9500GT driver problems Ubuntu


When ever I try and use that chmod 755 command for the driver to allow it to be an executable I keep getting an error that no such file or directory exists, even though I know for a fact that I am in the correct directory and that the file is there. It is sitting on my desktop and that is the directory it says I am under.

I am using Ubuntu Kernel version 2.6.27-7 generic

Take it you are running this from a shell? confirm it with pwd to confirm the correct directory and ls to confirm the existance of the file? you may find that their is a different file intended for installing anyway, check the read me file as things like drivers may use ./configure or some method like that with an already executable file.

I got the chmod 755 command to work but when I double click on the file and choose the run in terminal option it works fine but then it says have to run as root. I also tried both ls and the pwd commands and they both spit me back the file name in green. So I used the su command so I could run as a root user and it says that the file doesn't exist just like when I was using shell.

If it's setup properly try using sudo?

As I said, this doesn't sound like the intended way to install the driver anyway, what does it say in the readme?
