To all the guys having problems, who are applying the first howto they found on internet instead of checking their distro’s man pages: HAHAHA

You also need the kernel headers in order to build the proprietary drivers. Easy way to make sure you have everything you need is to install module-assistant and run it as sysadmin:

m-a prepare

You’ll need to run apt update after adding the contrib and non-free repositories to your sources.list when installing the proprietary drivers - otherwise your ‘apt install…’ won’t see the new repositories.
