Drivers Nvidia Geforce 8500 Gt Ubuntu Download

Using the latest Ubuntu 13.10 and trying to get the proprietary drivers for my GeForce 8500 GT. But it doesn't show in the Additional settings. It's blank. Am I doing something wrong or should I download it from the Nvidia homepage? How do I install it? Step by step would be awesome for me as a non-geek.

Drivers Nvidia Geforce 8500 Gt Ubuntu Download


Installed Ubuntu 22.04 on two machines with nVidia graphic card by downloading the drivers during install. No issues encountered on my laptopl Dell XPS 15 7590. Not the same on my self built Desktop where after restart I get the infamous black screen of death, not even able to repair / rescue install with boot repair. The issue was present with the previous install of 20.04 when selecting the NVIDIA legacy drivers after install, but was solved when uploading them during the installation. Tried two times with 22.04 and 510 proprietary tested drivers and both time I got the black screen after retart witn only cursor blinking after some lines of codes are displayed. Now reinstalled with the Nouveau driver.

nvidia-driverpackage usually provide more features and better support.Look at the other legacy packages for older cards.See /usr/share/doc/nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver/README.txt.gzfor a complete list of supported GPUs and PCI IDs.Building the kernel module has been tested up to Linux 5.4.

@skottish :Yes... but the minimum part you posted is just exactly the missing one in ubuntu what I want to check now is whether using video drivers other than mesa would alter xorg.conf or not ? (I mean by using the gui tools that come with ubuntu for example)If they do change xorg.conf, then you're probably right about that it runs mesa by default when parts or all of xorg.conf is missing...and If It doesn't change xorg.conf then it probably uses other methods.. may be hal...

For normal single-screen configurations not using fglrx or nvidia, you can throw away xorg.conf and use xorg-server and its dependencies, drivers, etc from testing. If your display isn't autodetected correctly, you'll need to adjust things in xorg.conf, for input devices, configuration has to be done in hal fdi files with xorg from testing. 350c69d7ab
