How do I start Nvidia NSight?

I have tried installing with both the .deb and the .run file.

I cannot find the file physically that would run this application. Nor can I find a .desktop shortcut. Searching in gnome for “Nsight” or “Nvidia” or “Graphics” reveals nothing.

I am using ubuntu.

How do I actually start it?


Thank you for using Nsight Graphics. When you did the install using the .run file you should have had the option to install to a default path.

Something like:

Assuming this is the default path, then in the following directory there would be an executable called ‘ngfx-ui’ that you can run to start the Nsight Graphics GUI.

Thanks dwoods

I’m not quite sure what I was doing that day. I managed to install it and yeah it’s there in my home directory.

It runs fine, except apparently I need a Turing GPU (or later) (Still running a 1070)
