I tried to install nvidia drivers for my GPU ( GTX 1080 ) with this command:
I don't know what Linux distro you're using but I have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 card and have it running fine in my Linux Mint 19.1 64bit cinnamon desktop pc. It was easy enough to do and I don't see why it won't work for your gtx1080 card. If you are running Linux 64bit you need version:436.30 driver for your card. https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx
I didn't use all that command line stuff you used, the simple steps I used to get mine running were as follows -
I first found which driver was needed for my card on the Nvidia website. For my gtx1050 I needed version #430.14 and when I had that driver information, I did this -
1. I added the graphics driver repository to my system with the following command into a command Terminal (without the quotes)
“sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa”
2. Then I updated the system with -
“sudo apt update” (again without quotes)
3. I exited terminal when done and then opened my Linux Mint's “Driver Manager” from the start menu, and selected the Nvidia driver number #430 that I needed from the list. It took some time for the change to complete and I restart O/S when prompted.
This procedure installs a bunch of Nvidia Linux drivers from #390 upwards. I use #430 for my gtx 1050 graphics card and when I had changed to that number my card worked fine.
Hope this helps.
