    Nvidia GPU

    Today I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 19.04 daily, and for the first time I did not have to blacklist Nvidia, it just works. What did Cannonical do to fix this. My laptop has both an Intel HD 630 and an Nvidia GTX 1050 intergrated gpu's. Even with both Fedora was impossible to install, but Ubuntu worked when I blacklisted Nvidia. Now I don't have to do anything.

    Just check, I suspect the latest nvidia driver is already installed on your system (seems it is installed if you select to enable the installation of third party drivers and mp3 support etc.)

    If you have it already installed by keeping it up to date you are basically already on the final release, no need to re-install

    I was pleasantly surprised to see the Nvidia drivers installed from the get-go. And the latest 418 drivers, at that! Ubuntu continues to improve and impress.
