Install / Uninstall NVIDIA Driver 340.106 On Ubuntu / LinuxMint

In this Tutorial, I will tell you how to install the Latest stable version of NVIDIA Graphics driver 340.106 On Ubuntu 18.04 / 16.04 LTS and LinuxMint 18.

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 and this version released on 16th May

What's New in 340.106


  • Fixed a compatibility problem between the nvidia.ko's Page Attribute Table (PAT) support and the kernel Page Table Isolation (PTI) patches.
  • To optimize stores to memory, nvidia.ko contains support for configuring the CPU's PAT registers, as a fallback for Linux kernels that predate kernel native PAT support. On any recent kernel with CONFIG_X86_PAT enabled, the driver will detect that setup has already been done and skip its PAT setup. However, a static inline function called by nvidia.ko's PAT fallback support was updated in the PTI patches to use the EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL symbol 'cpu_tlbstate'. nvidia.ko was updated to only contain its PAT fallback support, at build time, on kernels without CONFIG_X86_PAT.
