Install NVIDIA with PPA

This should be a better option since it should not cause any problem when upgrading the kernel.

If the xorg.conf is not configured maybe this need to be run "sudo nvidia-xconfig".

0) Remove manually installed driver
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo /usr/bin/nvidia-uninstall

1) Add source
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
deb jaunty main

3) Add key
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver CEC06767

4) Install 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic nvidia-glx-185
