comment How to use nvidia-xconfig with 2 GPUs and one is not NVidia?
If your Nvidia card is connected via the DVI port which is more typical since the VGA should be connected to the motherboard's VGA port in order to see boot messages, then you need something like nvidia-xconfig --connected-monitor="DFP" --busid="$(nvidia-xconfig --query-gpu-info | grep BusID | sed 's/PCI BusID : PCI:/PCI:/')" instead.

Didn't know about tzselect, thanks. If you enter wrong 'TZ' input you can get misleading results, e.g. TZ=London date Fri Jul 16 10:28:52 London 2010

Why bother down rating this answer? You're assuming that if ppl Google for "How do I input Greek characters in Ubuntu?", they are going to learn Greek next? Don't be silly. My response is helpful to some.
