Re: Cinnamon Crashes with Nvidia Driver

You must have a portable device with hybrid graphics. Open the Terminal, use these commands and post the output:

Code: Select all

inxi -SCGx
dpkg -l |grep -i nvidia
lspci -nnk |egrep -A3 -i "3D|VGA"
ls /etc/modprobe.d
ls /etc/X11

Re: Bumblee causing GLX render to fail on Intel/nvidia setup

The log file shows nogpumanager is enabled and there is an xorg.conf file. If you’re using Bumblebee, then both are not needed. Both may be needed if you’re using nvidia-prime. I assume you added nogpumanager because nvidia-prime was not working to switch from the intel to the Nvidia GPU?

Re: "nomodeset" and projector

I didn’t ask you to use the sudo apt remove xserver-xorg-video-intel command again. You already did that, but since that time, you have not posted any info to verify that your system is using the modesetting driver, so that it can be tested to see if it works better than the intel driver in preventi...

Re: "nomodeset" and projector

I’ve looked over all your posts again and I see no evidence that you have tested removing nomodeset after using this command to remove the intel driver: sudo apt remove xserver-xorg-video-intel I want to see evidence that the modesetting driver is really being loaded when the cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log...

I have already asked you twice to remove nomodeset from the grub file but this kernel command line from system startup shows that you still have not removed it: [ 31.879] Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-4.10.0-38-generic root=UUID=cb50639e-db08-4fa7-b52a-e24402772f4b ro nomodeset acpi_...

Re: Problem with dual monitor on Acer Nitro 5

If you have changed back to the intel GPU, then use the command sudo prime-select nvidia again. When the Nvidia GPU is selected, a special xorg.conf file should be created that looks similar to this: Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "layout" Screen 0 "nvidia" Inactive "intel" EndSection Section "De...

Re: Problem with dual monitor on Acer Nitro 5

1. First, use this command and post the output: xed /etc/X11/xorg.conf . 2. Then open the Driver Manager and install the nvidia-384.130 driver again. After rebooting, use this command to switch to the Nvidia driver: sudo prime-select nvidia . Copy and post the message in the Terminal window. Log out...

yes, but as i said, if i have no added parameter then my laptop freezing forever... That was when the intel video driver was being used but now you have removed that driver, so your system should switch to using the modesetting video driver. You now want to check if the freezing occurs while using ...

Re: "nomodeset" and projector

The line from your inxi -Gx output shows the fbdev driver is loading. That should not happen now unless you still have the nomodeset parameter added to the grub file.

Click the Apply button. Log out and back in. END OF EDITING . You will need to force Xorg to use the 144 Hz refresh ra...

Re: Problem with dual monitor on Acer Nitro 5

So you have already tried installing the recommended Nvidia driver in Driver Manager and then selecting the Nvidia GPU in the NVIDIA Prime applet in the System Tray area, or in the Nvidia X Server Settings utility on the PRIME Profiles...

Re: How much memory does the graphics adapter have ?

A BIOS update is mentioned often as a possible solution. This article appears to have some info that may help, if you can figure out how the author got his results from converting the data from the dmesg | grep BIOS output, which I assume is in hexadecimal format: https://www.jungo.com/st/document/t...

Re: Dual Monitors: 2nd monitor not detected

The info you posted shows that the motherboard has two video ports. The second one is probably VGA. If it is, can you connect the iiyama monitor to it? For your other problem, try using this command: xrandr --output HDMI-A-3 --mode 1920x1200 --primary --pos 0x0 --output HDMI-1-3 --mode 1920x1080 --p...

Re: Dual Monitors: 2nd monitor not detected

Why are you connecting to the VGA port on the iijama monitor. The user manual says it also has an HDMI port: https://iiyama.com/gb_en/products/prolite-b2403ws-1/1863.download That’s probably why the 1920x1200 resolution was not detected, because the HDMI to VGA adapter is limited to a maximum of 192...

What is the brand and model number of the monitor and TV?

Also post the Xorg.0.log file. Open the System Log in the menu to view it.

Re: Dual Monitors: 2nd monitor not detected

1. Use this command and post the output: xrandr --verbose

2. Are you now connecting both monitors to the Radeon card or still connecting one to the Intel GPU?

3. What is the startup script you’re using and did you add it to Startup Applications?
