I just setup my Quantal Quetzal partition and installed a couple days ago and have been giving Neavou a test drive since I've never really used it. After a couple days and use its just annoyingly slow and sluggish.

I decided I want to install the latest nvidia drivers again, like on my Percise partition, but the Additional Drivers window is now populated with a lot of new drivers and is not very specific about versions.

Which one should I activate for my nvidia 7300le card?

As a work-around, I'd suggest you use synaptic to innstall the driver you normally use, until things get straightened out.

I have a 7300gt; both the noveau and nvidia drivers worked. For nvidia,


sudo apt-get install nvidia-current-updates nvidia-common nvidia-settings-updates

works for me.

for me nvidia-current-updates and nvidia-settings-updates fail with error code 1 .
