"The installation of new NVIDIA drivers can be a problem sometimes, especially if you are not accustomed to the way things usually work on a Linux operating system.

This is where this tutorial will come in handy, to help regular users benefit from the most recent NVIDIA drivers, 331.20.

There are just a couple of ways of installing the NVIDIA driver on an Ubuntu system: the easy way and the hard way. The easy way is also the most straightforward, but it requires a working Internet connection. This method will also introduce you to the beautiful world of PPAs."
