Installing video card driver on Ubuntu

I decided to use the proprietary driver for my video card. After googling a little for a howto, I tumbled upon the site of Alberto Milone. Alberto’s application called Envy automates the installation of both ATI and Nvidia’s proprietary driver on Ubuntu. It detects the model of the video card, downloads the right version driver, handles dependancies, installs the driver, sets up xorg configuration. Very nice.
