I'm trying to install Nvidia drivers for a Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU on a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04. However, I have been unsuccessful. Thus far, I have followed this guide (steps 1 - 5) to install the drivers on a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 installation. However, it shows no driver for the GPU:
lshw -c video WARNING: you should run this program as super-user. *-display UNCLAIMED description: VGA compatible controller product: NVIDIA Corporation vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 version: a1 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: vga_controller cap_list configuration: latency=0 //SHOULD SAY driver=... here resources: memory:f6000000-f6ffffff memory:e0000000-efffffff memory:f0000
In the Additional Drivers menu, it appears as though Nvidia-387 is installed.
I've tried installing Nvidia-375, and 384 as well with the same results.
$ lsmod | fgrep nvidia //no output $ lsmod | fgrep nouveau //no output $
Any suggestions on how I might get drivers successfully installed would be much appreciated.
