    Nvidia Drivers

    So i recently upgraded my graphics card from a Ge Force 5700LE to Nvidia 7300 GT with 512mb of ram.

    I formatted Linux, and wanted to start a fresh, when attempting to install my graphics drivers using envy, i get the message "your graphics card does not appear to be supported install anyway?"

    What do i do?

    Any apps for Ubuntu That support recent graphics cards

    My system: 3.0GHZ P4
    RAM: 1.5GB

    Thanks for any help... P.S im kind of a newish user, got used to linux now but some things i cant get my head around.

    i would first try installing nvidia drivers with apt-get

    If that doesn't work, i'd do some googling on you "cardName Kubuntu"

    There's a little more to this but (just do a search on it and there are many HOWTOs):
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx
    i just got my Geforce FX Go5700 going after a long time of trying off and on. All i had to do was install that and enter one line of code into my xorg.conf file. It was an obscure line of code though... so there might be some little problems. But it seems like they are easily correctable if you can find the information.
