    If you installed the driver (in any way) there should be a program called "nvidia-settings".
    Try executing
    Code:
    nvidia-settings
    in a terminal window.

    This will either lead to a message saying "command not found" or open a new window with information about your NVIDIA Card & Monitor settings.
    If that window opens and has some useful information (e.g. GPU 0 - ... Listing) then your driver works good enough.

    I'm running the "nv" module, not "nvidia", by the output of "lsmod|grep
    nv". Nevertheless, nvidia-settings runs and gives info.

    To be really sur that it is running I simply invoke
    Code:
    glxinfo | grep OpenGL
    this gives definite feedback about the nvidia driver and its version if it
    is in use like that
    Code:
    OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
    OpenGL renderer string: ION/PCI/SSE2
    OpenGL version string: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 275.21
    OpenGL extensions:

    Yes, I see similar output.

    Funny... all this time trusting the output from the module listing,
    thinking that I was using the nv or open module, and instead I'm using the
    closed source one. And without doing anything at all!
