I have just installed Ubuntu 13.10 x64. After installing
nvidia-settings-319-updates I don't have anything in additional drivers tab of software and updates.
Additionally when I run
nvidia-settings I get this:
You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run
nvidia-xconfigas root), and restart the X server.
I don't have

after making some more mess with drivers I reinstalled system (I found this option faster than playing with drivers), but still additional drivers tab is empty. Installing 'nvidia-319-updates' causes black screen after log in (with removed xorg.conf, with not removed i have extremely low resolution and also black screen)
black screen was caused bu this bug this bug. now it works, but 'nvidia-settings' are empty (but there is no information that I am not using nvidia drivers so I guess that they are ok)
Also additional drivers tab is still empty:
