Please read the stickies, they solve many problems.

There is written what packages you'll need for a manual
install of the nvidia binary driver, kernel-header,
Xorg headers (-dev packages) and build-essentials (gcc, libc, etc.) ...

You can install packages with

sudo apt-get install <package name>

and search for packages with

sudo apt-cache search <keyword>

(of course without the <>)
