Nvidia Linux Display Driver 64-bit 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 only computers supporting the 64-bit architecture. For 32-bit support, see this link. It is a native Linux driver that provides users with only a command-line installer, as well as a settings panel. It’s also the number one choice for gaming users.

How do I install the Nvidia graphics driver?

In order to install the Nvidia Linux Display Driver on your Linux box, you will have to first download the binary package using the “Download” button above, save the run file on your Home directory, open a TTY and execute the “sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-xxx.xx.run” command (without quotes), as root (with sudo), where xxx.xx is the version number.

Keep in mind though, that you will have to install the Linux kernel header packages first! During the installation, you will be asked if you want to manually edit the X configuration file or let the installer do all the hard work. Alternatively, it is possible to automatically configure it by running the nvidia-xconfig command via a Linux terminal emulator after the installation.

What Nvidia graphics cards are supported by this driver?

Officially, the Nvidia Linux Display Driver supports a wide range of Nvidia graphics cards, much more than the open source Nouveau driver supports. Most of the ION, ION LE, Quadro Plex, Quadro Sync, GRID, NVS, nForce Professional 3000, Quadro FX, Quadro Blade, as well as all the GeForce series are supported at this time.

Is my Linux distribution supported?

During our tests, here at the Softpedia Testing Labs, we’ve successfully installed the Nvidia Linux Display Driver on numerous distributions of Linux, including the popular Ubuntu. It plays well with Arch Linux, Debian GNU/Linux, Linux Mint, openSUSE, Fedora, and many other well-known Linux kernel-based OSes.
