Nvidia-installer not found

Hi all! I am new to Endeavouros and Arch. I am trying to set up my Nvidia drivers as per https://endeavouros.com/docs/hardware-and-network/nvidia-installer/ but get the3 following error in the terminal

[andrew@andrewsarchus ~]$ sudo nvidia-installer -t
[sudo] password for andrew:
sudo: nvidia-installer: command not found
[andrew@andrewsarchus ~]$

Any ideas??

Welcome to the forums Andrewsarchus. Thanks for giving EndeavourOS a try.

Try
$ sudo nvidia-installer-dkms -t

I believe the dkms version of nvidia-installer is the only version installed out of the box. With nvidia-installer you have to take action on the Nvidia drivers with every new kernel. The dkms version handles that for you.

EDIT:
Also, which Desktop Environment are you using?

Hi Pudge. Thanks for the information. I will try it out later this evening and let you know the outcome.

My GUI is Xfce

@Andrewsarchus
A tip: you can use the Tab key to complete the (partial) command while writing.
For example, write

nvidia-ins

and then hit the Tab key, possibly more than once.

As @joekamprad mentioned, we must update the wiki page. The nvidia-installer-dkms is mentioned there, but it should be more clearly stated that it is the default tool.
