    cd /etc/init.d/gdm start
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    when you say 'chmod +x <x86_version of Nvidia>'
    do you mean chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.08.pkg1.run?
    i done those other commands then that and it came up 'Cannot access NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.08.pkg1.run: no such file or directory'
    still no luck

    It means that file is not in the path. Delete all Nvidia files from Desktop and save NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.08.pkg1.run on Desktop. Execute those commands again.
    Type chmod +x NVIDIA and hit TAB key twice. It will complete filename itself.
    In case nothing works, execute this
    Code:
    cd /home/marc/Desktop
    ls
    cat /etc/lsb-release
    Post output here.

    where did you download the installer to? you have to use the command 'cd' to go to the directory it is downloaded to
    then you do
    Code:
    sudo sh NVIDIA...whatever.run
    all you have to do is start to type NVIDIA and then use tab button to complete that way you don't worry about incorrectly typing it in

    while in your /home/mark/Desktop folder execute this
    Code:
    sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.08-pkg1.run
    like I said, the best way is to start typing NVIDIA then use the tab button on the keyboard to autocomplete it, case matters
