  1. I just tried to use this installer with a GTX 670. It does not see the card. It detects something from VMWare and then gives the option to either fix the current drivers or quit. Bummer….

      • Just tried running the script a few times on a fresh install of 12.04. Second pass, it saw Nvidia and gave the option of installing proprietary drivers. After a reboot, the GUI remained broken, with only the shell working. Nouveau re-install worked to bring back the GUI. It looks like an awesome script! This is definitely my fault for getting an X79 motherboard. It seems Ubuntu can be tricky with new hardware.

        • Perhaps Xorg-Edgers PPA is too “xtreme”. I will modify the script to give you the option to select between X-Swat (stable) and Xorg-Edgers (beta). Currently it uses Xorg-edgers PPA, which is a possible reason for your X break.

          Please notice that this is just the 1st version of this script. Thanks very much for the feedback 🙂

  2. Hello Sir…

    Nice tutorial…

    I want yo ask one question..

    My software updater already has this update showing to install…

    So should I use it along with many other updates that are listed on update manager..??

    The changers are like this …

    Changes for the versions:
    Installed version: 304.37-0ubuntu1~precise~xup1
    Available version: 304.43-0ubuntu1~precise~xup1

    Thank You 🙂

    • Running the script will automatically update your version to 304.43 along with some proper configuration. Although, if you want to play on the “safe” road please feel free to use the update manager method. Thanks for your kind words 🙂

  3. Thank you, worked great! I was fighting through getting 304.43 installed. I had downloaded the driver from nVidia and while searching how to kill nVidia X found this. This was a lot simpler, and gives me a restore from Terminal if things go wrong. Thanks again.
