Ubuntu: Installing Nvidia graphics driver ubuntu



Question:

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.


Solution:1

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*
