, is there a better linux OS that's more compatible with things?
