    I was trying to install the 440 driver. I have since uninstalled it.

    Okay, don't install the Nvidia driver from the Nvidia .run file. Lesson learned. If I look at the output of 'apt list' the lastest Nvidia driver seems to be 384. I will look into PPAs and the graphic driver PPA.

    UserJB; Hello -

    Just a word of warning:
    Make sure that the driver selected is compatible with the graphic's card:
    http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
    is my goto to see what the latest -supported - driver is.
    compare to:
    Code:
    sudo ubuntu-drivers devices
    Then to have the system install the version it thinks best - from what it has to choose from:
    Code:
    sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
    easy peasy
    no fuss, no muss
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PopularPages

    Happy ubuntu'n !
