Install Nvidia GeForce 331.67 Driver in Ubuntu 14.04, 13.10

I will be showing us how to install the current version of Nvidia GeForce 331.67 driver in Ubuntu using the PPA which is currently up to date. I have successfully installed this on Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) and 14.04 (Trusty Tahr)

nvidia 331-01

Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug that could lead to crashes when running Left 4 Dead 2 with threaded optimizations enabled.
  • Updated the makefile for the NVIDIA kernel module to work around a bug in older versions of GNU Make that prevented the NVIDIA kernel module from building correctly. This bug was fixed in version 3.81 of GNU Make.
  • Fixed a bug that causes some X clients to be disconnected from the X server when the screen is resized while RandR 1.4 display offloading is in use.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause display corruption when resuming from suspend on systems using RandR 1.4 display offloading with recent Linux kernels.
  • Added support for Tridelity SL stereo mode.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause nvidia-settings to crash or display incorrect information after switching virtual terminals while a color correction confirmation countdown was active.
  • Added a missing 32-bit compatibility library for libnvidia-fbc.so to the x86_64 Linux installer package
