Hello, I installed zorin os core about a week ago (it's the first time I'm using Linux) and I was really enjoying it, but then I turned on my notebook and a message came up from Software Updater saying that there were updates. It was the third time that Software Updater message appeared and like the last time I clicked on update but this time it said that I need to restart my notebook and so I did, since then every time I start any video (youtube,netflix,odysee...) it doesn't take 10 minutes that the image stops, the last 2 seconds of audio start to repeat, the mouse and the keyboard commands stop working and my only option is press the off button to restart.
I have two browser: ungoogled-chormium (installed via github but supported by the zorin app store) and the standard firefox and incredibly the one that gives this problem the most is the standard firefox.
3.How do i Update that.
For simplicity - Can i recommend that you open Software & Updates from the app menu. You can open the app menu from the taskbar (Panel) and type software and it will offer it up in the list.
Once open, move to the Additional Drivers tab.
Look to see which Nvidia driver you are currently using.
If using Nouveau (Open Source) try switching to the latest 510 or above Proprietary Tested Nvidia driver.
Reboot and test...
If You do not see these listed, open terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and run
sudo ubuntu-drivers install
Then open Software and Updates, Additional drivers and check.
If these do not work, then please follow @anon6471198 's posts on how to install directly from Nvidia.
(Sorry for the edit- the post submitted while I was typing it. )
yep, I used this sudo ubuntu-drivers install and apart from the fact that the terminal asked me for my password 3 times it was all right and now the software and updates is showing an nvidia drive and no longer a "manual drive" I will see if it will be okay but apparently yes.
I just have one more question should I keep updating my system with the update software? I know that if I don't update the system can have security holes but if I update it will bug the nvidia card and I will need to do this every time?
thank you in advance.
