Canonical Needs Your Help to Test Nvidia GPU Support for Ubuntu 18.10 and 18.04

Canonical is looking for committed volunteers that own a computer with a dedicated Nvidia graphics card to test drive both the Nvidia proprietary graphics drivers and the open-source Nouveau graphics driver on both the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and the upcoming Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) releases and report any issues they might encounter. If you’re interested in participating, you will need to have a computer with a dedicated Nvidia graphics card, a spare partition on the disk drive to run the install test on a fresh Ubuntu 18.10 or Ubuntu 18.04 LTS installation, and an active Internet connection. Of course, it’s also possible to run the test on a live session if you can’t resize your current partitions.
