How to Install 304.48

With the thousands of commands available for the command line user, how can you remember them all? The answer is, you don’t. The real power of the computer is its ability to do the work for you. To get it to do that, we use the power of the shell to automate things. First we test, second we write and then we provide.

Our nVIDIA Installer script is a collections of commands that are stored in a file. The shell can read this file and act on the commands as if they were typed at the keyboard. This is the very early beta of this script, and soon enough there will be a GUI version with lot’s of features.

Please notice that our script works only with Ubuntu. No other Linux distributions are supported. In order to install this driver, please use our 1-click installer script and select the “beta” update.

[button color=”orange” link=”https://utappia.org/howto/nvidia-drivers-installer-script/”%5DDownload 304.48 beta[/button]

After the reboot, open Dash and type “nvidia“. Using this tool you can configure all these nvidia settings 🙂

btw you can use our script to unistall the drivers (in case you have problems).

  1. This gave me the daunted wrong-resolution box when I used it on the 64-bit installation. Does it have a problem with that, or something special go wrong for me? Trying to use it from command line after issues and tells me my drivers are messed up, attempts to repair ,same issue on reboot!
