How to install k3b 1.0.5 in Mint 8?

Hi guys, I searched the boards and cant find articles on the above subject. So may I ask, is there a way to install k3b 1.0.5 in Mint 8 and future Mint versions? K3B 1.0.5 is what I have in Mint 7 and found it to be trouble-free. Newer versions of k3b are either "alphas or betas" and were prone to e...

Re: nvidia restricted driver completely breaks xorg.conf

Why not try the latest NVIDIA driver from nvidia.com itself and install it manually? I have no luck using ENVY or Mint's Restricted Driver Dialog box. But manually installing the driver from nvidia always worked flawlessly- granted I'm using the 32-bit edition.

When I consider that the Windows version of this driver (181.22) caused BSOD on my WinXP and the fact that proprietary graphics drivers have been blamed for problems with Linux operat...
