Unity and GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M/integrated/SSE2/3DNOW!

I have used Linux Ubuntu for many years, with nVidia video cards and proprietary drivers, without big issues.
After Unity interface the problems for me became worse and Ubuntu is almost unusable. I have spent long time searching for a solution and have tried everything, without success.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 notebook, AMD Turion 64x2, GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M/PCI/SSE2/3DNOW!.
At this moment I’m using nvidia-304-updates driver (304.84), but I have tried all options before.

System font corruption, black screen, X crash, U.I. mess are some of the effects caused by nvidia bugs, even using nomodeset option.

Some of the bugs are listed here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/software-center/+bug/1015216
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-nouveau/+bug/1029901

Can you help me?

Regards,
Walter


Perhaps just a workaround, but have you thought about installing gnome-shell and ditching unity altogether? Might be worth a shot to see if the display issues are resolved:

vacaloca, thanks for the reply.
I do not want to install Gnome, really prefer the Unity interface.

There is a concrete fact: driver nvidia-304-updates is quite buggy and prevents many standard users (not specialized) from using Ubuntu, currently the most important linux distribution.

At least NVidia should disclose a release schedule of new driver versions with bug fixes, so that users can create alternatives to their problems. At least!
