In previous versions of Ubuntu I was able to install the proprietary nvidia driver for the GeForce 210 graphics card under Additional Drivers in Software & Update but now there are "No additional drivers available".
I tried typing
apt install nvidia-driver- and hit
tab. If I'm not mistaken, I need
nvidia-driver-340 but there is nothing below
Lastly, I downloaded the official driver from nvidia's web page and tried installing it directly but the installation was unsuccessful. The log says:
fatal error: asm/kmap_types.h: No such file or directory
I reinstalled my Ubuntu 20.04 system because it stopped booting some weeks ago. The boot process started normally (black screen with Ubuntu written in white and a spinning "circle" above it) but then the screen went completely blank and there was occasionally a blinking underscore at the top left corner of the screen. At this point, no matter which key I hit, nothing happened. I don't know if the failure of my old system has anything to do with my current problem.
Now, I do not really care about which driver I'm using as long as it supports my screen's native resolution which is 2560x1080.
nouveau only gives me 1920x1080.
