Just a note on my previous blog post about the release of Envy 0.9.7:
If this new release of Envy doesn’t work for you (but the previous releases did) you can follow these instructions to both restore your previous settings and send me a report of what happened.
First of all, Envy makes a backup of your xorg.conf therefore you might want to restore it by following these steps:
Boot in Recovery Mode (select it from the GRUB menu)
you’ll see xorg.conf and other backup files (e.g. xorg.conf_backup_200703022015)
replace xorg.conf with a backup:
cp name_of_your_backup_file xorg.conf
then reboot by typing:
You should be back to your previous configuration. If not, just type:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
and set the driver to “vesa”. Press Enter whenever you don’t know the answer to the questions you’ll be asked.
At this point you can send me a copy of your /var/log/envy-installer.log so that I can see what went wrong or just copy the file to your home folder so that you can send it to me later (please, do it before uninstalling Envy).
Then you might want to remove envy in order to install the previous release (0.9.6) (provided that it worked better for you):
sudo apt-get --purge remove envy
wget -c http://albertomilone.com/ubuntu/nvidia/scripts/envy_0.9.6-0ubuntu2_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i envy_0.9.6*.deb
Then launch envy.
Good night from Italy.
