    Update or Install?
    Are you aware you are in a Development Forum?
    If you are just trying to install them
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install nvidia-331
    You will have to reboot to get your new driver..
    Welcome to Ubuntu!
    Regards

    Thats the whole thing zika. On the system in question there is no lightdm.conf Only lightdm.conf.d which contains the file 10-unity-system-compositor.conf
