Samsung RC512 & Ubuntu = No OpenGL ...

Can anyone change that?


A quick search shows this has the NVIDIA® GeForce GT 525M chipset. If that is correct Goto and download either 32bit or 64bit geforce drivers that corresponds to your ubuntu version.

Then on ubuntu 11.10

sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev 
sudo service lightdm stop
# note above kills graphical desktop manager to allow nvidia driver 
# to be installed, so login now and complete following
sudo sh /path/to/your/
sudo service lightdm start

On older ubuntu replace “lightdm” with “gdm”

Note, everytime ubuntu updates your kernel you will need to repeat above so keep your nvidia*.run file around in a handy location.
