Post by lisabiziou » Mon Nov 06, 2017 9:41 am

im not good with linux. so please be patient. I tried installing my Ge force ( nvida) graphical card. I followed the suggestion here viewforum.php?f=59 but it didnt work. When i typed in sudu /etc/init.d/mdm stop nothing happened.

Could someone explain how i install on linux mint 18.2 sonya. Also im not very good with the terminal and totally not with the display manager.

does this help CPU~Quad core Intel Core i7-2600 (-HT-MCP-) speed/max~1598/3800 MHz Kernel~4.10.0-38-generic x86_64 Up~22 min Mem~1334.6/7962.7MB HDD~1000.2GB(2.8% used) Procs~236 Client~Shell inxi~2.2.35

Basically you need to first disable Secure Boot in the computer bios setup, then from LM Driver Manager utility install recommended Nvidia driver. Reboot to complete.
