Black login screen with nvidia drivers

Hi, I'm using LMDE4 on a laptop with nvidia Optimus double GPU. There have been huge improvements with the recent updates in LMDE ! I no longer have the 1080 line interlaced display when I use an external HDMI screen. And after 5 years of unsuccessful trials, I managed today to get the nvidia propri...

Re: How to remove tearing in fullscreen video playback ?

Of course, there is always a solution. To watch videos at full fps in full screen, I just have to restore compositing for full screen windows, and decrease the desktop resolution to 1280x720 : Videolowres.gif In conclusion, why not try to prevent tearing when compositing is off ? Wouldn't it be the ...

Re: LMDE 4, G-sync and How to stop Cinnamon Window Manager

I disabled: General settings > Vsync & Composting for full screen windows, All effects and so on, but no luck. Mind that in order to apply turning off the compositing, Cinnamon must be restarted. I thought that it could be done without restarting (IIRC it was a new feature in a recent Cinnamon ...

Re: LMDE trouble NVIDIA

I tried that once, and it worked. Maybe this is the good solution for rikmas. However, in my case, it is of no use : my concern is that all video on Youtube are juddering because the Intel graphics controller is not powerful enough to smoothly display 60 different frames per second in 1920x1080. Sin...

Re: LMDE trouble NVIDIA

I've got the same behaviour here, with a similar hardware : laptop with intel integrated graphics, plus an nvidia Geforce GPU. With LMDE3, it was possible to install the nvidia drivers (but they would only work in Cinnamon safe mode) With LDME4, if I install the nvidia drivers, the GPU used is still...

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

Hi, I have purged all the Nvidia packages thanks to your tip. Then I installed the 418 driver again. I rebooted. Then I installed Nvidia-settings. But when I run it, I get the following message : temp.png If I click on Valider, I only have the two items that you can see in the menu. So I installed n...

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

By the way, the system information says that it is a desktop, but this is wrong. It is a laptop. :)

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

Thanks for the hint. I don't have a secure boot option in my motherboard setup. I have a fast boot option, though, and also an UEFI / Legacy boot option, but my Linux won't boot in UEFI, only in Legacy. I'll try to mess with these options next time I install the drivers (currently, I have again rest...

Hi there. In case the information could help anyone, I was too optimistic in the message above. The picture glitch is still there. It disappeared not because the setting was updated, but because the the computer was restarted (or because the laptop screen was open, both make the glitch disappear). N...
