Bug Description

After installing Kubuntu 12.10 beta1 (Quantal Quetzal), i tried the nvidia-current drivers using the jockey-kde package, and after installing and rebooting, i recheck if all is ok and appears in the package "This driver is activated but not currently in use". I retried with the other options (nvidia-currently-updates, nvidia-173 and nvidia-173-updates) and all the same. I tried some "solutions" I founded reading on other forums (blacklist nouveau, testing others repositories, etc) but still the same. So I reinstall Kubuntu 12.10 beta 1 and with no extra modifies just the nvidia-current driver installed i come here to report this bug (I hope) and see how can be solved.

I can't see anything to do with third-party drivers in software-properties in Kubuntu 13.04.
