With the thousands of commands available for the command line user, how can you remember them all? The answer is, you don’t. The real power of the computer is its ability to do the work for you. To get it to do that, we use the power of the shell to automate things. First we test, second we write and then we provide.
Our nVIDIA Installer script is a collections of commands that are stored in a file. The shell can read this file and act on the commands as if they were typed at the keyboard. This is the very early beta of this script, and soon enough there will be a GUI version with lot’s of features.
Please notice that our script works only with Ubuntu. No other Linux distributions are supported.
After you download the tar.gz file just right click and unzip it. The executable is the nvidia_installer.sh
- Just open a terminal (Ctrl + T)
- type sudo -i
- hit enter and provide your password to become admin
- “drag n’ drop” the nvidia_installer.sh executable to the terminal
- hit enter to run the script
