Ubuntu 12.10, Quantal Quetzal

Nvidia proprietary driver
I have gotten myself a nice Nvidia graphic card. However, it's seems a dependency on the Linux header isn't sat correctly, so you have to manually install them:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Then you can install the proprietary driver:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

Oracle java
IceTea is fine. However, it's get easy outdated for my netbank. This is how you install Oracle Sun Java:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 5CB26B26
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install update-sun-jre

Install Compiz Settings Manager
A usefull configuration tool is the Compiz Settings Manager:
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
