Re: Nvidia gt540m Driver
Hey, if your GPU is supported, this may help you. It's a copy-paste from a video of mine.
Hope it helps.
1st: Open Terminal and run "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates"
2nd: Then run: "sudo apt-get purge nvidia*"
(to remove any unneeded nvidia packages that could interfere with the setup)
3rd: After that in the terminal type:
"sudo apt-get update"
"sudo apt-get install nvidia-current"
4th: After it downloads the latest drivers and installs them, go to your Update Manager, refresh updates and get any Ubuntu-X team updates(then run "sudo nvidia-xconfig"), then restart.
If followed correctly your NVIDIA drivers should work perfectly.
