    Are you running Ubuntu Natty and you suspect your spanky Nvidia card might have a problem? Think again. This article explains how to troubleshoot the Nvidia driver activated but not in use error message in the Additional Drivers menu in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, including checking Nvidia X Server settings control panel, Unity compatibility, lsmod output, running Compiz effects, and more. A lesson in Linux troubleshooting, drivers and bogus messages.
