Is it possible to run Steam in Peppermint OS? I have it installed but it says I need newer drivers.
If so can you give me instructions how to update the Nvidia drivers in beginner terms. Thanks.

(I'm assuming you're running Peppermint 3)

Menu > Preferences > Additional Drivers

Once that comes up, pick one of the drivers marked "Experimental" and install it. I'd suggest the 310 driver. I have Steam running in Peppermint 3 on my desktop with that driver and it works great.

No problem. If that solved your issue, please edit your original post and add this to the subject line: (Solved) Thanks in advance for doing that.
