First, check what drivers are avaliable for your system:

sudo ubuntu-drivers devices | grep -o nvidia-[[:digit:]]*

Then install the one you want (replace XXX with the correct number):

sudo apt install nvidia-XXX 

In case you have Optimus Technology you would also want to install this:

sudo apt install nvidia-prime

In case you want to fine tune your settings, is recommended to install nvidia-settings as well:

sudo apt install nvidia-settings
