Start your Software-center and search the latest nvidia-driver for your card. Select it and press "install". I dit it with dnfdragora and I searched the driver and tools for my Nvidia card and installed it. I use akmod for automatic updates when a new kernel is published. That is all. Use the driver from rpmfusion-nonfree... repositories and not from Nvidia directly, because you can get issues. I tested it.

That would require you have rpmfusion-nonfree-updates enabled, wouldn't it?

"Use the driver form Fedora repositories" is misleading; Fedora does not provide any nvidia driver (only the open source nouveaudriver). The driver that appears in Software Center seems to come from It will show up only after enabling Third-party repositories,which adds a repository called rpmfusion-nonfree-nvidia-driver.repo.

Below link has a guide on how to install the proprietary driver from on Fedora.

dkms is used to build to kernel modules after a kernel update (that seems worry-free)

Please note, I am just linking the guide, I have not tested it.

Florian: your link is very helpfully, but it could be, that restoring the plymouth screen does not work like in my case. I tested it.
