Success installing nvidia Mint xfce 19.2

Post by Beardedragon »

I have read several people with problems and hope this helps out. I looked around, did some searches and found no real solutions to installing nvidia. So I trusted Mint for the solution. Opening mintinstall I found the version 340, installed it and then the nvidia x server settings. Below are my specs:
