First you would need to find which video card you have: Intel or Nvidia. If you have Nvidia, drivers are not a problem. You can download envyng and it will do it for you, or download the nvidia driver from the nvidia website. In terminal, do "sh <executable file here.sh>" and it'll be automatic from there.

I'm not sure if Intel has drivers needed to be installed.

Go there if you need the intel driver.

if have have an Nvidia card, open up the terminal (command prompt) and type this.

sudo apt-get install envyng-core envyng-qt

this program will install the lastest drivers for ATI and Nvidia cards.
(except for the ati X1050 because it sucks)
