Re: Dell 7773 NVIDIA MX150 3840x2160 Resolution Missing

I’ve often seen display problems after using xrandr commands. Sometimes using an additional command will help. In your case, it would be:

Code: Select all

xrandr --output HDMI-1-1 --mode 3840x2160 --rate 24 --pos 0x0
I won’t be back online until tomorrow. There’s more to discuss.

The command should have been xed admin:///usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf Test these commands to see if the picture is any better: xrandr --newmode "3840x2160_24.00" 209.75 3840 3888 3920 4000 2160 2163 2167 2185 +HSync -VSync xrandr --addmode HDMI-1-1 3840x2160_24.00 xrandr --output HDMI-1-1 --...

Re: Dell 7773 NVIDIA MX150 3840x2160 Resolution Missing

Here's a tip in case you're not aware of it, while using the Terminal or virtual Terminal like tty1. Press the UP Arrow key to bring up previously typed and executed commands, so you won't need to retype them. Keep pressing the key to bring up older commands. To display the command history, type: hi...

You will need to post the Xorg.0.log.old file to show the failed display attempt.

Re: Dell 7773 NVIDIA MX150 3840x2160 Resolution Missing

Well, I just confirmed that an xorg.conf file added to /etc/X11 is still being used, from testing I did in a Mint 19 beta installation. Here are the lines from the Xorg.0.log file: [ 12425.288] (==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" [ 12425.288] (==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X...

Re: Dell 7773 NVIDIA MX150 3840x2160 Resolution Missing

The xorg.conf file is still not listed in the Xorg.0.log file. Either it was removed or renamed after logging out and back in, or possibly it’s due to another change from Mint 18 to 19 and the file is not being read from that location. However, this location, from the log file, is still being read: ...

Mint 19 has also changed the commands used to give root authority for creating and editing files. I tested this command and it worked for me. Repeat this step in creating an xorg.conf file: EDITOR=xed sudoedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf In the opened empty file, add theses lines: Section "Device" Identifier...

Re: Dell 7773 NVIDIA MX150 3840x2160 Resolution Missing

The log file should have a line saying the xorg.conf file is being used but there is none. I wonder if it was renamed after logging out and back in. Open the File Manager and go to /etc/X11 and check for an xorg.conf file or any file that starts with xorg.conf and has something added to it.

Re: Dell 7773 NVIDIA MX150 3840x2160 Resolution Missing

On previous Mint versions, there was a special xorg.conf file created when using laptops with hybrid graphics, when the Nvidia GPU was selected, but you have Mint 19 and there have been changes, so there is no xorg.conf file. Use this command to create one: EDITOR=xed sudoedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf In ...

Re: Dell 7773 NVIDIA MX150 3840x2160 Resolution Missing

Use these commands in the Terminal and post the output:

Code: Select all

xrandr --verbose
xed ~/.config/monitors.xml
There may not be any output from the second command.

You can connect a DisplayPort to VGA adapter to the RX 480 card which supports 1920 x 1200:

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

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?

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...

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_...
