I feared that it would turn out this way :-|

To be honest: of course I could fetch the driver from nividia.com and
install it from scratch but I thought, Ubuntu would solve these garbage
details with some klicks. So it did before flawlessly on the very same
machine and it still works with the generic kernel.

In the end it means, that I cannot recommend UbuntuStudio for musicians
that would like to switch...
