Install Nvidia Drivers on Linux

So you have just installed Linux and you want to make sure everything is working?

I have a few steps to make sure your GPU is in full use.

First I install Screenfetch in the terminal

sudo apt install screenfetch

Then type screenfetch in the terminal and the output will look like this

Now check and see if a GPU is listed, if it is good you are all sorted, if not lets keep going.

Now in the terminal type;

sudo apt install nvidia-375

After the install which is around 375MB reboot your pc, run screenfetch again and your GPU should be listed!
