Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for de


As stated in the subject I am trying to install my NVIDIA card on ubuntu 12.04 through the additional drivers GUI and I keep getting the error:

Sorry, installation of this driver failed.

Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log

Can someone help me to install it correctly? Sort of new to Linux.

That's just the first few things in my log its pretty big so I don't know if the top stuff is the newer stuff or what you need.
