[xubuntu-users] Repository driver for nvidia laptop card NVS3100M?

Some time ago, I installed 16.04.1 (Unity) on a T410s with the same 
graphics card. After the installation of the proprietary drivers, I 
could even switch between the Intel and nVidia graphics, whereby 
logout/login was required, but no reboot.

Good luck!
