Ubuntu: How do I install nVidia graphics drivers from “X-Swat” ppa? [duplicate]



Question:

This question already has an answer here:

How am I supposed to install nvidia drivers from X-Swat? I try

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates -y  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install nvidia-graphics-drivers-304  

and I get

E: Unable to locate package nvidia-graphics-drivers-304  

The Launchpad page says there is nvidia-graphics-drivers-304 for trusty, why wouldn't it install?


Solution:1

You need to run

sudo apt-get install nvidia-304  

If you expand the nvidia-graphics-drivers-304 - 304.116-0ubuntu1~xedgers~trusty1 (Newer version available) link on the Launchpad page you see that the nvidia-graphics-drivers-304 is a group which contains the following packages:

nvidia-304

nvidia-304-dev

nvidia-current

nvidia-current-dev
