Up to date Nvidia Drivers[Solved]

Post by adnzl » Sun Mar 31, 2019 5:36 pm

Hi, I'm wondering the best way to getting up to date Nvidia drivers? Info for doing this with Mint seems patchy at best, can I just use the PPA's suggested for Ubuntu instead?

*Edit* Ended up following these instructions and so far so good

It's good to see that you got it sorted. Now you can edit the title of your post up there and add [SOLVED] to it.

Hmmm tried to do this, but got:
ets@Shinobi-L ~ $ sudo apt install nvidia-driver-418
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
