Internet and video not working properly in Ubuntu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

I have Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. In my PC I have a GTX 1060 and on Linux boot up the animations that I would usually see for opening windows and stuff did not work anymore. In the software updates and additional drivers it said I was using the nouveau driver as usual, but it did not seem to work. Also the internet cable I have plugged in is not recognized and thus I have no internet access on linux. There does not even show that a cable is plugged in, there is nothing recognized. When I boot up Windows 10 everything works normally.

My assumption would be that the drivers did not load. Can you please help me?

Would you be able to insert a live usb with ubuntu 18.04 and see if it's still having issues? If it seems fixed on the live usb, would you be able to reinstall ubuntu on your PC?

Yeah there is no problem in reinstalling Ubuntu, I have everything backed up, but that is what I was trying to avoid. I am going to try on a live USB and maybe try to update from ISO image and see.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Yes I think there was a small update, like 100MB, but it was not a kernel update, so it should work. Anyway I solved it, I knew I need the PC today so I reinstalled Linux, now everything works fine with the latest updates.
