Step by Step install of Latest Nvidia Driver Article Request
M. would you write a step-by-step article of the details for installing the latest Nvidia proprietary driver in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS? I went out and bought a GTX 750 based on your review of that card and found that the driver in the Ubuntu repository does not support it. The Nvidia site to download the latest driver cautions that some distributions have their own versions of the driver and suggest using the distribution supplied driver. I downloaded the latest driver anyway but am not sure how to safely proceed. Thanks.
Installing a GTX 780 Ti allowed me to get the Nvidia binary into the system. I then removerd the GTX 780 Ti and installed the GTX 750.
Previously the system would only give a black screen when the GTX 750 was installed before the Nvidia binary was installed.
