Re: How do I install AMDGPU-Pro on Mint 19?

what is the current word for Mint 19 Cinnamon: should one use the non-free drivers from AMD with an RX570 or should I rather try to make do with the opensource drivers? I do certainly get sound over HDMI issues now and again but its erratic. Other users on this forum may be able to answer your ques...

Re: Nvidia Server Settings App limited

The use of the nvidia-drm modeset=1 parameter originates from this topic in the Nvidia Linux Graphics forum. Laptops and notebooks with Nvidia’s Optimus technology need to use PRIME Synchronization if screen tearing is present when the Nvidia GPU is enabled. https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/...

Re: Nvidia Server Settings App limited

After some more testing, I have experienced some more buggy behavior. I again added the nvidia-drm.modeset=1 parameter to grub, updated grub and rebooted. Running glxgears did not show the framerate was the same as the screen’s refresh rate. The parameter was not listed in the kernel command line in...

Re: Nvidia Server Settings App limited

That output looks ok. Use the command ls /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d and check if the files 10-nvidia.conf and 11-nvidia-prime.conf are listed.

Also try removing these kernel parameters: acpi_osi=! acpi_osi=Windows 2009

Re: Nvidia Server Settings App limited

The kernel parameter nouveau.runpm=0 is automatically added to grub after switching to the Intel GPU. It disables power management by the nouveau driver.

With the Nvidia GPU enabled, use this command and post the output: ls /etc/modprobe.d

Re: Nvidia Server Settings App limited

When the command sudo apt purge nvidia* was used, then this also removed nvidia-prime.

Use this command to reinstall it: sudo apt install nvidia-prime nvidia-prime-applet

Re: Nvidia Server Settings App limited

I didn’t get back right away because I was testing a system similar to yours with an external monitor connected to the HDMI port and there were no problems after adding the kernel parameter and removing it. However, not every hardware configuration works with every parameter. Removing the parameter ...

Re: Nvidia Server Settings App limited

My main issue is the screen tearing. I read up that I needed to use the "ForceCompositionPipeline" setting. But then somewhere else I read that it only works with Bumblebee and not with Prime. That X Config option will work with nvidia-prime for an external monitor if the HDMI port is directly hard...

Re: Higher power consumption LM19 compared to LM18?

caolislay and DraxNS, From your posted info, both of you have Optimus laptops. There is a bug in the operation of nvidia-prime in Ubuntu 18.04/Mint 19, where the Nvidia card is not powered off in Intel Mode, as it was in Mint 18.3, resulting in a greater battery drain. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubu...

Re: Radeon HD 4850 - Will it work with Mint 19 xfce?

You're quite right but that has no practical relevance of AMD 4xxx series cards because they're not supported by either and I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for either to support them. I probably should have been more specific as to the intent of my last post, but it was not a suggestion to instal...

Re: Cinnamon keeps crashing, using fallback mode

You previously installed bumblebee. Use this command to remove it: sudo apt remove bumblebee* primus*

Also, the kernel parameter nomodeset is being used. Remove that from the grub file and then update grub. Sometimes that parameter is needed to boot with the Nvidia driver.

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon nvidia 1050ti Problem

I would rename the downloaded driver N-390.87 so you won’t need to type the actual long name during the installation. Move the driver to Home . Check if there is a nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf file in /etc/modprobe.d with these lines: blacklist nouveau options nouveau modeset=0 If not, create it as ...

Re: Radeon HD 4850 - Will it work with Mint 19 xfce?

The amdgpu-pro driver is mostly open source but has a small amount of proprietary code added, so it is referred to as a hybrid driver. These lines will be seen in the Xorg.0.log file after installing that driver: [ 6.275] (II) AMDGPU(0): AMDGPU DDX hybrid version: 18.30.2.15 [ 6.275] (II) AMDGPU(0):...

Re: 2 different nvidia graphics cards (please help)

If you have only two monitors, then it's best to connect both to the same video card, if you want to use the Nvidia driver. Otherwise, if you want to use both video cards, open Nvidia Settings. This works better with Mint Xfce or Mate, not Cinnamon. Select the monitor that is disabled and select New...
