I was installing different versions of Xubuntu testing some stuff and I kept forgetting how to quickly add the Nvidia driver and ended up searching for it again and again. Since I can remember my own blog URL I decided to create this post.
To add the PPA and install the latest driver:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall $ sudo reboot
If you want a different driver you can purge the current one and choose another one to install:
$ sudo apt-get purge nvidia* $ ubuntu-drivers devices
Now choose the version to install, 361 in the example, and reboot:
$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-361 $ sudo reboot
