Canonical invites Ubuntu community members to test nVIDIA graphic cards

1 min read

Canonical’s Will Cooke recently sent an invitation to members of the Ubuntu Linux community to test the proprietary and open source drivers for NVIDIA graphics cards to provide a better and smoother experience for Ubuntu users. Canonical is looking for volunteers with NVIDIA graphics cards to test drivers (including NVIDIA proprietary drivers and open source Nouveau drivers) on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and the upcoming Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish), and feedback on the relevant problem.

Will Cooke said, “We are looking for committed volunteers to test Nvidia with proprietary and open source
drivers. The goal of this testing is to catch regressions early in the cycle, and fix bugs before they reach a major audience. It is for Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic) or Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic), in laptop or PC machines.”

If you are currently using a Nvidia card computer and are interested in participating in the test, it is recommended to divide the spare partition on the disk, install Ubuntu 18.10 or Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and then participate in the test.
