I have just upgraded to 13.10 from 13.04 and I am having hard time finding nvidia-settings to access it. After performing updatedb I can see it in the PATH but it is a dead symlink

$ ll /usr/bin/nvidia-settings
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 Apr 10  2013 /usr/bin/nvidia-settings -> /etc/alternatives/nvidia_settings
$ ll /etc/alternatives/nvidia_settings
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 56 Apr 10  2013 /etc/alternatives/nvidia_settings -> /usr/lib/nvidia-settings-304-updates/bin/nvidia-settings
$ ll /usr/lib/nvidia-settings-304-updates/bin/nvidia-settings
ls: cannot access /usr/lib/nvidia-settings-304-updates/bin/nvidia-settings: No such file or directory


$ dpkg -l | grep nvidia-settings

What I have done to fix it is:

Launch Software & Updates, go to Additional Software tab and mark nvidia-319 (the stable version not the updates one) and that worked.
