As always, this has been discussed to death but everything I can find is from years back and I don't know what's still relevant. Lot of people suggest trial and error, but I'm so new with the OS that I couldn't easily recover from a mistake.
Please bear with me, this is my first Ubuntu build after running windows for over 20 years.
I'm running the latest desktop version of Ubuntu.
Tried to update to the newest drivers from Nvidia's website, but the computer tried to open them as a massive text file.
So I found instructions online to install via a PPA. Not that I know what that stands for. Can't find my instructions, but it was something like this
Now my system is showing my computer running driver version 384.90.
I'm not up on my theory yet, just need to know what to type.
If it works, we'll have a 980-ti running on my office desktop (ie) a dedicated crunching machine.
