I have jre-8u191-linux-x64.tar.gz a 64 bit java
install - BUT - how to use it?
this is needed for Nvidia site to select right driver for my GP 107 card.
It is a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 aka PH-GTA1050 series card
with 2 gigs of video memory. (NVIDIA GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050])
or is there another way to solve this?
Synaptic, nor Driver manager does not appear to help.
I'm a linux newby.
thank you for your help in advance guys and gals.
