    Don't get the driver from Ubuntu repo's, download it on NVidia's site for one, I ALWAYS get problems on ANY distro downloading a driver over apt-get, yum, etc.. Even though I have a ATI card it's the same ballgame
    • 1. download the drivers off NVidia
      2. get the sources for your kernel
      3. run the installer
      4. run the config tool for the driver
      5. ???
      6. PROFIT!!!

    NOTE: The last 2 lines are a regular joke on the geek news site(Slashdot) pay no mind to them.
    Nothing is worse than ten penguins fighting over which is better, vi or emacs.

    if you followed all those, start up gnome-termal or what ever you have and just type nvidia-settings and you should be able to find it there...

    Work spot on for me too. I did try the way that it says on the nVidia site, and found it to be a real nightmare, so I did it via synaptic instead, and it work effortlessly.
