New to Ubuntu and wondering if anyone else has been able to install Nvidia GeForce Experience on their ubuntu. (Preferably without WINE).

I haven’t been able to find any documentation on the internet about it, and haven't yet acquired the technical skills to figure it out by myself unfortunately.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a GTX 660 if that information is at all relevant.

All the features offered by Geforce Experience are designed exclusively for Windows.

Since it deals with hardware drivers and settings for Windows-only games, there also is no need for it on Ubuntu.

Yes I suppose so, I have used it for the recording functions too, but I didn't think about the fact they were windows only games that were being optimised anyway. So it's probably just as easy to find a different recording software (the one with experience wasn't anything special anyway, I just grew accustomed to using it along with the other features. Thanks for the response – Stephen Kehoe Dec 5 '13 at 13:25

One of the best features about geforce experience is that it makes updating the drivers easy (as well as detecting the video card). I would be happy to see something in Ubuntu that when run, detected any Nvidia cards, worked out what drivers were needed, downloaded them and installed them. At the moment the Nvidia drivers are a pain in Ubuntu, if they could get this all working and stable, that would rock!
