According to zander's post:

they only added support for the GeForce 9400 in 180.51

How do I get the newer version?
Either you get it from a ppa (not official repository), or you do a manual installation. I have a rather good manual for that, but it is in german.

I recommend getting it from a ppa.
Probably there are users around here knowing one (I don't, as I don't use Ubuntu), after a quick search I found

this one you could use to get 180.60.

Sorry for not checking earlier whether your GPU is supported. I thought it was, but I don't know the whole list by heart.
