You can get nvidia-current for the repository or from System Settings > Additional Drivers which is fine for most cards on Mint 12. If you have a GTX 460 v2 you'll need to upgrade to the latest 295.33 by adding the PPA, before installing nvidia-current:
- Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
If you have a very old card, you need nvidia-173 (GeForce 5xxx) or nvidia-96 (GeForce4 and earlier)
