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:
Can you help me?
