Please update to envy_0.8.1-0ubuntu6_all.deb

here is the changelog:

* Fixed: “ati” was blacklisted instead of “fglrx”
* Fixed: ATI legacy driver didn’t install on 64bit systems
* Fixed: envy attempted to download Nvidia legacy installer from the non-legacy http address
* Fixed: potential problem with ATI legacy installer
* Changed: Envy doesn’t check the model of your card if you try to uninstall a driver (so that
for example you can uninstall the ATI driver if you have a Nvidia card plugged in)

  1. Ciao Alberto, innanzitutto complimenti per il lavoro svolto con Envy. Sto cercando di far funzionare la mia 8800 GTS su Ubuntu 6.10 32 bit, però dopo aver svolto tutti i passaggi di Envy con successo al momento del riavvio di X lo schermo mi diventa nero e da li non ci si schioda più…
    Ho provato anche con le tecniche della tua guida ma il risultato è il medesimo….
    Any idea?

  2. Ciao, ho aggiunto le righe Option descritte nella guida ma non cambia nulla. Una volta superato lo Splash Screen di Ubuntu il monitor mi segnala Nessun Segnale su DVI1. Mah, riproverò nel weekend. Cmq grazie per l’aiuto :)!

  3. Non sapevo che usassi il cavo DVI.

    Allora rimuovi le altre opzioni che avevi aggiunto e metti questa:
    Option “UseDisplayDevice” “DFP”

  4. Hi

    I had problems starting X after I removed and installed latest nvidia driver with envy.

    I will read through the support thread on ubuntuforums first, I just wanted to ask if you did any text log with envy install and remove? So it is easier to debug? Users with problems could post the log file…

    Just an idea. Nice work btw!

  5. Ciao, ora non posso provare perchè sono in ufficio. Cmq la mia 8800 GTS ha solamente 2 uscite DVI, non è possibile collegare il monitor in altra maniera. Proverò stasera o domani al max, grazie!

  6. Hello, I have a modem speedtouch and I use the driver speedtouch-ng. The problem is: When I go out of my cession it stop my internet connection and I can not downloade the driver with envy.

  7. Ubuntu updated to Kernel 2.6.17.11 and as usual on boot, dark screen, no problem, with ENVY, just re-install the driver and you are all set, thank you Alberto, the Envy utility is my lure to Ubuntu alone from the other distros.

  8. Ringrazio l’autore di ENVY per un software che mancava per ubuntu , ho fatto diverse installazione su diverse macchine va alla grande. Se si vuole che linux desktop si diffonda questa è la strada
    saluti e grazie Stenio

  9. pierluc:
    The only two messages I wrote in Italian (in response to Care) can be translated as follows:

    ‘boot in Ubuntu in Recovery mode and follow point 4 of the Problems Section of this guide of mine and then reboot by typing “reboot”:
    http://www.albertomilone.com/latest_nvidia_udsf_edgy.html

    and the solution to the problem was:
    ‘I didn’t know that you use a DVI cable.
    Remove all the options which I told you to add and add this one: “Option “UseDisplayDevice” “DFP” ‘

  10. Hi,

    i’ve got one question:

    Do I have to remove my old Nvidia-Driver (installed through apt-get) bevore I use envy or can I just run the script and it will remove my old driver and replace it with the new one automatically?

    Thanks,

    Tiantian

  11. Alberto, I was hacking your code to update ATI driver from 8.35 to 8.36 but change gtkenvy.py this:

    20: atilatest = ‘8.36.5’

    8.36.5 is the last ati driver, but, when run envy again no effects and envy try to install 8.35 again…. is any other line to change in this o other file to get an update ati driver installation???

    by de way, Great Job, this is the kind of soft to make people have a good reason to leave the window$ monopoly.

  12. I nuovi driver ATI catalyst 8.1 per Ubuntu 7.10 non sono stati ancora inseriti? Hanno qualche problema? Grazie e complimenti!
