I have a GTX 660M and Ubuntu 18.04 64-bit.
According to the official website, the latest graphics driver for this card is version 410.66.
The graphics-drivers PPA says
Current long-lived branch release: `nvidia-410` (410.66)
I have nouveau drivers installed at the moment according to
apt-get purge 'nvidia*' does nothing.
I have done
add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers and
apt-get update and a reboot.
ubuntu-drivers devices gives this output
== /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0 == modalias : pci:v000010DEd00000FD4sv00001028sd00000551bc03sc00i00 vendor : NVIDIA Corporation model : GK107M [GeForce GTX 660M] driver : nvidia-304 - third-party free driver : nvidia-driver-390 - third-party free driver : nvidia-340 - distro non-free driver : nvidia-driver-396 - third-party free driver : nvidia-driver-410 - third-party free recommended driver : xserver-xorg-video-nouveau - distro free builtin
Note this line:
driver : nvidia-driver-410 - third-party free recommended
It looks like everything is ready to go to install driver version 410, but autocompleting
apt-get install nvidia- indicates the highest available version is
nvidia-390, and trying
apt-get install nvidia-410 directly fails.
apt not list the version 410 that the PPA and
ubuntu-drivers both say is there?
And if I can't
apt-get install nvidia-410, how can I install this version?
