    Post Graphics Driver Problem - Troubles After Installation


    I installed this driver: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.05.pkg1.run
    for my 9600 GT card, and it worked. I then rebooted, and I was presented to a "low graphics mode" notification. It seems I have to install the driver each time I restart my computer, does anyone know how this can be fixed?

    Try running the command "sudo displayconfig-gtk" or "sudo nvidia-xconfig" to reconfigure the graphics settings. Unfortunately Ubuntu tries to use autodetection for configuing graphics cards and it does not seem to do it very well.

    I ran those commands, and entered my monitor model and nvidia driver, ran a configuration test:
    Code:
    robert@desktop:~$ sudo displayconfig-gtk
    [sudo] password for robert: 
    on_button_test_config_clicked()
    xauth:  creating new authority file /tmp/dcg-Wn7KAq6043/xauthority
    Got pid 6063
    (0, 0)
    checkpoint 1
    None
    False
    Sorry, this configuration video card driver
    and monitor doesn't appear to work:
    
    Messages from the X server:
    (EE) No devices detected.
    Fatal server error:
    Code:
    robert@desktop:~$ sudo echo nvidia >> /etc/modules
    bash: /etc/modules: Permission denied
