Could not launch 'NVIDIA X Server Settings' [Solved]

While opening Nvidia X Server Settings you may get the following error:
Could not launch 'NVIDIA X Server Settings'
Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/nvidia-settings" (No such file or directory)
More precisely I got this error after upgrading to Lucid from Karmic. This just means that necessary package is missing.

You can easily solve this by installing nvidia-settings package.

Open Ubuntu Software Center from main menu and search for nvidia-settings and install it.

Now you can open Nvidia X Server Settings from administration menu.
