    I hope this can help:

    And I hope it gets the latest drivers. I use ATI so don't know much about the exact nvidia commands. That shows the terminal installation.

    No problem, glad you got it going.

    I know it's frustrating when things don't work out of the box but I strongly believe that we need to appreciate the effort developers put in open source even if sometimes they don't have full cooperation of manufacturers and the attention those same manufacturers would pay to MS.

    Hi!, darkod,

    Thanks for Posting the Link for the xswat updates Ubuntu nvidia driver.
    http://www.noobslab.com/2011/09/nvid...0-oneiric.html

    It successfully installed nvidia-current version " 295.49-0ubuntu1~precise~xup1".

    As far as I can tell, with a GT 7650 card on 12.04 LTS, it works exactly the same as 295.49 downloaded from Nvidia downloads.

    To add to the confusion: Additional Drivers now shows four versions of nvidia-current, though as it does not identify the version numbers at all clearly and which video cards each support is very vague; that is no help at all.

    Chao, bogan.

    Hi!, All.

    There is a new nvidia driver version 295.53 available from nvidia downloads. This Link is for the 32 bit version, check you get the correct one.
    http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/linux...driver-uk.html

    Edit: Updated Thursday May 17th;

    Code:
    nvidia-installer --latest
    now returns: v295.53 and the currently installed version, without altering anything.


    Code:
    nvidia-installer -f
    will install 295.53 after un-installing the previous version.

    NVNews says of version 295.53:
    QUOTE:
    Please note: This NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release supports GeForce 6xxx and newer NVIDIA GPUs,
    GeForce4 and older GPUs are supported through the 96.43.xx and 71.86.xx NVIDIA legacy graphics drivers.
    GeForce FX GPUs are supported through the 173.14.xx NVIDIA legacy graphics drivers.
