Wrong display resolution after (failed) manual NVIDIA driver update

Recommended Posts

If anyone has issues after manually installing the Nvidia driver on Linux, the solution (at least for me) is to run the installer again but follow with a -uninstall command and then use Software&Updates to reinstall the proper driver.

If you manually install the driver, it compiles the kernel module for you. It's important to make sure it's using the same gcc version as the one used to compile the kernel itself. You can set the environment variables CC (to gcc) and CXX (to g++) to specify the proper gcc versions before installing the driver with the NVIDIA_...sh script.
