View Full Version : [SOLVED] FIXED* Nvidia drivers not installing correctly please help.

September 6th, 2018, 03:20 AM
(im using Ubuntu 18.04).in software and updates it says i have nvidia 390 drivers but it also says i have no proprietary drivers either. it wont let me change which driver i what either, when i try to select a different one it just switches back. in system setting under about it says my graphics are NV117 (i have a GTX 750ti) now im assuming that mean nividia drivers 117 but i could be wrong. iv tried looking up this issue and found nothing, iv tried installations but im not fully understating of what is happaing over the error of unmet dependency and no way to fix then, since when i do the sudo fix command it give me more unmet dependency.

Show us the errors by posting the outputs - Between code tags - of terminal commands:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

code tag tutorial:

see what it takes to put the package manager in a happy state .

If the package manager is not happy

no one is happy

And when this issue comes up again, then what? Despite the fact that it says "open source", you are using the correct drivers.
