In this Tutorial, I will tell you how to install the Latest stable version of NVIDIA Graphics driver 387.22 On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS  / 17.04 and LinuxMint 17 

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 387.22 released on 30th October 2017 with a fix of bugs and support to new GPU's

Support for New GPU

  • GTX 1070Ti
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a regression that could cause driver errors when setting modes that include DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport devices.
  • Added an nvidia.ko kernel module parameter, NVreg_EnableBacklightHandler, which can be used to enable experimental handling of laptop backlight brightness through /sys/class/backlight/. This handler overrides the ACPI-based one provided by the video.ko kernel module.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause some eDP G-SYNC displays to flicker at low refresh rates.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause OpenGL applications to crash after a prolonged DPMS sleep state on a monitor driven with PRIME Sync.
  • Fixed a bug that artificially limited the maximum pixel clock to 300 MHz when using certain more capable DisplayPort to HDMI adapters.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the NVIDIA kernel modules from building for non-SMP Linux kernels.
  • pdated the output of `nvidia-smi nvlink --status` to include reporting NVLink speed.
  • Fixed a bug that caused incorrect PCI topology reporting in nvidia-smi on Intel Skylake systems.
