Does Ubuntu support Nvidia and ATI graphics cards? Are drivers for the graphics card available? I ask this because when I installed Ubuntu in a flash drive and ran it on my pc with a msi Nvidia Geforce 210 graphics card, I didn't see anything on the display. But when I tried it with the default Intel graphics card on my pc it worked perfectly.

Please help

For nvidia install the proprietary driver sudo apt-get install nvidia-current - ATI cards (if not high end) are nicely supported out of the box by the open source radeon driver. Ubuntu 13.04 is an old release which is no longer supported. Please install 14.04 instead. – Takkat Jun 30 '14 at 7:40
