      Then the driver is not propper installed.
      Btw, linux writes nice logfiles, so you should have a look into them.

        ive opened a request to add it to the repos:
        https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...1/+bug/1287753

        i have no clue on how to manualy install it or even where to find the logfiles.
        everytime i try to install a driver manualy and i get "distribution-provided pre-install script failed" i never get it to work :P
        when that dosent show up it usualy works, so im probably missing something the script would do for me.

        What i do:
        go into tty2 and login
        sudo stop lightdm
        run the ".run" file
        sudo nvidia-xconfig
        sudo restart

            Will it compile (without patching) and work on kernels 3.13 ?
            for a number of releases of nvidia driver, they have not actually compiled against vanilla kernel

              334.21 supports kernel 3.13, no patching needed.

                it does, but theres a annoying bug right now with the UI flashing when moving the mouse.
                it seems to be something realted to The GL_EXT_x11_sync_object extension.
                i have reported it and hopefully they will fix it.

                Meanwhile i wouldnt recommend installing it unless you dont mind the UI flashing or if you only use it for fullscreen gamming since it bypass compiz.
