I've tried to install and configure nvidia drivers on Linux Mint 18 but still have errors.

Can anyone help me?

See some errors:

wellington@wellington-mint18 ~ $ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | egrep -i "nvidia|nouveau"
[    18.063] (==) Matched nvidia as autoconfigured driver 0
[    18.063] (==) Matched nouveau as autoconfigured driver 1

wellington@wellington-mint18 ~ $ sudo modprobe nvidia_current;
modprobe: FATAL: Module nvidia_current not found in directory /lib/modules/4.4.0-21-generic

See scenario:

wellington@wellington-mint18 ~ $ uname -a
Linux wellington-mint18 4.4.0-21-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 18 18:33:37 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
wellington@wellington-mint18 ~ $ cat /etc/*release

I tried too: https://gist.github.com/wellington1993/da8b51cae81a05156746bbc8e8304ec6

  • The ways to solve the problem(for this moment) is: - Use the kernel 4.8.0-32-generic - Update to Linux Mint 18.1 (Instead 18.0) - Disable edge, beta, unstable repositories or lists - Install the 367.57 driver version (Specific version) - Follow gist.github.com/wellington1993/da8b51cae81a05156746bbc8e8304ec6 script But I wait for more opinions. – Wellington1993 Dec 25 '16 at 5:42

After I read it from NVIDIA site.You didnt need to do modprobe nvidia-375.But you should add NOMODESET in GRUB when the display was not right.I did some searches for you.

  • It's correct but the NOMODESET only work on 18.1 (.1) I had 18.0 version. Anyway upgrade the distribution version is necessary. – Wellington1993 Dec 26 '16 at 1:02
  • I tried the "NOMODESET" but unfortunately it is not related to the problem. – Wellington1993 Dec 26 '16 at 1:04
  • But I accepted because solve other problems like that. – Wellington1993 Apr 1 at 13:08
  • But if don't resolve try the comment with "gist" cited in the question. – Wellington1993 Apr 1 at 13:12
