While digging around in the Kubuntu desktop, I looked at "System/Hardware Drivers" and noticed that the NVIDIA proprietary driver was not in use. I have often read that this driver was better, enabling more desirable features than the standard Linux driver. There was a tempting "activate" button that I almost hit, but decided to check the forum and wiki beforehand. I didn't see much on the forums, but I found a section on display drivers in the tutorials.http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Display_Drivers
This outlines a more complicated way of manually loading the driver. Should I use this procedure from the tutorial or is it outdated? Should I press the activate button on the Kubuntu desktop or will that break the system? Should I be messing with the proprietary driver at all?
As my signature shows, I have an ASUS P5N7A-VM with onboard GeForce 9300 chipset. Thanks in advance.
