Hi

I'm a new user of Trisquel but i have two problems.

One of them is that the screen resolution is very low and fullscreen videos lags.

So i want to install the free Nouveau drivers for Nvidia wich fully support 2D ans a lot of 3D too.

My card is an Nvidia 9300 , I did the following as founded on this forum :

save of the actual xorg.conf
sudo apt-get install nouveau-kernel-source
edit xorg.conf (driver "nouveau")
reboot

and I have an emergency graphical session launched by X telling me "nouveau" module can't be loaded blablabla..

so i just use the save of my xorg.conf, remove the package and the graphical session is back ... :/

How can I install Nouveau on Trisquel 3.0

Thanks

In terminal ype:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

Under "Devices" in xorg.conf add the lines:

Identifier "nvidia"
Driver "nouveau"

Thanks a lot mate I now have a decent resolution

But.. one problems left :/ when i open a video (tested with .mp4) on Totem, it crash instantly..

Output when I launch totem from the Terminal :

hardisk@hardisk-desktop:~$ totem
/var/lib/python-support/python2.6/gdata/tlslite/utils/cryptomath.py:9: DeprecationWarning: the sha module is deprecated; use the hashlib module instead
import sha
The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 75 error_code 8 request_code 133 minor_code 19)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Tried it, not working

Here is the solution for the people who have it :

go into : gstreamer-properties (type it on a terminal)

And change the first option in the video tab to X without ...

Working

You can also try installing the version of Totem player that uses the xine backend instead of gstreamer from the repos, and see which version works better for you.
