I have installed Ubuntu recently but I coulnd't use the driver which I downloaded from Nvidia's official page and I am not sure it would be better if I was able to install it. I would like to ask how can I make sure my graphics card driver was updated somewhat by Ubuntu via Internet..

my card is Nvidia GeForce 210M



You can update with the following commands

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

You can verify your install by pressing the super key and typing

nvidia x server settings

Open that
