    found a great little tool for installing nvidia drivers

    apt-get install envyng-qt

    Launch EnvyNG's GUI by selecting it in the "Applications/System Tools" menu.
    select the recommended version
    click apply
    restart

    Default EnvyNG will not start

    I tried to use EnvyNG, even reinstalled it and installed Pyton 4, when i run EnvyNG nothing happens. I have Backtrack 4 installed to a hard drive. I have used EnvyNG before on ubuntu with no problems. Any suggestions.

    Use the drivers commind with Backtrack. If you don't know how, search this forum as pureh@te wrote a great tutorial on that.

    Its effective for Nvidia Cards enabled platform.I would rather suggest you to install Nvidia Linux binary drivers as original drivers from Nvidia works perfect with Nvidia chipset.
