  • Linux Mint
  • Lubuntu
  • Kubuntu
  • Xubuntu
  • Zorin OS
  • Elementary OS
  • Linux Lite
  • Bodhi Linux
  • Kde Neon
  • Pop_OS!
  • Voyager
  • Trisquel
  • LXLE
  • feren OS
  • Peppermint
  • Q4OS
  • Linux Ultimate Edition

Especially relevant, as you may know the NVIDIA Drivers in the Ubuntu Repository are continuously evolving so this setup may sometimes result unnecessary.

    Especially relevant: currently this PPA Repo in many cases may not be relevant, so first try directly Searching and Installing the Driver.

    Then to Add Nvidia PPA Repository

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oem-solutions-group/nvidia-driver-staging

    Authenticate with the User Admin Pass.
    If Got “User is Not in Sudoers file” then see: How to Enable sudo
    And when needed Refresh the Apr Repos with:

    sudo apt update
    Finally, for Non LTS Ubuntu releases when Not Found then amend it manually with:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/graphics-drivers*.list
    And change to the nearer LTS version, so in case of “eoan” amending in “focal”!
    Ctrl+x to Save & Exit from nano Editor ;)
    And then update the Mint Repos again.
