Do you install that? build-essential, pkg-config, xserver-xorg-dev

edit the file "/etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common" and append this DISABLED_MODULES=”nv”
If you already install nvidia drivers do that:
sudo apt-get –purge remove nvidia-glx nvidia-settings
sudo rm /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx

and do the steps for install the file *.run from the nvidia page

Any way, there's a method much easy, search at google for "envy" it's an script that install the last driver
