    Especially relevant: for some dated Cards this PPA Repo may not be relevant, so in that case you may try directly Searching and Installing the Driver.

    And so before Setting it up you can directly Check which is the Minimum Driver version to Support your Card on: NVIDIA Driver support Website!

    For the latest Dev Releases:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
    For further Insight see the Official Documentation.

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

    sudo apt update
    In case of Not Found Issue then amend the Repo manually:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/oem-solution-group*.list
    And change “hirsute” in “focal” or “groovy”.
    Finally, Ctrl+x to Save & Exit from nano Editor.
    And then Refresh the Apt Repos again.
