"nvidia-inst" ---> command not found

Hi.
I have installed Endeavouros with XFCE DE with the lts kernel yesterday.
The System runs very nice.
I would like to install the proprietary Nvidia driver for my GTX 770. But it does not work.
“Command not found” is the result after i have entered the “nvidia-inst” command.
Can someone help me?

Thank you …

hello @xyphoid,
welcome to the purple universe :enos: :enos_flag: :penguin_face: :rocketa_purple: :purple_heart:

do you have the package ‘nvidia-inst’ installed?
check it with

yay -Qs nvidia-inst

no result means it is not installed.


if not, then you need to install that first.

yay -S nvidia-inst

and as your card is so called legacy you need to use legacy compatible driver version!
GTX 770 = https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/191232/en-us/

To get this one (470) you need to enable unofficial legacy repo and install this version:

nvidia-inst --legacyrepo
nvidia-ins --series 470xx
