How am I supposed to install nvidia drivers from xorg-edgers? I try

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa -y
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-graphics-drivers-331

and I get

E: Unable to locate package nvidia-graphics-drivers-331

The Launchpad page says there is nvidia-graphics-drivers-331 for trusty, why wouldn't it install?

On the launchpad page, nvidia-graphics-drivers-331 is the name of the source package (you can't install it). this package once built generates the packages you're looking for.

See that page detailing the content of the source package

Basically you need to type the following command instead:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa -y
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-331
