I am going to break my own rule which I arrived at last night for myself 
and post to this list as a response to the above. My last post to this 
list I have decided.

Give it up. You are wasting your time.

The man answered me in a message some days ago that he did NOT have 2 
*.so.* files in the directory /usr/lib/ which means that he does NOT 
have the proper nVidia driver installed.

Full stop. End of story.

Anything submitted as an attempt to help after this is simply a waste of 
effort and time - and for which you do not get paid nor even get a Thank 


You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.
