Cinnamon Crash on Resolution Change w/ NVIDIA Drivers

Postby pumrum on Tue Jun 10, 2014 11:48 pm

System:
Lenovo W540 20BH | i7-4900MQ | 32gb RAM | 512gb SSD | 2880x1620 3k Display | NVIDIA Quadro K1100M 2gb | Intel AC 7260 Wireless

I am having issues with CInnamon crashing when I change my screen resolution using the NVIDIA proprietary driver. Steps to reproduce:

  1. Fresh install of LM17 Cinnamon 64bit on the system above
  2. update all packages and kernel (3.13.0-24-generic) available 10 Jun 2014
  3. reboot
  4. change resolution from default 2880x1620 (16:9) to 1920x1080 (16:9) using Display, click Apply
  5. logout no issues, reboot no issues
  6. change resolution back to default 2880x1620 (16:9)
  7. reboot
  8. enable nvidia-331 (331.38) via Driver Manager
  9. reboot
  10. change resolution from default 2880x1620 (16:9) to 1920x1080 (16:9) using Display, click Apply
  11. kicks me to logon screen
  12. cinnamon crashes when I try to logon, even after reboot
  13. when I log back on, resolution is still at 2880x1620 but now lowDPI, no cinnamon, basic window manager
  14. If I try to change resolution, I get the following error: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.cinnamon.SettingsDaemon was not provided by any .service files
  15. If I disable the NVIDIA driver using the NVIDIA X Server Settings utility and reboot, cinnamon starts working again
  16. once the Intel drivers are activated, I can change resolution down and back up without issue
  17. however, even if I switch back to default resolution and re-enable the NVIDIA driver, cinnamon continues to crash

I'm mostly interested in why I cannot change the resolution when using the NVIDIA driver. I can very easily reinstall and get cinnamon back up and running using the NVIDIA drivers, but I would really like to be able to dumb my resolution down a bit since I have some things that are not hiDPI (retina) ready yet. Apologies if I missed anything below. very long time ubuntu user (7 years), very new to linux mint and proprietary drivers, and a very long time since I've had to deal with anything xorg.

tried the same thing on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit with same drivers, changing resolution works fine. sigh, back to ubuntu for now :(

If anyone has any ideas I am more than willing to troubleshoot so I can get myself onto Mint full time...

Re: Cinnamon Crash on Resolution Change w/ NVIDIA Drivers

Postby alexlm on Wed Jun 25, 2014 9:02 pm

I use an external monitor on HDMI at 1440x900 while the laptop one has 1920x1080. The external screen is not detected in the Nvidia control panel and the desktop background on the laptop screen is a picture in picture of the two resolution scales while the external monitor screen gets the 1920x1080 resolution, as the laptop one, so the desktop image is not porperly scaled. If i disconnect the external moitor, the laptop desktop background is shown properly. If i try to change the resolution using the System Settings controls, i get an error:

Code: Select all

If i try to restart the mdm sevice, i get logged out of the session and i cannot log back in without it crashing again. All works fine again after i disable the 331.38 driver.

I have a Lenovo E540 laptop with Nvidia GF GT740M GPU; it could be an issue only with Lenovo TPs, i saw there are some other posts on the internet reporting issues with Lenovo laptops and Nvidia GPUs with Linux.

Re: Cinnamon Crash on Resolution Change w/ NVIDIA Drivers

You can still use the Nvidia GPU if you use the bumblebee/primus program combination - see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bumblebee for more details on how it works. So don't use the LM Driver Manager to install the Nvidia driver, purge the nvidia package installation and use instead apt-get from the CLI or Synaptic to download the nvidia-331 along with bumblebee and priums packages (and some ather dependencies, you also need bbswitch, which is installed by default). With this configuration i cannot use the Nvidia X Server Settings configuration utility for the driver but i can lauch programs for which the DRM (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_Rendering_Manager) would use the Nvidia GPU for graphics processing by running "optirun <application/program name>" from the CLI. I have not encountered any display issues by using this configuration. I also tried using the nvidia-prime package which is a similar mechanism, but this one didn't work.

I had a similar error with Cinnamon and NVIDIA when I hooked up an external monitor and changed resolutions. Basically, a file is created that causes the problem and deleting or renaming the file fixes the issue.
Code: Select all
rm ~/.config/monitors.xml

Hope this helps!

This is NOT a Lenovo problem but a NVIDIA driver problem. I had the same problem on an Asus notebook with nvidia G740M.
Could not disable monitor mirroring and hardware FN7 and FN-6 buttons for brightness were disabled as well.
Error:
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.cinnamon.SettingsDaemon was not provided by any .service files

Removing the monitors.xml did not solve the problem for me, the file is recreated on bootup anyway.
But I had installed the nvidia331 driver since it was marked as "recommended"... going back to nouveau driver solved all problems.
Nvidia sucks.
