How To : Install NVIDIA 346.47 Graphics Drivers in Ubuntu/Linux Mint Systems

    The latest version of Nvidia Graphics driver for Linux which is Nvidia 346.47 has been released and is available for download. It comes with plenty of fixes and changes. This article will guide you to install Nvidia 346.47 in Ubuntu and Linux Mint systems.


Fixes

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • Quadro K620M
      Quadro K2200M
      GeForce GTX 965M
  • Fixed a bug that could cause rendering corruption in GLX clients using PBOs and/or VBOs when using GLX indirect rendering.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Xinerama layouts which included X screens with 'Option "UseDisplayDevice" "none"' to be represented incorrectly in the nvidia-settings control panel.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause glXSwapBuffer() to block for longer than necessary in multi-threaded GLX applications using the GLX_NV_delay_before_swap extension.
  • Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL applications using the NV_path_rendering extension to crash after a modeswitch event.
  • Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort audio to stop working after monitors are hotplugged.
More details in the Release Notes.

Installation
