Thanks yoni, this is just me showing my cli ignorance but I cannot run the installer,
bash: ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-280.13.run: Permission denied
How do I change the perm's via cli? I know the GUI way but thats not a big help now!!
I know it's something to do with chmod but have no further knowledge than that.
OK, so I google on how, used
chmod a=x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-280.13.run
and permissions were right, then when I tried to run it again I got a message back I had the wrong arch!! I'm just going through the whole bit of adding the new x86-64 version to my stricken lappy with a usb stick and a xubuntu livecd!!
