A good suggestion, thank you, but no difference unfortunately.
I stopped the display manager (lightdm) from a virtual terminal

still no working driver according to nvidia-settings. After running
nvidia-config I'm limited to 640x480, which doesn't help.

That's what I would have expected. Possibly the 'studio' parts are
causing the problem then (in that I probably don't have the right
linux-headers or something similar).

I tried Ubuntu 13.04 between attempts with the studio version. It would
only boot to a rescue 'low graphics' mode, which turned out to be just
a login prompt, but I was able to update and then install nvidia-current
OK on that and it worked fine on the next reboot.

Just downloaded a daily build of Xubuntu 13.04. I'll try starting
from there. All of these Raring-Ringtail installs are a bit awkward
for me, as there's a bug which means I have to disconnect all HDDs
bar the one on which I'm going to install. :|
