Hey folks...

I see the Nvidia Driver version 180 is available in the repositories. I have version 177 installed and active, but how can I activate the 180 driver?

The Hardware Drivers dialog only shows versions 173 and 177.

Any ideas? I'm sure it's simple, but I *am* still learning. :)

just install nvidia-glx-180 from synaptic and restart your computer :popcorn:

EDIT: It will remove 177 and install 180, Also you don't have to do any configuration because installing 177 did that for you. It will work after a restart.
