Ubuntu: Are drivers available for NVIDIA GEFORCE 740M?



Question:

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


Solution:1

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.
