What's new in Nvidia Linux Display Driver 349.12 Beta:

  • Added support for G-SYNC monitors when used together with non-G-SYNC monitors.When G-SYNC is enabled, non-G-SYNC monitors will display with tearing.
  • Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-settings to crash when assigning an attribute whose value is a display ID on a system with multiple X screens.
  • Updated the reporting of in-use video memory in the nvidia-settings control panel to use the same accounting methods used in other tools such as nvidia-smi. nvidia-settings was not taking some allocations into account, e.g. framebuffer memory for the efifb console on UEFI systems, causing discrepancies in the values reported by different tools.
  • Removed the "EnableACPIHotkeys" X configuration option. This option has been deprecated and disabled by default since driver version 346.35. On modern Linux systems, display change hotkey events are delivered to the desktop environment as key press events, and the desktop environment handles the display change by issuing requests through the X Resize and Rotate extension (RandR).

Nvidia Linux Display Driver Beta is a proprietary OpenGL video driver that tries to bring bleeding-edge features for graphics cards produced by Nvidia and used under a GNU/Linux operating system. Both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x86_64) architectures are supported at this time.

Fair warning!

Before reading further, please keep in mind that this is a Beta version. Even if it brings all the latest features and fixes annoying bugs from previous or current stable releases of the driver, it is still an unstable piece of software that may cause unpredictable issues or damage your hardware. Because of this, we do not recommend to install this Beta driver on production machines. You have been warned!

Installation instructions

For 32-bit systems:

Make sure that the kernel headers of your Linux distribution are installed, switch to a TTY console using the CTRL+ALT+F2 keyboard combination, locate the installer and type sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-xxx.xx.run as root (where xxx.xx is the current version number of the package) to install the driver.

For 64-bit systems:

Making sure that the kernel headers of your Linux distribution are installed, switch to a TTY console using the CTRL+ALT+F2 keyboard combination, locate the installer and type sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-xxx.xx.run as root (where xxx.xx is the current version number of the package) to install the driver.

During the installation, users will be asked if they want to edit the X configuration file manually or let the installer do all the work. Alternatively, after installation, you can run the nvidia-xconfig command via a X11 terminal emulator to set the new driver as default and generate the configuration file.

If you’re looking for the current stable releases of the Nvidia Linux Display Driver, do not hesitate to search our Linux section. Keep in mind though that Nvidia provides short and long lived branches, so we recommend to go with the long lived ones for extended support.
