Can you please tell me how can I find video drivers for Nvidia Geforce 320M graphics card for Ubuntu 9.10?

Hrm. I wonder how many minutes my honest response to this would last before a moderator deleted it... –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Apr 15 '10 at 5:08
    
And I suppose you want drivers for your Creative soundcard, too. –  ta.speot.is Apr 15 '10 at 8:33
    
How can I find that? –  michael Apr 16 '10 at 20:36
    
@Ignacio: At least the binary blob for Nvidia is in the package repos...No one packages Creative soundcard drivers, unless they've finally opened (I heard rumors to that effect ages ago). –  Broam Jul 12 '10 at 13:22

First thing: you're already using a driver, it's called nv. It's a pile of obfuscated unmaintainable code, so upgrade to 10.04 and use the nouveau driver, which is a lot better.

If you want 3D acceleration, you're stuck using the binary-only nvidia driver. You can install this with

System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers

It may also be called "Restricted Drivers": the driver is restricted by copyright and it is not Free Software.
