Ubuntu: Are drivers available for NVIDIA GEFORCE 740M?


Does Ubuntu 16.04.2 support NVIDIA graphics adapter 740M? Are there any drivers available?


Ubuntu 16.04.2 perfectly supports the NVIDIA graphics. There are drivers available in the Ubuntu 16.04 repositories and to install the latest stable NVIDIA drivers for the GEFORCE 740M open a terminal and execute the following command : sudo apt install nvidia-375 nvidia-prime Reboot the operating system to activate and make use of the freshly installed NVIDIA drivers.

Additional information : Every Ubuntu system comes with the open source nouveau drivers pre-installed and if you don't play demanding games or use other applications which need a higher graphics hardware performance, you don't need to install the proprietary NVIDIA drivers. The package nvidia-prime is only necessary when the notebook has NVIDIA Optimus support.
