I don't have my nvidia 8400gm graphics card included in additional drivers in ubuntu 12.10 64bit. Previously it was working fine on ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit. here is the screenshot
OK so I just got Ubuntu the other month or so. I'm running the 11.04 version currently and trying to install drivers for a Nvidia graphics card (it's my brother's computer and he currently cannot find the number of the card right now). I read that, to install the proper drivers for gaming, I would need to go into "Additional Drivers" and choose them myself.
