I've recently installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS and successfully installed the nvidia driver for my gtx 550ti gpu... my question is, how do I enable the 3d vision since my monitor is 3d capable and I'm always using it for gaming...

thanks for the responses.

I believe that 3D (stereo) viewing with 3D Vision in Linux is supported only for Nvidia Quadro cards. Quadro series is intended for professional use.

Nvidia FAQ here.

In case somebody gets to this question and has a Quadro graphics card then here are some good instructions how to get stereo working on linux.
