Install Nvidia Drivers on Linux Mint 13/14/15


Install Nvidia Drivers on Linux Mint 13/14/15

To fix Nvidia Optimus problems install 'Bumblebee' and 'laptop-mode-tools'.
These are working together to manage fan and cpu power-saving options. 
first:
 1)      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable
This will add bumblebee to the repository. You can also add the bumblebee source to the 'synaptics...' repository section in GUI style but coding in terminal is much easier.
After initiating Code 1 , in terminal write:
2)         sudo apt-get update
3)         sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia virtualgl linux-headers-generic laptop-mode-tools
When installing items finished, you need to alter some files as following:
4)         sudo gedit /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf
Go to section starting with [bumblebeed] and add 'nvidia' to => Driver=
should look like =>            Driver=nvidia
Then search for this part: [driver-nvidia] and look around in the section to find two lines like the following, if not add it:
                                         KernelDriver=nvidia-current
                                         Module=nvidia
Also read comments everytime, those are written for you to have a clue of what's going on. Sometimes the codes we need to add are just in comments '#' and are there. In that case you just need to uncomment it by removing # sign in the beginning of the code line.
Now, save and close the document, you'll come back to terminal. We need to alter on last file. So:
5)        sudo gedit /etc/init/bumblebeed.conf
Search for the following lines:
                                          start on
                                          stop on
They have some instructions in front of them. You need to alter them in order to look like the following:
                                start on    (runlevel [2345])
                                stop on     (runlevel [016])
save and close. You'll come back to terminal.
6)          sudo reboot

Linux Mint 15 Review: Arch's Nemesis? 


Linux Mint 15 is about to hit the web. Is this the distro for the disenfranchised Ubuntu user? We'll demo of some of Mint 15's best new features, look at MATE vs Cinnamon. And why Mint's real competition might be Arch Linux, and the Arch challenge is announced!

Is this Linux Mint's most ambitious release yet?==
I review both the Cinnamon and MATE desktops of Linux Mint 15. Nice polish all around with added speed in MATE 1.6 and features in Cinnamon 1.8.
