Format and install Linux Lite OS question

During Linux Lite OS installation, do I need to install third-party software for graphics and Wi-Fi hardware and additional media formats? I am using UEFI secure boot and I am using Nvidia Quadro K620 graphics driver (proprietary, tested).

You are asking for trouble when you DO NOT install the 3rd party drivers imho.

Yes you should install the third party drivers and multi-media codecs. You will then need to create a Machine Owner Key (MOK) to configure Secure Boot. I cover this in a bit more detail in a Ubuntu 20.04 installation guide here:
