    Nice idea, but that PPA doesn’t include 295.59 yet. It only goes up to 295.53.

    But there’s only 295.53 available in that ppa, not 295.59

    Oh! there’s people reading the comments!!!
    please, can you update the home page? there’s an entry about Ubuntu 10.10 guide, and that version is NOT supported anymore by canonical.

    You might as well use the swat ppa at this point. This PPA will not ppa-purge when I installed it. If I can’t uninstall something – I won’t recommended it to anyone. Swat goes up to 302.xx btw and that is really the better choice.

    In the 302.xx series the overscan compensation control has been removed, so if you have overscan issues you’d better stay with 295.xx series. They nvidia stated that this is a “long-lived” branch.
