[Update] I'm able to install the 375 drivers fine using
sudo apt-get install nvidia-375
but the issue below still persists with 381.[/Update]
So last night I decided to update my nvidia drivers to 381 following some steps I found online. Here are the steps I followed:
sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-381
Whenever I get to "sudo apt-get install nvidia-381" command I receive "Unable to locate package nvidia-381"
I've searched everywhere and can't find a solution this. Any ideas?
Here is my output:
tyler@tyler-ubuntu:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa Fresh drivers from upstream, currently shipping Nvidia. ## Current Status Current official release: `nvidia-381` (381.22) Current long-lived branch release: `nvidia-375` (375.66) For G8x, G9x and GT2xx GPUs use `nvidia-340` (340.102) For NV4x and G7x GPUs use `nvidia-304` (304.135) Support timeframes for Unix legacy GPU releases: https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3142 ## What we're working on right now: - Normal driver updates - Help Wanted: Mesa Updates for Intel/AMD users, ping us if you want to help do this work, we're shorthanded. ## WARNINGS: This PPA is currently in testing, you should be experienced with packaging before you dive in here: Volunteers welcome! See also: https://github.com/mamarley/nvidia-graphics-drivers/ ### How you can help: ## Install PTS and benchmark your gear: sudo apt-get install phoronix-test-suite Run the benchmark: phoronix-test-suite default-benchmark openarena xonotic tesseract gputest unigine-valley and then say yes when it asks you to submit your results to openbechmarking.org. Then grab a cup of coffee, it takes a bit for the benchmarks to run. Depending on the version of Ubuntu you're using it might preferable for you to grabs PTS from upstream directly: http://www.phoronix-test-suite.com/?k=downloads ## Share your results with the community: Post a link to your results (or any other feedback to): https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers-testers Remember to rerun and resubmit the benchmarks after driver upgrades, this will allow us to gather a bunch of data on performance that we can share with everybody. If you run into old documentation referring to other PPAs, you can help us by consolidating references to this PPA. If someone wants to go ahead and start prototyping on `software-properties-gtk` on what the GUI should look like, please start hacking! ## Help us Help You!
