    I had the same problem. Launch Synaptic and then in quick search type "nvidia" in. You should see few results I don't remember the name of. Any way install the two packages with this pattern "xxx-core" and "xxx-qt". It works also for ATI. So if you have too many results with nvidia search try with ati. Packages are the same and support both.
    Running both KDE and GNOME BT5 flawlessly. Thank you !

    Sorry, it worked for me !
    You can try to use xrandr or xvidtune. But this gets a bit complex and you'll have to follow tutorials on Ubuntu forums. Google is your friend for that

    try : apt-get remove --purge nvidia-driver
    then : dpkg --configure -a
    then : apt-get install nvidia-driver while not logged into x

    had similar problems if this works after install
    do : apt-get install nvidia-driver while not logged into x again to make sure
    it should say nividia-driver already newest version
    if not you make need to do: dpkg --configure -a

    your fix simple 1.download the nvidia-dev-driver from nvidia's website 2.reboot computer and install the dev-driver before you start your xserver.
