I was using nouveau drivers before I found out that it's not up to par with nvidia's proprietary drivers
I decided to install the nvidia-driver-418 (proprietary) then after I rebooted, ubuntu launched fsck, it looked like everything is going [ OK ] but then it got stuck on the last line saying "fsck-cancel-message: Ctrl-C..."
At that point I waited for about 10 mins, nothing changed, i looked at the HDD-LED indicator but it shows no activity.
I fixed it by restarting my PC and uninstalling nvidia-driver-418 via GRUB.
Everything seems fine now.
But I still want to use proprietary drivers, is there any workaround for this?
