    nvidia-settings is already the newest version.
    nvidia-settings set to manually installed.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

    Nvidia-settings option just ain't included into any application categories. Maybe is a bug or something but as I said as far it works from cli then it doesn't matter for me so much.

    ......UPDATES....
    SOLVED

    hello, i try to install nvidia drivers but it fails. i did apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` then i tried to install driver from nvidia bin. any help please? here is the nvidia install log.

    Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
    -> License accepted.
    -> Installing NVIDIA driver version 173.14.35.
    -> Performing CC sanity check with CC="cc".
    -> Performing CC version check with CC="cc".
    ERROR: The kernel header file
    '/lib/modules/3.7-trunk-686-pae/build/include/linux/version.h' does not
    exist. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files
    in '/lib/modules/3.7-trunk-686-pae/build' have not been configured.
    ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
    '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
    on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
    driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
    thanks.

    Hi All,

    I can't be more happy than I'm now! And I thanks God and you guys for this.
    I have a Dell XPS 15 L502X with a embedded nVidia GT 540M and I was struggling to get it to work. With Backtrack 5, I was done! Impossible. But now with Kali, I could make it to work thanks to you guys tips. This is what I've done:

    OS: Kali Linux 64

    1 - Used this (http://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers) steps to install nVidia driver with DKMS as I couldn't make it to work as the message "No headers found" was appearing and even installing the headers, it wasn't working. And to install the :i386 headers, it would uninstall MANY stuff so I proceeded with the DKMS part.
    2 - Skipped the part to configure nVidia with XORG as it just won't work as the primary driver is the Intel and since I didn't want GNOME to start with nVidia (which would be impossible), I've skipped the XORG part to let Intel deals with that so I wouldn't have problems starting the graphic interface. In noob terms: I haven't touch the XORG config files.
    3 - Then I used this (http://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee) steps to install the Bumblebee from the Suwako repository to make things WAAY easier, after reboot, my "optirun glxgears -info" worked like a charm and showed my nVidia card working!

    Again, thank you all. Kali Linux rocks!

    The upstream 3.7 kernel moved version.h from include/linux to include/generated/uapi/linux

    add the sym link

    Greetings

    This fix worked for me :

    apt-get update

    apt-get install nvidia-detect nvidia-libopencl1 nvidia-opencl-common nvidia-support nvidia-opencl-icd nvidia-visual-profiler nvidia-glx nvidia-installer-cleanup nvidia-kernel-common nvidia-smi nvidia-alternative nvidia-opencl-dev libglx-nvidia-alternatives nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-cuda-toolkit nvidia-vdpau-driver nvidia-xconfig glx-alternative-nvidia libgl1-nvidia-alternatives nvidia-settings libgl1-nvidia-glx xserver-xorg-video-nvidia libcublas4 libcudart4 libcufft4 libnpp4 libnvidia-compiler libcuda1 libcuinj4 libnvidia-ml1 libxvmcnvidia1 libcusparse4 libcurand4 python-pycuda-doc python-pycuda-headers python-pycuda nvidia-cuda-doc nvidia-cuda-gdb

    PS: after rebooting the machine , the screen goes into very low pixels, everything will show large ! just type : nvidia-xconfig .
    Then type : nano /etc/grub.d/00_header
    scroll down till you see : gfxmode=${GRUB_GFXMODE}
    Add this code underneath it : set gfxpayload=keep
    Ctrl+o & Ctrl+x to confirm and save.
    In terminal type : update-grub

    That's it , everything worked wonders for me this way . Hope it does for you.

    thanx for fast rep, im still having issues while trying to install cpyrit

    root@kali:~# cd cpyrit-cuda-0.4.0/
    root@kali:~/cpyrit-cuda-0.4.0# python setup.py build
    The CUDA compiler and headers required to build kernel were not found. Trying to continue anyway...
    svn: '.' is not a working copy
    running build
    running build_ext
    Skipping rebuild of Nvidia CUDA kernel ...
    Building modules...

    any solution?
