nVidia Geforce 7600 driver problem

Asked by Sbn on 2007-06-07

Hello. I have a nVidia 7600 card that I'm trying to install on Ubuntu 7.04. Won't go. Did what the guide said and typed in the"sudo apt-get install nvidia-gxl" and the reply was that the package couldn't be found. This is my first attempt with Linux, I have no idea what to do. Help, anybody? And please do not assume that I understand technical linux-language, I need to know what to do step by step... Kind regards Sbn

You made a typo (switch the 'l' and the 'x')

the correct command is :
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx

Now I did that an this happened:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package nvidia-glx is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package nvidia-glx has no installation candidate

You need to enable the restricted repository.

Navigate to "System" > "Administration" > "Software sources"
and enable the restricted repository.
