    Exclamation Hello, I need help with a problem

    this is my first post, and I don't know if this is even a good idea to send this here, but I've searched everywhere and I am very desperate for a solution to this following problem:



    I am running ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
    Trying to use mupen64 with M64py frontend
    Running super Mario 64

    So whenever I try to run a game, the sound is disturbingly choppy, and the fps is incredibly slow . I have no idea what plugins to use and what settings to set. And I really want to fix this without having to overclock anything or upgrade any hardware because that costs MONEY. So can someone give my a simple solution for this? I can't take it anymore

    I hope that's enough, because it is what I could find

    Whats your actual graphics card? looks like an nvidia - switch to the proprietary drivers. Go to the software settings (don't remember the actual name, the one where you can access ppas (Open software updates and click on settings) there should be a tab with "additional drivers" that should give you the option to switch to proprietary nvidia driver) also mupen64plus 2.1 doesn't exist, are you using the one provided in the repos?

    Sorry, it says mupen64plus 2.0.0. I mixed up the m64py version with the mupen64plus version. I just looked up mupen64 on google, found a download for it on the software center:
    Plugin-based Nintendo 64 emulator (transitional dummy package).
    It says "NVIDIA Corporation: G96 [GeForce 9500 GT] as the card model, and on the bottom of that it says this device is using an alternate driver.
    It says no proprietary drivers are in use, and there a lot of drivers to choose from. Can you tell me exactly how to switch to a proprietary driver?

    yea use one of the ones to choose from iirc one of the many should have a [Recommended] label and its usually not bad to start with that

    I didn't notice, how stupid of me, that out of the 6 drivers to choose from, 4 say (proprietary) at the end, 1 says (proprietary, tested), and one says (open source), which is the one it was set to

    And first of all, none of the drivers are recommended, and second, when I tried switching to a different driver, well...let's just say that it took around 45 minutes to get my computer booting properly again rather than just going into an eternal black screen

    Can you list your available drivers? Or give a screencap of the drivers window? I'd argue the "tested" one is the one to try. Are you on a laptop with hybrid graphics? Can you post the output of
    Code:
    lspci -v
    in [ CODE ]-tags (without spaces)?
