If you need better graphics and better performance, you might want to install Proprietary Additional Drivers in Ubuntu. They are not installed by default because they are not open source. Earlier, we used to install them through “Additional Drivers”. But in the newly released Ubuntu 12.10, the program is missing! Then how to install these drivers?
Easy… The Additional Drivers program (jockey-common) is removed and its functionality has been integrated into “Software Sources”. Now if you open Software Sources (Search in the dash for “Software Sources”) you’ll see a new tab called “Additional Drivers” at the end.
Problem solved? But be careful, there are some issues with these drivers and the new Ubuntu. I faced problems while trying to install both ATI and Nvidia drivers. Finally fixed the Nvidia issue and I’ll write about it soon. But the ATI issue is still there. I’ll let you know as soon as I find a fix. Until then, use the default drivers.
