View Full Version : [SOLVED] Installed Nvidia latest driver

It was very painful for me, but I managed to update the Nvidia driver. I share this solution in case any other of you use two window or desktop managers.

1. Download the latest Nvidia driver from their site.
2. Update your Linux Kernel and its headers
3. Reboot
4. Log in in tty mode (control+alt f1)
5. Stop X server with
sudo service kdm stop
6. Navigate where you downloaded your driver and run it
7. Let it update the Xorg configuration file for you.

I have Xubuntu and I also downloaded Kubuntu, so the other threads which talk about this didn't help me in full. I had to mix "from here and from there" to get here.

I have a question, though. How do I know I am using the correct driver?
