Thanks for the feedback.  I tried this:
sudo aptitude install nvidia-glx-190
But got this error:
Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "nvidia-glx-190"

So I went to nvidia's web site and downloaded that driver
and installed it manually and that seemed to do the trick.

Thanks again to Travis and Harry for pointing me
in the right direction.
