    NVIDIA graphics driver gone

    Hi,

    since today, all-of-a-sudden the driver for my NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 graphics card is missing. In 'About this computer' under 'Graphics' there is 'llvmpipe (LLVM 10.0.0, 128 bits)' instead of the NVIDIA card. What can I do to install the proper driver anew?

    TIA,

    Claus

    Post the output of the following command. Check additional drivers for changes.
    Code:
     lspci -v

    Re: NVIDIA graphics driver gone

    Your card is identified and appears to be using the nouveau driver. Is there a proprietary driver available in additional drivers? My GT730 uses the 390 driver.

    Yes, I could find the 390 driver, but when I attempted to install it I was notified that there is a bunch of unmet dependencies. How shall I proceed?

    The 390 branch is the Legacy branch for no-longer-supported cards. Since you haven't said which release you're using, I'll assume you're on 20.04, are using the HWE stack, and have recently upgraded to the 5.8 branch kernel that the Legacy Nvidia driver doesn't work with.

    The 710 (and the 730 for that matter, although I assume that's a typo) is supported by current drivers. The 455 and 460 branches are the current ones. It's generally best to purge all the Nvidia stuff before moving to a different branch.

    I understand, but how do I clean up the installed Nvidia packages? I took a look using Synaptic, and I have a number of packages for the Nvidia 440 driver installed. Do I have to uninstall all of them manually using Synaptic, or can it be done via shell? I already (unsuccessfully) tried 'sudo apt install nvidia-driver-455', but there are a number of unmet dependencies. So I guess I have to first get rid of the 440 stuff before installing the 455 driver. I also wonder how this problem came about in the first place. Until this morning everything worked just fine. (Ok, I re-read your post. It must have been due to an update.)

    No not a typo , the 730 is a similar card depending on vendor.

    Ah, I hadn't spotted that those were your words given by the OP without quote tags.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge nvidia* libnvidia*
    should do it.

    I already (unsuccessfully) tried 'sudo apt install nvidia-driver-455', but there are a number of unmet dependencies.
    Details of what those unmet dependencies are would be helpful; the 440 branch isn't the Legacy branch, but the problem might still have been triggered by the 5.8 update, or it might be something else.
