I have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti installed on my system. I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04.
$ lspci | grep VGA
04:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF116 [GeForce GTX 550 Ti] (rev a1)
NVIDIA tools indicate that the driver is not running, though. And nvidia-settings gets a glib error.
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded
ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system
(nvidia-settings:37667): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 19:27:51.992: g_object_unref: assertion ‘G_IS_OBJECT (object)’ failed
I have the latest driver installed for it.
$ sudo apt -y install nvidia-driver-390
