Vulkan driver upgrade not working

Ubuntu 16.04
64 bit
GeForce GT 710 (has Vulkan support!)

Hey,

I tried to install the vulkan driver upgrade from this page: https://developer.nvidia.com/vulkan-driver
I chose the 64 bit version, logged out, closed x-session, made it executable, run it and recieved the following error log…

If you have rebooted, then Nouveau may be enabled for other reasons, such as being included in the system initial ramdisk or in your X configuration file.

I’m following the tutorial on http://www.vulkan-tutorial.com . example doesn’t work, 'cause the vulkan driver doesn’t work. so why is that? I followed the simple steps… it makes no sense…

Thanks for any help in advance

Hi,

Lines 20 and 21 in the error log you pasted explain why the driver could not be installed. It appears that the nouveau driver is in use. The procedure for disabling it is specific to your distribution.

Alternatively, since you are on Ubuntu, I would recommend installing the latest drivers available on the graphics-driver PPA:
