    No!

    This is a proprietary driver, and has nothing to do with apt. You will need to compile it, in a way similar to installing the nVidia proprietary driver. At the top of the drivers download page, there is a link to installation instructions.

    https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206...cat91-inst.pdf

    To install this, you most likely need to install these packages first (using apt):

    build-essential
    linux-source
    linux-headers

    Then read these instructions:

    Ubuntu Intrepid Installation Guide - cchtml.com

    These are for Ubuntu 8.10. If you have a different version, chose the correct instructions from here:

    Ubuntu - cchtml.com
