Re: External Monitor Not Working

You were supposed to post the info with the Nvidia GPU selected but the Intel GPU was selected.

Is the monitor connected to a DisplayPort or HDMI output?

Post the output of: inxi -SMCGx

Re: How to install amdgpu-pro driver?

Are you seeing the same output that user sampctech got in this post:
viewtopic.php?f=59&t=272074#p1515270

What command are you using for the AMDGPU-Pro installation? If it has the -y option in it, then that should be removed.

Re: Scrollbar Sliders Almost Invisable

Copy the theme to the .themes folder (a hidden folder) in your Home directory and edit the slider-v.svg and slider-h.svg files in that location. Any changes will have priority over the original location and won’t be affected by updates. For example, for the Mint-X theme: sudo cp -R /usr/share/themes...

Use this command to install the i965-va-driver for VA-API support for the Intel GPU: apt install i965-va-driver Then run vainfo again. Read the info on this web page, under the section Verifying VA-API to interpret the output: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Hardware_video_acceleration

Re: Dual monitors wont work!

It appears that you were connecting the second monitor to the motherboard’s VGA port. If you want to try using the integrated graphics, then test this kernel parameter by editing the kernel command line. The effect will only last for one session. At the GRUB boot menu select the correct line but don...

Re: Blue screen with server x error message after nvidia driver update

I'll give that a try...but on the subject of hard drive would it be easier to wipe it and re install at this point. It’s probably better to re-install, if it’s not a great inconvenience. During my testing of Nvidia graphics drivers, I very infrequently run into the same problem you’re having; not b...

Re: Dual monitors wont work!

Have you verified that the HDMI connected monitor and cable work correctly on another system?

Is the monitor using any adapter or switch?

What is the brand and model number of that monitor?

Use these commands and post the output: xrandr --prop and ls /sys/class/drm

That file should only be created on laptops with Optimus technology (Integrated Intel + Nvidia card).

Would you post the contents of the nvidia-kms.conf file: cat /lib/modprobe.d/nvidia-kms.conf

Re: Updating NVIDIA drivers on Mint 19.1 Cinnamon

You first installed nvidia-driver-390 through the Driver Manager. That driver should have been removed before installing drivers from the graphics-drivers PPA.

Use these commands and post the output:

Code: Select all

1. lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 -i "3D|VGA"
2. ls /lib/modprobe.d
3. mokutil --sb-state

You downloaded a driver from Nvidia’s website. That won’t work on a laptop with Optimus technology, like you have.

I've been in troubles when I have tried to update the kernel : black screen when rebooting. To make it work, I think you have to uninstall the drivers (which can be tricky if I have understood correctly), then update the kernel and then reinstall the new drivers?
