In this Tutorial I will tell you how to install the Latest stable version of NVIDIA Graphics driver 375.66 On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 17.04 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 64-bit & 32-bit architecture.

This Version 375.66 released on 4th May 2016 with a fix of bugs and support to new GPU's

Support to New GPU


  • GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
  • Quadro P3000
  • Quadro M520
  • TITAN Xp

Restored support to GPU

  • GRID K520

Bug fixes


  • Fixed a bug that could cause EGL applications to crash when calling eglInitialize() multiple times on X11-backed displays.
  • Fixed a regression that could cause rendering corruption on a monitor connected via DisplayPort upon a modeset event (for example, changing resolutions or power cycling the monitor).
  • Updated the display configuration page in the nvidia-settings control panel to accurately reflect HDMI 3D refresh rates.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause OpenGL applications to crash when VT switching between multiple X servers.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the system to become unresponsive after resuming from power management suspend/hibernate. Additional symptoms of this bug included display flickering and "Xid 56" errors in the kernel log.
  • Fixed a bug that caused backlight brightness to not be controllable on some notebooks with DisplayPort internal panels.
  • Fixed a bug that left HDMI and DisplayPort audio muted after a framebuffer console mode was restored. For some displays, this caused the display to remain blank.
  • Fixed a bug that caused audio over DisplayPort to stop working when the monitor was unplugged and plugged back in or awoken from DPMS power-saving mode.
  • Fixed a regression that caused corruption in certain applications, such as window border shadows in Unity, after resuming from suspend.
  • Installation of the nvidia-drm kernel module is now optional. The new '--no-drm' option can be used to prevent nvidia-installer from building and installing nvidia-drm, on systems where this kernel module fails to build and/or load.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause some applications to crash when running with PRIME Sync.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented PRIME Sync from working on notebooks with GeForce GTX 4xx and 5xx series GPUs.
  • Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL apps to have excessive CPU usage when running with PRIME Sync but without native displays enabled.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause PRIME Sync to deadlock in the kernel, particularly common on Linux 4.10.
  • Fixed a bug that caused PRIME Sync to run slowly on systems with Pascal GPUs.
