This is what I am trying to do. I downloaded the latest driver for my VGA from http://www.nvidia.com. The installation needs the X11 to be shut down, so I log out of my account, then press Ctrl+Alt+F1, then log in with my username and password, then run the command
in every possible way, I have even tried CHMODing the package with 777 permissions, but still I'm getting the
sh: can't open NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-285.05.09.run
error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
