Hi just go to 'System Settings' and under 'Hardware' section click on 'Additional Drivers'. It will automatically search for drivers and it will ask if you want to install the graphics drivers.

In short

System Settings -> 'Hardware' section -> Additional Drivers


You can search for System Settings in unity dash.

Just hit Super Key(that key which has windows logo between left Ctrl and left Alt on the bottom left of keyboard) and type System Settings and hit [ENTER] to open it.

I don't have "Additional Drivers" in my Hardware section. Could it be hidden? (12.04 LTS) –  Nathan Hazout Nov 19 '13 at 15:43
Try going to Software and Updates. It should be the last tab in the pop up. –  strider Apr 5 at 18:33

You can also use the stable PPA, if you want to stay updated with your drivers:

  1. Open a terminal and enter this command:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
  2. Reboot your system and you're done
