I'm going through the docs to try to recreate what some users are 
seeing, and with a Mythbuntu system which is kept fairly up-to-date, 
executing the commands on the page is giving this:

root at rkulagow-zotac:~# sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 
nvidia-185-libvdpau nvidia-185-kernel-source 
                           Reading package lists... Done

nvidia-glx-185 is already the newest version.
nvidia-glx-185 set to manually installed.
nvidia-185-libvdpau is already the newest version.
nvidia-185-libvdpau set to manually installed.
nvidia-185-kernel-source is already the newest version.
nvidia-185-kernel-source set to manually installed.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer

Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 29 not upgraded.

And the "already the newest version" issue is something that at least 
one other user has already brought up.  Properties shows that the 
nvidia-185 files are 185.18.36-0ubuntu9 and they're being provided by 

Assuming that I follow with the apt-get install libvdpau1 step that you 
have next, isn't that the cause of some of the issues?  That Ubuntu has 
released updates that supersede the packaged nvidia-185 that you 
provided, but which will still cause the libvdpau1 conflict that 
prevents users from jumping from 185 to 190 or 195?
