Install throught "Additional drivers" or try this
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-331
If it won't work, enter virtual console
CTRL + ALT + F1 give login and password when asked, go to location where you downloaded latest NVidia drivers and:
sudo service lightdm stop sudo chmod a+x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.20.run sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.20.run sudo reboot
Run this lines in a terminal, one after another:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-331 nvidia-settings-331
And then, reboot and you're good to go, with the official latest drivers. Other solutions to install from binaries from nvidia site have caused me a lot of troubles before, this is the best solution I've found and I've been using it the last four releases.
You can use the following command to install the drivers for your nvidia graphics card. it worked for me.
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
this will install the nvidia-settings too.
