Sometimes you need to make a fresh Ubuntu install.
For some apps, just download and install.  My of apps:
  1. Chrome
  2. Mendeley
  3. Dropbox
  4. Anaconda
  5. Inkscape
  6. GIMP
  7. Texmaker


For the harder ones, you need some commands to issue after reinstalling.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt upgrade
$ ubuntu-drivers devices
$ sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
$ nvidia-smi
