    Nvidia Driver not Used

    I'm a Ratel owner and recently did a complete reinstall with the new 14.04. I installed the Nvidia driver as directed
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install system76-driver-nvidia
    but when I bring up the System76 driver window, it tells me that all drivers are being provided by Ubuntu:

    Am I missing something?

    I see the same thing. However if you go to System Settings / Software & Updates / Additional Drivers

    it says that the nVidia driver is in use (specifically 331.38 from nvidia-331-updates).

    Confusing? Yes. Indicative of an actual problem? Maybe not.

    /var/log/Xorg.0.log suggests that the nVidia driver is in use.
