Re: Broken Nvidia Driver

Driver Manager now informs me there's no hardware acceleration on startup. Driver Manager does not give that warning. The Cinnamon desktop gives that warning because it detects that software rendering is being used. (instead of just no hardware acceleration and wrong resolution). That sounds like a...

Re: LM stuck on underscore after installing Nvidia drivers

it can be something related with my Motherboard? Does your motherboard give an option to use onboard graphics OR the discrete (Nvidia) card? Or does it let you use both simultaneously? There is a bug with the i915 Intel driver that can result in a black screen. Based on the investigation in the thr...

Re: OEM Hp 5700g and chipset drivers ???

I tried multiple times to get a good signature from Linux Mint 20.1 "Ulyssa" - Cinnamon (Edge, 64-bit). Every time i run it through the terminal it says "bad signature". Seems to be a on going problem with their releases. Many people have successfully installed Mint using that I...

Re: OEM Hp 5700g and chipset drivers ???

I have the beta 20.2 installed on this HP with a 5700g processor. The driver manager thinks i have a Intel CPU so i cancelled that install. My understanding was that this version would support AMD g-series processors and chipset. The LM20.2 version would not support your system any better than the ...

Re: Need to open lid twice to get session after suspend

The lid behaviour is the same. Meanwhile, the 1-8 became 5-2 :shock: Sounds like the firmware compensated for the change to make sure the webcam was still powered. That is just a guess on my part. I do not know the specifics of how the hardware handles this situation. p.s. In this new usb configura...

Re: Ti1060 Max3Q laptop, gfx driver assistance

Done, same issue with nvidia X-server: https://imgur.com/RWoDJil The way the switchable graphics (Intel and Nvidia) is currently working is when Intel is rendering, Nvidia is not loaded.

Re: Ti1060 Max3Q laptop, gfx driver assistance

The issue have been there from day 1 I upgraded from 19.3 to 20.1 (both cinamon 64-bit). Long story short, it may be that intel where "in service" before upgrading, and after upgrade it is set for same GFX as last use, and this was intel. I presume you updated from LM19.3 to LM20 and then...

Re: Linux mInt Cinnamon boots to a screen saying "Press Enter to continue (or press ctrl-D)"

When the LM20.1 ISO was created, all the files were frozen at the time it was created. That means after installing it, you would need to run the updates available in Update Manager. The data you posted indicates you have not run updates. Cinnamon, muffin, the kernel, XOrg, mesa and many others have ...

Re: Ti1060 Max3Q laptop, gfx driver assistance

To check to see if nvidia files are installed, you can run dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia . In a proper installation, there are approximately 20-25 files with nvidia-driver#xxx in their name. You may know this from LM19, but Secure Boot can block Nvidia files from loading even though they are installed. Y...

Re: Ti1060 Max3Q laptop, gfx driver assistance

My nvidia X server is not usable. It just opens with a small window and having the cross for closing it, help botton and finish botton. That is usually an indication not all the Nvidia files loaded. While you may have installed the files, they need to load at boot time and load in the correct order...
