Bug Description

Contrary to the documentation ( https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam/MSIMegabookGX700 ), on my MSI GX700 notebook, the NVIDIA card was not automatically detected. It took me a while to find out that this is why TV using a DVB-T stick had a very instable image.
After installing the NVIDIA drivers, everything was fine.

... so what about the documentation in
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam/MSIMegabookGX700 ?

affects: ubuntu → jockey (Ubuntu)

The nvidia drivers are not a dependency of ubuntu-desktop package or of joykey, so it is normal that the NVIDIA driver is not installed automatically.

Are you using a normal install of Ubuntu or an OEM-install?

I am using the normal kubuntu distribution.
The only reason I believed the NVIDIA driver is installed automatically was
the documentation in
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam/MSIMegabookGX700
