I have a problem with the Driver & update window. I can't install the proprietary nVidia drivers.

I select the top driver (a nVidia one) and hit apply. But it goes back to the 3rd option - Nouveau.


Try with a terminal.

Open terminal, and run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update

Then install the driver:

sudo apt-get install nvidia-337

Change 337 to any version you want - I'd recommend 304, 331 or 349. I'm using 349.
