Kubuntu is a very easy system to work with. I've put together a short one pager to get you the Nvidia driver installed. Its pretty simple and works great!!
I've found that I'm using Kubuntu more and more. So this is the first one of the supplemental How-To's concerning a specific config for Kubuntu. We are going to install the Nvidia drivers so we can get all the benefits that video acceleration offers. This entire process takes about 10 minutes and there is no DKMS to mess around with. This How-to applies to Kubuntu 5.10, or Breezy Badger.
So we'll begin by going to Nvidia's home page and grabbing the latest Linux driver (8178 as of this writing).
