After following the very helpful guide from Starcannon in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ghlight=nvidia I managed to get the installer working.
Unfortunately the installer is having problems of its own. It had a warning along the lines of 'couldn't find kernel compiler' and attempted to download something to do with the kernel. This didn't work either and I'm currently looking at:
"Error: unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernal source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured..."
This Leads to:
"Error: installation has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details
I've attached this file.
Any ideas on what I need to do to get this working? Thanks
