      The Debian drivers are outdated & have no/poor Vulkan support so you need to install them manually.

      1 – Create a setup folder in an easy to find path from the terminal like /home/UserName/nvidia

      2 – Download Nvidia Vulkan Drivers (ideally latest) to this folder (or move it there): nvidia.com/en-us/drivers/unix/

      3 – Create simple named text file scripts with .sh (instead of .txt or .doc) that will be executed as sh nameOfMySh.sh

      3a – Create purge.sh (or p.sh) with the text inside: sudo apt-get remove –purge nvidia-*

      3b – Create install.sh (or i.sh) with the text inside (edit the driver name to the one in the folder): sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-driverType.run

      3c – Create kill.sh (or k.sh) with the text inside: sudo service slim stop

      3d – Create start.sh (or s.sh) with the text inside: sudo service slim start

      3e – Create options.sh (or o.sh) with the text inside: sudo nvidia-settings

      4 – Write down or take a photo of these steps in case you forget.

      5 – Close & save all apps.

      6 – Double click kill.sh (or k.sh) to go into fullscreen Terminal mode.

      6a – If this fails Open a Terminal inside of the Nvidia path or cd to it with: cd home/UserName/nvidia

      6b – Type sh kill.sh (or k.sh).

      7 – From fullscreen mode cd to the nvidia path by typing: cd home/UserName/nvidia

      8 – Purge nvidia driver settings by typing: sh purge.sh (or sh p.sh)

      9 – Install nvidia driver by typing: sh install.sh (or sh i.sh)

      9a – Continue & add x-features to the driver. Driver may hang with warnings after 5 minutes of doing nothing.

      9b – Manually reboot your computer with the physical reset button or by holding the power button (then power it back on).

      10 – Login (you should be still in fullscreen terminal mode, if not repeat step 6-6b.

      11 – Repeat step 7 to cd back to the nvidia path.

      12 – Repeat step 9 to install the driver.

      13 – This time the driver will ask you to Blacklist: make to sure enter yes.

      14 – Installer will exit on finish back to the terminal. Reboot/restart by typing: sudo reboot

      That’s it, the nvidia driver should now be installed upon reboot.

      15 – After logging in check your nvidia settings by double clicking options.sh (or o.sh) in your nvidia path.

      15a – If that fails check your nvidia settings by opening a terminal & typing: sudo nvidia-settings
