First watch the first video. You will be on your own in a TTY later to be able to install the nvidia driver. This can not be filmed.
CTRL + ALT + F2.
Then we need to shutdown XORG.
sudo systemctl stop lightdm
Then we install
sudo pacman -S linux-headers
or the linux-lts-headers if you are using the linux-lts kernel.
Only then can we run the .run file from Nvidia.
You will see several popups. Make up your own mind what is best for you.
- 32-bits libraries yes or no – I choose no
- nvidia xconfig auto update xorg.conf – I choose yes
Then you reboot and hope for the best.
Uninstalling is repeating the steps but now
sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-430.50.run --uninstall
The switches -A and –help may assist you as well.
