The objective is to install the NVIDIA drivers on Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo Linux.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • How to perform a Nvidia driver installation using PPA repository
  • How to install the official Nvidia.com driver

Create ubuntu package repository

This guide will show how to configure a local repository server based on Ubuntu Bionic, but it can be adapted to a previous version of Ubuntu or even to any distribution using Aptitude as the main package management system, like Debian or Mint. You might typically want to setup a local repository to save Internet bandwidth.

In this tutorial you will learn:
  • How to install the required software on the server
  • How to select which repositories to mirror on the server
  • How to mirror selecting repositories locally on the server
  • How to configure the Linux client to use the local repository server

As stated above we are not considering a public or country mirror for this tutorial, but if you want to implement it consider that:

  • Your network bandwidth becomes very important
  • You need to register the repository to the Ubuntu list of mirrors
  • You must sync the mirror at least four times a day
  • Because you must mirror all previous versions you might need 2 TB or more of disk space
