Re: Driver Manager not showing nvidia options

Still no luck - ubuntu-drivers devices returns nothing, and I'm still not seeing anything in Driver Manager. Also tried running sudo update-apt-xapian-index after installing apt-xapian-index (as recommended in the Kubuntu ticket you linked to), to no avail. I did try running Driver Manager from the ...

Re: Driver Manager not showing nvidia options

Xorg.0.log posted to https://pastebin.com/g4a10EiA

This is after a fresh boot with the nvidia device enabled via prime-select, and then plugging my external monitor after logging in to Cinnamon. I'm happy to provide one with the Intel device enabled if that's also helpful.

Removing that and installing the -396 drivers directly wi...

Re: Driver Manager not showing nvidia options

Thanks for the ideas. With the PPA, the -396 drivers are available via apt, but I still don't see any options in Driver Manager. Attempting to install the nvidia drivers manually with: sudo apt install nvidia-driver-396 nvidia-prime nvidia-settings nvidia-utils-396 lands me with the same result I sa...

Driver Manager not showing nvidia options

I've got a Thinkpad that's been running Mint 19 / Cinnamon quite happily using the Intel half of its Optimus hardware for a month or two now (Unity refugee loving Cinnamon so far!), but I've just received a 4K monitor I'd like to hook up, and that brought back the flashing black borders I thought I ...

Re: Flashing black borders around windows with Nvidia-390 and Mint 19

Different video card (Intel), but same problem. After trying various driver-based solutions, this bit of theme configuration seems to be what finally fixed this issue for me:
