View Full Version : [ubuntu] NVIDIA driver selection choice

September 11th, 2011, 12:41 PM
Hello, I have a little problem in selecting Nvidia drivers from Additional Drivers on my Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 1. There are bunch of drivers that I can select from. Currently, I'm selecting Nouveau but I would like to go to proprietary drivers. I am pretty confused with the choice of drivers it offered (See Screenshot). Is the accelerated driver the same as the binary ones?

P.S I am not able to use the current driver version as the driver has a bug with GeForce 7 card and my Nvidia card model is GeForce 7500 LE.
