The documentation is provided on the Ubuntu wiki here.

Basic steps:

sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get install  nvidia-kernel-common nvidia-current nvidia-settings 

Finally change the driver on the Xorg.conf

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Driver  "nvidia"
  • @Braiam thanks for the tips. Edited for completeness.

  • If it is optimus graphics, installing nvidia forcefully will cause black screen.
