    Need help installing NVIDIA driver

    Just did a new install of Ubuntu 12.10 on my Serp6. I followed the instructions at http://knowledge76.com/index.php/Restoring_Your_System
    My video card is a NVIDIA G92[GeForce GTX 258M]
    Unfortunately, I am seeing the following error message:

    You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run 'nvidia-xconfig' as root], and restart the X server.

    What steps should I follow to install the correct driver and get it to work?

    I had the same problem installing NVIDIA drivers on 12.10, you probably need to install the headers for your kernel.

    Just type the following into terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    Then just re-install NVIDIA drivers (I'm assuming you're using 310 experimental)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-experimental-310
    Just reboot after that and you should be good to go!

    Wow, your response was quick and very helpful.
    NVIDIA driver is now installed.
    Thank you very much.
