[ubuntu] Graphic card driver problem

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have an ASUS g51vx which has a NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 260M CUDA 1gb graphics card. I have installed ubuntu 9.10 32bit using VMware player running from windows vista 64 bit. I am quite a newbie when it comes to using linux. I tried to install drivers for my graphics card but none of them seem to be working. I tried to find the appropriate driver from the nvidia site but all of them gave an error like You do not appear to have an NVIDIA GPU supported by the xxxx NVIDIA Linux graphics driver installed in this system. lspci did not list any NVIDIA g (Hardware)
