New Laptop (Lenovo Z570) ( admin posted on November 11th, 2011 )

I updated my laptop to unity (ubuntu 11.10), still with Lightnings though:-

After updating to proprietary drivers (big mistake) it took 2 days to figure out how to get back any graphics at all. Text login was not fun for the firstĀ  1 1/2 days, then sadly I started to like it.

So if anyone else has a Lenovo Z570 with Nvidia Cuda Geforce GT520M – leave it alone for the moment.

Here is the code I used to restore:-

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo apt-get install –reinstall xserver-xorg-coreĀ  libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
reboot

This is mainly for me in case I try it again, but maybe will help someone else.
