NVIDIA 304.37 released
Yesterday released the first certified series Nvidia 304.37, the new Long Lived release comes with many new features, improvements and bug fixes. If you have previously used beta 304.xx drivers then these new features won’t be news for you.
The new driver supports GeForce GTX 680M, Quadro K1000M, Quadro K2000 and Tesla K10 GPUs. Added a new option, “–disable-nouveau” to nvidia-installer that changes the action that is chosen by default when Nouveauis detected by nvidia-installer. If the “–disable-nouveau” option is set, then the default will be to attempt to disable Nouveau when it is detected; otherwise, no attempt will be made unless requested. Also fixed a bug that could cause G8x, G9x, and GT2xx GPUs to display a black screen or corruption after waking up from suspend. Please notice that they updated the X configuration option “UseDisplayDevice” to honor the value “none” on any GPU, while they removed controls for XVideo attributes from the “X Server XVideo Settings” page of the nvidia-settings control panel. So, XVideo attributes can be configured in XVideo player applications, or through utilities such as xvattr. Speaking of X server, they also removed support for the following X configuration options: SecondMonitorHorizSync and SecondMonitorVertRefresh. Performance wise they ‘ve fixed many many bugs, such as fixed a bug that would cause corruption and performance issues in certain OpenGL applications. Last but certainly not least, the VDPAU and KDE 4.8 problem is still there. This driver reduces screen flicker in certain cases when using GNOME. For more info about this release check the release note in this link.
Ubuntu/Mint bleeding edge users can use xorg-edgers PPA (unstable branch) or should have to wait until the new version become available at the ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates (stable branch) — currently 302.17
Bleeding-edge (latest and maybe unstable)
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install packagename
Latest but stable enough
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
Other distros should use the *.run file. Follow the instructions bellow:
cd the directory where you downloaded the file, in my case :
Now open terminal and run the following command:
sudo sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.37.run
Then follow the installation instructions. Activate the new driver and Reboot your system.
