Nvidia 319.12 on Ubuntu 13.04

I’ve been wanting to install the latest Nvidia driver on my laptop for a while. I need to set it up working with bumblebee as it is a laptop with Optimus technology. It’s been working really nice with the stable driver, but I’ve just been wanting to have the bleeding edge for once.

After a bit of searching around I found this blogpost with a step-by-step guide to installing it:

Thanks orkultus!

 

For now all I’ve tested is running glxspheres with it, but that worked. I will try out something a bit heavier tomorrow and see how that goes.

 

Update 27.05.13 – Tried out some games, and my first impression is that this really improved the gameplay. I’m not much of a benchmarker, but the overall feeling is much better!
