Steve Elliott:
Just installed Linux (Mint) yesterday on a spare drive and all seems to working ok - but I'm running in software mode and can't seem to get into hardware accelerated mode - any ideas?

Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 (2Gb).

Driver Manager shows Nvidia 384 Driver, but makes no difference when selected.

Qube:
Is any of the info in these links of use? :

https://mintguide.org/system/802-install-the-nvidia-driver-384-on-linux-mint.html

http://www.howtoeverything.net/linux/hardware/installing-nvidia-drivers-in-linux-mint

I note that the 2nd link makes reference to :


--- Quote ---- THIS STEP IS CRITICAL: after the installation is finished execute the following command: sudo nvidia-xconfig

- nvidia-xconfig creates a xorg.conf file that tells the kernel which driver to use. Other drivers don't need this config file anymore so it has to be created. Also the installation of the driver ends with the message that the nouveau driver is still active and the easiest solution is to just reboot, without this step you'll end up with system without a graphical interface. If you are allready at that point, just login and enter sudo nvidia-xconfig now

--- End quote ---

Steve Elliott:
Thanks Qube I'll take a look.

I now have sound codecs working for YouTube and general sound.  Just feeling my way around Linux at the mo.

Steve Elliott:
Using the first link: 'sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa' enables Driver Manager to show more Nvidia Driver versions now - and none of them work.

Hmm I thought driver problems were a thing of the past on Linux these days.   :(

this is a good place to start with a new system:
enter from command line:
sudo apt-get install g++-multilib libopenal-dev libpulse-dev libsdl2-dev
