Hi. Thanks for your quick response.
I downloaded it from the French NVIDIA website (https://www.nvidia.fr/Download/driverResults.aspx/148724/fr)
So I downloaded it with your link this time, and I could open it with no checksum error. This time I also downloaded it directly on the Linux computer, while I previously transferred the file with a USB stick after downloading it from a Windows computer, although I wouldn’t think this could make a difference… Or so I thought until I tried to download directly with my initial link… and I worked. I’m puzzled. I could have disconnected the stick at a wrong time once… but 3 times?
So sorry for wasting your time, and thanks a lot. This thread can be closed and even removed, as it was a false alert.
Now I’m stumbling on the next hurdle, i.e. I get a “The distribution-provided pre-install script failed! Are you sure you want to continue?” So I aborted the install. I guess I should be able to find help on that somewhere on the web and hopefully won’t have to ask here again. I’m totally new to Linux/Ubuntu and I’m only rushing with this graphic card drivers install because by default the system doesn’t recognise the RTX2060 at all (it reads “llvmpipe (llvm 8.0, 256 bits”), and it displays nothing at all in the “Addtional drivers” section. As is, the display is just very poor and impossible to adjust.
Anyway, again I’m new to Linux, and this second issue is most certainly my mistake as well.
Thanks again, and have a nice week-end.
