Switching Proprietary Drivers

 How do I switch to a recommended proprietary driver on Ubuntu 12.04?

 To change to the recommended proprietary driver used by Ubuntu, do the following:

  1. Open Additional Drivers either through Systems Settings or by clicking the Unity dash icon and entering "additional drivers".
  2. From the list of available drivers, select the proprietary driver requested by Steam. Your current driver is indicated by a green symbol. If the recommended driver is not listed, you will need to update your package cache by clicking the Update button.
  3. Click the Activate button.
  4. Click the Close button.

The new driver is then installed and activated. Restart your machine (click the gear icon in the upper-right corner and select Shut Down) to start using the new driver.
