In this Tutorial I will tell you how to install the Latest stable version of NVIDIA Graphics driver 367.44 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 64/32 -bit architecture. 

This Version 367.44 released on 23rd August 2016 with a fix of bugs and support to new GPU's

New GPU's

  • TITAN X (Pascal)
  • GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  • GeForce GTX 1060 3GB

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a regression that caused applications using indirect GLX to crash.
  • Fixed a regression introduced in 367.35 that caused the first modeset of the X server to display blank if the features requested in the X configuration file enabled the X driver's composition pipeline. This would be triggered, e.g., by MetaMode tokens such as ForceCompositionPipeline, ForceFullCompositionPipeline, Rotation, Reflection, and Transform.
