In this Tutorial I will tell you how to install the Latest stable version of NVIDIA Graphics driver 367.35 On Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 16.04 LTS and LinuxMint 17 / 16 / 15 

Nvidia Linux Display Driver is a proprietary, yet freely distributed OpenGL video driver that aims to offer support for Nvidia graphics cards on any Linux kernel-based operating system. 

This version has been designed to be installed only computers supporting the 64-bit architecture. 

This Version 367.35 released on 15th July 2016 with a fix of bugs.

Changelog

  • Fixed a regression that could cause console corruption when resuming from suspend.
  • Improved buffer write performance of the nvidia-drm DRM KMS driver by using write-combined DRM Dumb Buffers where available.
  • Fixed a bug that caused X to crash when applying changes to the RandR CscMatrix property while VT-switched away from X.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a crash when exiting nvidia-settings on displays with 8 or 15 bit color depths.
  • Added support for VDPAU Feature Set H to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver. GPUs with VDPAU Feature Set H are capable of hardware-accelerated decoding of 8192x8192 (8k) H.265/HEVC video streams.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the X server to sometimes skip displaying Vulkan frames when the Composite extension is enabled.
  • Added support for querying clock values on Pascal GPUs.
  • Removed the Base Mosaic configuration option from nvidia-settings on systems where the feature is not actually supported.
  • Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-smi to report an inaccurate version number.
  • Fixed a bug that could lead to a system crash if there was a peer-to-peer mapping still active during CUDA context teardown.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented nvidia-bug-report.sh from finding relevant messages in kernel log files.
