I have Ubuntu 12.04.1 and nVidia gtx 560

The "Additional Drivers" in system setting is empty!

How can I install the driver...?

Should I download them from the GeForce.com ?

Try enabling the X Updates PPA (see Adding this PPA to your system). It contains the latest stable release of the nVidia graphics drivers (304.43 at the time of writing).

In case 'Additional Drivers' (actually that's Jocky) stays empty, install it like this:

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings

  • @SAM You're really hitting a bug here. X-Updates PPA contains packages that most probably will be included in the future 12.10 release.
