Driver problem


I just rebooted my workstation.

Now the nvidia driver is not loading.

$ nvidia-smi
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

$ nvidia-settings
ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded
ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system
(nvidia-settings:6263): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 15:32:10.729: g_object_unref: assertion ‘G_IS_OBJECT (object)’ failed

I dont know what to do…

I have the exact same problem…

Found any solution?



What I did:

First I removed all nvidia drivers:
$ sudo apt-get --purge remove ‘nvidia*’

Added this repo
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

Checking which drivers is recommended
$ ubuntu-drivers devices

Then installing the recommended driver via software&updates

Now it works.
