I need to install the nvidia drivers for Ubuntu SERVER 18.04.2, to run computations from a headless server on a nvidia RTX card.
I am asking because I have not yet found any clear guide to do that for the server 18.04.2 version of Ubuntu.

Run the following commands in your terminal to install the latest NVIDIA Drivers:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt update sudo apt-get install ubuntu-drivers-common sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
If you get any unmet dependencies problems, manually install those unmet dependencies. For example, if you get:
nvidia-driver-418 : Depends: xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-418 (418.56-0ubuntu0~gpu18.04.1) but it is not going to be installed
sudo apt install xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-418 nvidia-driver-418
