Linux Mint Nvidia Drivers
I’ve had a bit of a mare trying to get brightness working on a Samsung laptop in Linux Mint. As yet.. still no working brightness control. In the process of that I completely screwed up the NVidia drivers.
Hint: Ignore the Nvidia website on Mint or Ubuntu. Head straight for the ubuntu-swat-x repo.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
Update: The solution is post #5 here: http://www.voria.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1040
