How to install the NVIDIA drivers on Ubuntu 22.04 - Linux Tutorials - Learn Linux Configuration

The objective is to install the NVIDIA drivers on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish) Linux and switch from a default opensource Nouveau driver to the proprietary Nvidia driver.

To install Nvidia driver on other Linux distributions, follow our Nvidia Linux Driver guide.

Thanks for the guide - however, are the last 4 steps (disabling the nouveau driver) required regardless of the approach used to install the driver? Or are they only completed if you follow the manual install?

Just the manual installation requires disabling nouveau driver manually

thanks, appreciated!
