I have a NVIDIA graphics card and the driver that the system found works okay. I would like to download something better. How hard is it to find and install them?


In Ubuntu 13.10 go to System Settings->Software & Updates->Additional Drivers And it should list multiple choices. Nouveau is the open-source default. The one I selected for my nvidia was:

Using NVIDIA binary Xorg dirver, kernel module and VDPAU library from nvidia-319-updates (proprietary)

Basically to determine what you're wanting: 1. Proprietary, this means made by NVIDIA 2. Highest number available 3. Updates, from my understanding this will auto-update with the launch a new revision
