I doubt that this is of any importance right now. You can update your drivers yourself (if the ones in the official Ubuntu repositories aren't as up-to-date as you want them to be, grab the .sh from the official Nvidia site or add a PPA). Besides, Steam shouldn't mess around with distro-internals (and the different ways distros handle driver updates is distro-internal).

Yes I know I can update the drivers myself and I've done it quite a bunch of times already. I am only reporting a broken feature as a beta tester. That is all.

Before I updated to the latest drivers I would get a dialog telling me that I wasn't using the latest version and should upgrade. So there is some code in there checking the driver version, it just doesn't seem to be linked to the menu command.

I personally think that driver updates should be removed from Steam for Linux entirely, considering how they're already updated by the OS. Windows does not update drivers with the OS, which is why it makes sense there.

Same issue here. Nvidia 9800, using the xorg-edgers-ppa.

Are all of you having the same issue using Ubuntu 12.10? (I can see the OP is) From another issue I had I found out Steam is using jockey's backend (12.04 additional drivers management app) to find out which drivers can be installed. I also know that during 12.10 some changes were made to that management, at least in the front-end, but maybe in the back-end too, breaking Steam's ability to check for drivers instalable in 12.10. Just trying to help pin-pointing the issue.
Brinehaart 2012年12月15日上午12:03 
Aha, so this feature works on the LTS but not on the 12.10 since the backend package that steam uses isn't available. Did I get that correctly?

I don't know. I know the frontend changed for sure in 12.10 but no idea about the backend. Thats why I asking trying to pin-point the issue.

I was coming out of posting an update on another issue I was having in 12.04 that resulted to be a bug in that backend. Thats how I found out Steam is using that backend.

As already mentioned: The options should be removed. There is _no_ reason under linux to check the gfx drivers from the client, and update it there. The drivers should always handled by the distribution package manager.
