I’m writing an article on switching to Linux as a professional for 2 weeks, working together with Dell.
They were so kind as to provide a few laptops, docks and peripherals.
The XPS is working quite alright, the dock is giving me some issues, but most of all, it’s underpowered for my use.
I have a quite hefty Precision 5520 with touch screen and an NVIDIA Quadro M1200 that I would like to use.
Now, (of course) the NVIDIA drivers are giving me lots of trouble, none of the walk-throughs I have found have worked for me so far.
The last thing I tried now:
- Installing the official NVIDIA drivers (.run file) > got just a mouse pointer
- Installed nvidia-utils, ran nvidia-xconfig > get psmouse serio1: synaptics: Unable to initialize device
Is there anyone willing to help me out and provide me with some feedback, so I can get the most out of this opportunity,
and hopefully convince a few people that these things will be solved soon? I am a Linux fan and I would love to tell a good story.
