Re: Uninstall x server drivers to install new ones

I had forgotten about desktop systems with dual graphics. They will also display the graphics drivers similar to a laptop with hybrid graphics. On the desktop systems, usually the integrated Intel GPU will be disabled when there is a discrete Nvidia card, unless there is a special need to connect mo...

Re: SATA controller card insanity

I installed this controller card in a PC with Mint 19 a few months ago and it works fine without doing anything except to disable the onboard SATA controller in the BIOS first, to be able to boot with it. https://www.amazon.com/Port%EF%BC%8CMarvell-Non-Raid-Express-Expansion-Controller/dp/B07M93P18S...

Re: Uninstall x server drivers to install new ones

I just pulled up a thread for someone with LM20 who used Driver Manager to load x-server(nouveau) and both modesetting and nouveau are listed as display drivers and the renderer is NVA8. The only situation where you could see both the modesetting and nouveau drivers loading are with Optimus laptops...

Re: Uninstall x server drivers to install new ones

It looks like nouveau is partially loaded. The device driver is loaded but there is no nouveau display driver showing (only modesetting is showing). That might be why Driver Manager does not seem to be working correctly. Graphics: Device-1: NVIDIA G92 [GeForce 9800 GT] driver: nouveau v: kernel Dis...

Re: nvidia-graphics-drivers-450: trying to overwrite items in libnvidia-common-450-server 450.80.02-0ubuntu0.18.04.3

So, I did sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade && sudo apt-get -y autoremove and it all worked. I would be very cautious with using the command sudo apt-get dist-upgrade . Some users have reported severe problems after using it. https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=175388

Re: nvidia-graphics-drivers-450: trying to overwrite items in libnvidia-common-450-server 450.80.02-0ubuntu0.18.04.3

My questions from this are: Why are there "nvidia-driver-450" and "nvidia-driver-450-server" drivers? What is the difference between them? Is Ubuntu putting them out or am I getting one/both of them from somewhere else? Since 450 and 450-server seem to conflict, I am curious as to why I have them b...

Re: Laptop screen not detecting with BIOS set to Dynamic graphics (Ext monitor does display)

That xorg.conf file is configured for a desktop system, not for a laptop with hybrid graphics, unless you only want to use the Nvidia GPU. Remove it: sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Also post the contents of the xorg.conf file. The Xorg.0.log shows that file exists.

Re: Problems with video driver/hardware acceleration on newly installed Mint 20 Cinnamon

Eva B, You may need to install the Nvidia driver in the future if you need to connect an external monitor. Then some additional configuration will be needed. It will depend on whether the laptop’s video port is internally connected to the AMD or Nvidia GPU. So far, I have only been involved in one t...

Re: nvidia-graphics-drivers-450: trying to overwrite items in libnvidia-common-450-server 450.80.02-0ubuntu0.18.04.3

If Driver Manager now lists nvidia-driver-450, then I would expect it to install.

I never got to see the nvidia-driver-450 update in Update Manager and whether it was exactly the same as the one now listed in Driver Manager.

I have updated the the Kernal as they are released, but did not know to uninstall NVIDIA drivers prior to doing this. You don’t need to uninstall the Nvidia driver when installing a different kernel.

Re: Laptop screen not detecting with BIOS set to Dynamic graphics (Ext monitor does display)

Try installing a newer kernel for better support for your new hardware. The Intel Core i7-10875H processor had a launch date in the second quarter of this year. SMG mentioned this in his first post and perhaps that should have been the first step. To install newer kernels, install the Ubuntu Mainlin...
