Would be great if whatever is wrong with the Restricted Drivers Manager install gets fixed, though, linix people trying out Ubuntu aren’t going to figure out to use envyng instead, and even if they do they’ll probably be frustrated at having to download and install something “extra” just to get sl2216w machine up and running to play with it.


I used the GUI but you could use the command line by typing Code:. I had a problem setting up mine as well. A good place to start is http: Price of EUR was in autumn in Helsinki.

If you have a DVI connector, setup is easy – see 10 line explanation below. Other bug subscribers Subscribe someone else. Did you install the driver from the repositories or did you use the one straight from nvidia? I have exactly al2216w problem.

Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux? You have an unsupported chipset and your driver revision is to old.
