Install the NVIDIA driver 364 on Linux Mint

NVIDIA has introduced the NVIDIA proprietary driver 364 for the operating systems GNU/Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris, with support for Wayland, Mir, KMS and Vulkan. Basically the installation of the proprietary drivers needed first and foremost for gamers, i.e. gamers.

Note. Before downloading and installing new driver, make sure that your system has a supported NVIDIA GPU. You can also use automatic scanning, contacting the Drivers section on the website of NVIDIA to find the latest drivers for your NVIDIA GPU.
How to identify and install the correct driver for your Nvidia video card in Linux Mint can be viewed on page "How to detect and install the correct version of the Nvidia driver on Linux Mint". Otherwise, after you install the NVIDIA driver 364 you risk not to run the system.

 

Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

At the time of this writing, this driver is in BETA.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-364 nvidia-settings

After the installation, restart the computer to activate this driver.

After a new logon check the installed graphics driver utility NVIDIA X Server Settings, search in the menu or in the terminal command:

glxinfo | grep OpenGL

Good Luck!!!
