    The latest version of Nvidia Graphics driver for Linux which is Nvidia 331.49 has been released and is available for download. It comes with plenty of fixes and changes. This article will guide you to install Nvidia 331.49 in Ubuntu and Linux Mint systems.


Fixes

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce GT 710
    • GeForce 825M
  • Fixed a regression that prevented nvidia-installer from cleaning up directories created as part of the driver installation.
  • Added a new X configuration option “InbandStereoSignaling” to enable/disable DisplayPort in-band stereo signaling. See “Appendix B. X Config Options” in the README for more information.
  • Fixed a bug that caused PBO downloads of cube map faces to retrieve incorrect data.
  • Fixed a bug in nvidia-installer that resulted in spurious error messages when opting out of installing the NVIDIA kernel module or source files for the kernel module.
  • Added experimental support for ARGB GLX visuals when Xinerama and Composite are enabled at the same time on X.Org xserver 1.15.
