    You can can instlal the nVidia driver from Software settings or command line.
    If you already installed a incorrect driver, you must purge old before installing new or you get conflicts.
    And do not install a drive directly from nVidia, as it effectively needs reinstall with every kernel update.

    I was trying to execute the last command from your above post #2017:
    after choosing between either :
    1) ubuntu driver auto-install "recommended by you "
    or 2) installing a NVIDIA driver from their list "why not to try ?"
    Both commands rejected by the system for some reason...
    user access control rights ?
    or "not found" syntax error ?
    Would you please help me, thank you

    There is a syntax error in your command.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove-purge nvidia-* .....' l'opération apt-get remove-purge n'est pas valable (french for not valid)
    
    sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*  # copy and paste this line in your terminal

    Re: My Acer A517-52 dual boot W11 unable to connect to internet after 2 years

    Is Internet working?

    Run this to see what is installed
    dkms status

    I have not used nVidia for years, not a gamer.
    But I can still run command:
    Code:
    fred@Z170-jammy:~$ sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*
    [sudo] password for fred: 
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Reading state information... Done
    Note, selecting 'nvidia-firmware-535-535.154.05' for glob 'nvidia-*'
    Note, selecting 'nvidia-cuda-toolkit-doc' for glob 'nvidia-*'
    And a screen full of other drivers it could not uninstall.

    Yes Internet connection is working (on Linux only with Ethernet cable).
    The above command result was a list full of nvidia "XXX by version number.... "not installed and therefore that could'nt be cancelled". That's OK.
    I ran this command a few days ago !!!
    About dkms status could provide me an example, not working now here. (I saw a long synopsis in Linux manuel, such as argument, option etc..).
    From UEFI firmware update i'll check on ACER site.

    Hey OldFred
    A very simple straightforward command worked
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop...
    There was my favorite GNOME background, i could see
    "la petite sirène" a underwater diving spot in the Martinique island.
    Thank you once again for your help
