Ubuntu Mint Install Nividia GTX 480 Drivers

First I went to the Nividia website:

And found the right driver for my system. Downloaded the ./ file.
Change the permissions so I could execute:

chmod 777 ./
Then I executed it:

But it gives me a warning and says I have to kill my xserver. I Do this (I am using gnome):
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop

After I kill it I run the same command I tried above and follow the directions and it worked fine.
