In this Tutorial I will tell you how to install the Latest stable version of NVIDIA Graphics driver 375.26 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 on computers supporting the 32/ 64-bit architecture.

This Version 375.26 released on 14th DEC 2016 with a fix of bugs and support to new GPU
  • Quadro M3000 SE

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a regression that prevented the backlight on some notebook computer displays from turning back on after being shut off.
  • Fixed a regression that prevented the console from being restored properly when using SLI.
  • Fixed a bug that caused installer manifest entries for some 32-bit compatibility libraries to be duplicated in the installer package. These entries led nvidia-installer to issue warning messages when installing the 32-bit compatibility libraries, for example: 'Cannot create symlink /usr/lib/libEGL.so (File exists)'.
  • Fixed a regression that could cause the nvidia-settings control panel to crash on startup with certain GPU configurations.
  • Fixed a regression that prevented the GLX_NV_swap_group extension from working when using SLI or Quadro Sync.
  • Fixed a long-standing bug that caused the NVIDIA X driver to not correctly detect AC/battery hotplug events on notebooks.
  • Fixed an interaction problem between the Linux kernel's CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY feature (new in Linux kernel 4.8) and nvidia-drm.ko with modeset=1 enabled. This problem caused CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY to erroneously halt the system, issuing reports of the form:
  • usercopy: kernel memory overwrite attempt detected to ffff8803e8ec7ce0 () (8 bytes)
  • Fixed a bug that prevented nvidia-bug-report.sh from finding relevant messages in kernel log files.
  • Added support for the screen_info.ext_lfb_base field, on kernels that have it, in order to properly handle UEFI framebuffer consoles with physical addresses above 4GB.
