Thread: Fresh Install

Hybrid View

    Default Fresh Install

    Hello! Finally got this too install.

    First thing is first:

    I went into /.mozilla and created the folder plugins, got the 64 bit flash and youtube works! Flash works!

    Hurray! But my update manager keeps popping up with this:




    Next I installed the nvidia driver for my GTX260 with the one click. I have two monitors and I have gone into the Nvidia config and tried activating the second one, save xfig and save config..but no dice I cannot get the second monitor to start up.(Even after rebooting).

    It does not know you installed flash manually.

    If I recall you must run the NVIDIA config program as root for the changes to take.

    So I hit yes on this part?

    Code:
    The following package is going to be upgraded:
      pullin-flash-player
    
    1 package to upgrade.
    Overall download size: 4.0 KiB. No additional space will be used or freed after
    the operation.
    Continue? [y/n/?]
    I've installed flash 64 bit manually and mozilla sees it.

    I see.
    Don't install this, if you installed the _64 flash

    Open Software Management and find the flash-player it's trying to install and the pullin package (you may need to delete this) and then taboo them both.

    Hey sorry but I don't understand what you mean by the word

    "taboo"

    Does that mean delete and all is fine, so forget?

    Packages that are not installed can be marked as Taboo. or Never Install. Otherwise this flash package will keep trying to install itself

    Sweet I will try that, when I get home of course =)


    Also why is there no documentation on obtaining 3D support for my nvidia card? Unless I am looking at the wrong spot, if so please direct me where to go.

    If you installed the proprietary driver you will have 3D support.
