That's not the way I'd do it but I don't think I've even tried installing the NVIDIA driver with Debian. It should be just a case of running the NVIDIA driver script from anywhere.
Also scripts don't come executable.
That's what I do. I do install build-essentials, make sure headers are installed etc etc, but I generally just run the sh the installer from my downloads or where ever I saved it to. Has always worked a charm for me.
