NVIDIA Graphics

We wished we could juts download and install the driver file like AMD Graphics but the installation process of the NVIDIA proprietary graphics driver is a little bit tricky. According to the readme, the installation process is supposed to be something like that

Download Nvidia Graphic Drivers

 


 

open the Terminal [CTRL]-[ALT]-[T] and paste the follow line then hit enter
cd /home/username/Downloads
sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-XXX.XX.run

Unfortunately as we said, its not that easy, you’ll come across the following error-

nvidia x error
Please exit any X server app before proceeding with the installation

 


 

Well don’t worry, we’ve compiled a super easy tutorial for you

RecommendRename the downloaded file to nvidia.run (or something short and easy to remember) and copy it to the home (/home/username/) directory Also keep a pen or pencil near to note the following steps down!

1. Press [Ctrl]-[Alt]-[f1] to enter virtual terminal. Enter your login and password. (Dont panic, you can always return to graphical desktop using [Ctrl]-[Alt]-[f7])

2. Enter the following

sudo sudo service lightdm stop
sudo sh nvidia.run

3. Follow the steps on the screen.
