How to Install NVIDIA Driver 430.09 in Ubuntu:

The Graphics Drivers Team PPA has built the 430.09 packages for all current Ubuntu releases, though it’s still in beta stage.

1. Open terminal either via Ctrl+Alt+T keyboard shortcut or by searching for ‘terminal’ from application menu. When it opens, run command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

Type user password (no asterisk feedback due to security reason) when it prompts and hit Enter to continue adding PPA.

2. For Linux Mint 19, you may need to run command to refresh system package cache:

sudo apt update

3. Launch Software & Updates utility, and navigate to Additional Drivers tab.

Then choose using “NVIDIA driver metapackage from nvidia-driver-430” from the list and click Apply Changes.

In addition, if the driver does not install after clicking ‘Apply Changes’, try running command in terminal:

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-430 nvidia-settings

For unmet dependency issue, try removing old NVIDIA proprietary drivers first.
