Nvidia GTX 750 with Ubuntu 16.04

I’ve been using the nvidia-364 drivers for my Nvidia GTX 750 graphics card for the past few years.  These have to be reinstalled with each kernel upgrade.  A recent kernel upgrade led to the unfortunate finding that this driver is no longer available.  I went in search of what replaced it and found that the current version is nvidia-375.  The current instructions are as follows:

  1. Log in to your account in the TTY
  2. sudo apt-get purge nvidia-*
  3. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
  4. sudo apt-get update
  5. sudo apt-get install nvidia-375
  6. Reboot
