Im not using a docker. That is the KDE4 panel. Those are standard Kwin effects and the rest is all Plasma.
As far as the drivers, you can try PPA's and may have some success. I tried them and they failed on kernel upgrades and I still had a little bit of weird artefacting with them. Its just easier for me to get the driver from Nvidia and reinstall it each time. Its a self installing executable that does everything automatically:
CTRL+ALT+F1, or boot into safe mode, then
sudo (omit sudo if in safe mode) sh NVIDIA..... .run
