Re: Hybrid Graphics Troubles: Round 2

Did you do all the other steps in your other topic, which were to edit the 10-nvidia.conf and 10-amdgpu.conf files?

What is the output of this command: xrandr --listproviders

Re: Laptop Display doesn't work

You mentioned the laptop was very hot in a previous post. I suggest turning if off for a while and then checking for the blinking. If it is still present but was not present when running the live session with the installation USB, then try using the default 5.4.0-26 kernel.

Re: Laptop Display doesn't work

Remove the xorg.conf file: sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Log out and back in. The monitor may not work now if the HDMI port is internally connected to the Nvidia GPU.

If the laptop display is working, then post the output of xrandr --listproviders

Re: Laptop Display doesn't work

1. I assume the laptop display works with the monitor disconnected?

2. Use these commands and post the output:

Code: Select all

ls /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/
ls /etc/X11/

Re: AMD RX5700XT Ongoing Issues

Test these kernel parameters 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’t press Enter. Press the “ E ” key to edit. If no menu shows, then hold down the shift key while starting. Use the Down arrow key to go do...

Re: AMD FirePro drivers in 19.3 - Help!

You don’t need to install the PRO component of the Radeon Software package. Try using the command ./amdgpu-install to install the ALL OPEN component with the amdgpu driver. If that doesn’t work, then try using the 5.0 kernel. I have not been able to install any Radeon Software package using any 5.3 ...

Re: ASUS Tuf A15 - driver manager is empty (nvidia 2060)

You have very new hardware. The AMD Ryzen 9 4900H launch date was 3/16/20. You will need a newer kernel from here: https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ Your APU is based on the Renoir architecture so you will probably need the newest Renoir firmware update from 4-17-20 here: https://git.k...

Re: Lenovo Y540 only 1920x1080 resolution

The picture of your Nvidia Settings shows a 1680x1050 resolution, which uses a 16:10 aspect ration instead of 16:9. Is a scaled 1600x900 resolution listed?

Finally I discover how change resolution - from Nvidia panel settings (screen). I assumed you had already tried using the Nvidia Settings utility. Most of the time, if the resolution is not listed in the Display program, then it’s not available in Nvidia Settings either. It’s still strange why one ...

Do this test using a 1280x720 resolution, which has the same aspect ratio as 1920x1080. Download the 1280x720-edid.zip file below, which contains the file 1280x720.bin .

Re: Lenovo Y540 only 1920x1080 resolution

The xrandr --newmode and xrandr --addmode commands only work with the open source drivers; nouveau, intel, modesetting, radeon and amdgpu; not the Nvidia driver. 1920x1080 is the native resolution, which gives the best image quality. Is that too small for your eyes? Do you have a dual-boot with Wind...

If that doesn’t help, then run a live session using the Mint 19.3 installation USB to check if the sa...
