Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, the Nvidia 337.19 Beta drivers for Linux have been recently released, coming with a bug-fix fix for HDMI at 4K resolutions, a few new nvidia-settings command-line commands for over clocking and under clocking the GPU and a few fixes for the NVIDIA Settings GUI for controlling the clock, among others. For information about this release, see the official announcement.
In this article I will show you how to install Nvidia 337.19 Beta on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Elementary OS 0.3 Isis and Pinguy OS 14.04, via PPA.
