[Bug 1310551] Re: NVIDIA proprietary driver 331.38 from package nvidia-331 on Xubuntu 14.04 causes display to hang


I have the same problem!

I'm using Ubuntu 14.10 64bit with nvidia binary driver 331.113 from nvidia-updates.
My system is a Tuxedo Book XC1702 with Intel HD Graphics 4600. Desktop is Ubuntu standard (Unity)

  NVIDIA proprietary driver 331.38 from package nvidia-331 on Xubuntu
  14.04 causes display to hang

Status in nvidia-graphics-drivers-331 package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On 14.04 I am getting an issue on my Thinkpad T520 where running the
  "proprietary,tested" 331.38 driver causes my display to hang. It seems
  to stay that way until I switch to tty6 with ctrl+alt+f6 and then back
  to tty7 which has the display, this causes it to un-hang. This then
  happens back and forth. I am not sure but it might be triggered by
  clicking things, opening windows and such. The problem disappears when
  switching back to the open source driver.

  Should I try an even newer driver from nvidia, or is there any more
  information you need for troubleshooting?
