I am on a ThinkPad W530 and have just installed Ubuntu. Which one of these drivers do I install?

Does the command sudo apt-get install nvidia-current install current drivers?

EDIT: I used sudo apt-get install nvidia-current and now there is a nvidia_304 driver activated in Additional Drivers:

If you have Optimus enabled in the BIOS, you either have to disable it or install Bumblebee

I used sudo apt-get install nvidia-current. There should be a new driver that appears in the Additional Drivers GUI. Restart your computer.

If you have Optimus enabled in the BIOS, you either have to disable it or install Bumblebee. Otherwise, you will have grey icons on the dashboard.

  • In my case the system would hang after GRUB using nVidia. Nouveau works, but nouveau is really a mess when using virtual machines. – Iman Akbari Sep 15 '16 at 8:04
