    On step 7, I'm using the Kali build with KDE, I don't see KDE mentioned in the link. Any idea how I should go about step 7?

    Thanks! I have an Acer with an Intel HD 520 and an nVidiaGeForce 940mx, this is gonna be a life saver!

    Arrow Not Able To Install Nvidia Drivers

    Hi mate i had problem in installing the drivers
    i followed every tutorials in internet and at last tried you tutorial but no result of fking nvidia drivers
    My laptop specs are:
    1.Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz × 8
    2intel graphics=Intel® Kabylake GT2
    3.Nvidia=geforce gtx 1050M
    4.8 gigs of ram
    5.128 gb nvme ssd

    My system

    Code:
    root@kali-Killer:~# uname -a
    Linux kali-Killer 4.9.0-kali3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.18-1kali1 (2017-04-04) x86_64 GNU/Linux
    Code:
    root@kali-Killer:~# cat /etc/*release*
    DISTRIB_ID=Kali
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=kali-rolling
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=kali-rolling
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Kali GNU/Linux Rolling"
    PRETTY_NAME="Kali GNU/Linux Rolling"
    NAME="Kali GNU/Linux"
    ID=kali
    VERSION="2017.1"
    VERSION_ID="2017.1"
    ID_LIKE=debian
    ANSI_COLOR="1;31"
    HOME_URL="http://www.kali.org/"
    SUPPORT_URL="http://forums.kali.org/"
    BUG_REPORT_URL="http://bugs.kali.org/"
    Started steps of nvidia drivers

    Code:
    root@kali-Killer:~# lspci | grep -E "VGA|3D"
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 591b (rev 04)
    01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile] (rev a1)
    I sucessfully disabled nouveau

    Code:
    echo -e "blacklist nouveau\noptions nouveau modeset=0\nalias nouveau off" > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
    update-initramfs -u && reboot
    r

    From this step I install nvidia drivers

    Code:
    apt-get install  nvidia-driver nvidia-xconfig
    after installing the drivers i restarted my laptop and shows me sad emoji symbol of crash
    and i went into recovery mode uninstall nvidia drivers to back to old intel graphics

    first i thought that nvidia didn't made CUDA toolkit for gtx 1050M
    so i went into some forums and searched cuda toolkit for my gpu
    some members said me that cuda toolkit support every gpu
    but why my gpu sucks

    so i hope you can fix this problem and sorry for my bad English
