Ralf,

I am moving between 2 computers, 12.04 on the problem maching and my 
laptop so I missed this msg.

When I do ls -hAl nvidia-304*131*deb  It says  Can not access 
nvidia-304*131*deb no such file or directory.

This must be why the commands you gave me in later msg failed.

ls shows the files are there, I don't undedrstand what is going on.

Regards,  Jim
