I know there's a ton more posts like this but now of them helped me, everytime I install a proprietary nvidia driver my desktop doesn't show up but when I'm using noveau it's quite evident it's not the right driver because the screen flickers and a lot of effects are weird

I managed to have 5 drivers apear in the additional drivers section by running Sudo Apt get linux-headers-generic and I tried all of them, they were the 304 and 304 experimental and the 310 and 310 experimental, ( and the noveau one) but all of them did pretty much the same thing

Please help I have a nvidia GeForce gt 640
