Hello,

nvidia proprietary drivers are included in Ubuntu. You can install them either from a terminal or "Additional Drivers" software.

Please open a terminal and execute the following commands one by one (copy-paste from here to terminal)

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings
    sudo nvidia-xconfig

Commands prefixed with sudo , will ask for your password, write it carefully because nothing will appear (like no write at all).

After the installation completes, reboot your PC for changes to take effect.

Regards

You should check that the procedure above is installing the version 304 of the driver. The more recent version 319 which comes with some PPAs (like steam) does not support the 6200 any more.
