Envy Script

Filed under
Linux

Have you ever wanted an easy way to install your Nvidia or Ati card in your Ubuntu or Debian(Etch) box? Well the answer is in http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html and it's called Envy.
The process installing Nvidia or Ati drivers is very fast..only a few clicks plus you don't have to remove any previous drivers. It does it all.

From http://albertomilone.com :

Envy

It is an application (written in Python and PyGTK) which automates the installation of both the ATI and the Nvidia proprietary driver on Ubuntu (Dapper and Edgy)*. Envy downloads the driver which your graphic card model needs, installs all the compilers, etc., sets up the Xserver configuration file for you and makes sure that the driver integrates nicely with Ubuntu's restricted modules.

* Now on Feisty and Debian Etch

Well done mr Alberto Smile

  • The Best Graphics Card Brands For NVIDIA/AMD GPUs As A Linux Consumer?
    One of the most frequent topics I'm emailed about is any brand recommendations among NVIDIA and AMD AIB partners for graphics cards. For Linux users, is there a particular brand preference for graphics cards? The short story is, no, there isn't one particular brand when selecting either a GeForce or Radeon graphics card that a Linux gamer/enthusiast should go with over another AIB partner. Over the past 12 years of running Phoronix, there has been no single AIB partner that superbly stands out compared to the rest when it comes to graphics card AIB partner brands like ASUS, Zotac, HIS, MSI, etc. They all work under Linux, rarely the AIB differences extend beyond the heatsink/cooler and any default clock speed differences, and I haven't seen one that's over-the-top crazy about Linux. I also haven't seen any major partner consistently put the Tux logo or other Linux markings on their product packaging, let alone incorporate any Linux drivers onto their CD/DVD driver media.
