I’m a bit puzzled as to why anyone would want to install the proprietary drivers, when the free-software drivers are packaged with Ubuntu anyway. From the discussion, the free-software drivers seem to be of better quality, and I’d expect anyone running Linux to be fully aware of all the other benefits of using non-proprietary software.
@Neil not everything is working with the free drivers. I cant render on my GPU for example. the software doesnt recognizes any gpu. but anyway, this problem seems to persist. I am not able to install the drivers due to dkms error and installing new dkms hints that its already up to date.
after reboot i am as well stuck in the login loop. I hope this gets fixed soon. I am eager to try ubuntu for the first time, but this is really annoying.
