Ubuntu: Installing Nvidia graphics driver ubuntu


I separately downloaded the *.run file Nvidia driver and used the grub nouveau.modeset=0 for installing Nvidia graphics driver in Ubuntu which finally led to blinking and non usable tty. If I don't install the Nvidia driver, I will not be able to use cuda for tensorflow. Please help for a step by step guide to install Nvidia driver without any issue.


You don't have to download the .run file any more. The Nvidia drivers are available in Ubuntu default repositories.

To install it, Execute the following commands.

sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install nvidia-361  

NOTE : you might want to un-install all the previously installed nvidia drivers before installing these. To do that ,

sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*
